On tap @ Blind Tiger House. Deep dark brown in the glass, almost black actually and it has a small sidesticking and islandy top. Really nice dark chocolate nose. Some sweetness found and nuts, coffee and roasted malts are definitely present also. As is a bit of leather. Smells really nice. It has that cloudy light mouthfeel - almost like drinking a cloud. Vanilla extract and a hint of sour wood. Damn, that was really suiting in this beer. It kinda cuts off the roastiness and the chocolate paper. Loaded with vanilla goods also this. Delicious to drink. Leaving a slightly dry and chocolate like flavor in the mouth. Really good! 12.06.2013

Subtle tastes of vanilla not tasting any coffee notes. A very solid one none the less..

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2013 Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 beers this beer poured a black color with a small foamy beige head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was dry, smoky, woody, roasty and had a bit of vanilla. The flavor was roasty and malty with notes of vanilla, cream, a bit of smoke, crisp fruity hops, a bit of toast and whiskey. Long roasty vanilla, toasty and smoke finish. Moderately full bodied. Smoother than I expected and I found that the subtle smokiness really worked for me. Interesting.

Very carbonated. Sweet and bitter malt. Lors of vanilla. Pretty thin but expected at 6.5%. Would be a lot better if thicker and stronger.

Bottle shared by Dogbrick on Memorial Day. Darkest brown in color with a thick tan head. Malty and roasty nose with vanilla and chocolate notes. Flavor starts roasty, but quickly turns to vanilla and chocolate sweetness before a bitter coffee finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16.9oz bottle, bottled 02/19/13, thanks to Mike L. Shared with DanielCoor. Dark brown color. Good thin light brown head. Lots of splotchy lace. Medium-plus body. Moderate chewiness. Smooth, creamy lighter carbonation. Some roasty malt, light dark chocolate, moderate vanilla, not too strong, it’s in check. Hint of coffee. Good moderate sweet taste, lighter bitter. A little sweet, but a solid stout
