3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Black, cola hued edges, large foamy dark khaki head, nice lacing.   Soft roast on the nose, a little lactose sweetness, just a touch of vanilla.   Smooth on the tongue, lightly hopped, soft roast, with a bit of that thick oatmeal stout like body.   Vanilla is very light.   Solid stout, straightforward.   Clean finish, very soft roasted malts linger.   Good stuff.   Thanks Brad!

Black with a decent tan head that shows excellent lacing. Burnt chocolate and vanilla nose. Dark chocolate, mixing with sweetness, a touch of sourness, then a mild hop bitterness towards the finish. Silky, yet moderate carbonation.

From bottle. Pumpernickel black in glass. Thin beige head. The aroma is chicory, charcoal, coffee grinds and some latent sweetness. Complex for style. Taste is punchy, bitter. Some chalky, cacao creeps in upon warming. Well executed.
