3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
pours dark (almost black) with moderately thick brown head. the aroma is mostly roast, coffee, and cocoa; these are also predominant in the taste, although some very nice vanilla flavor starts to come through at the end. overall, the vanilla is understated and the beer is fairly dry. medium body. very drinkable - a nice change of pace from some of the more extreme imperial stouts.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the brewery. Dark brown pour with a kaki head. Coffee and vanilla bouquet. Wow, I can’t recall a low ABV base stout with this much vanilla. Nice complexity with vanilla that gives way to dark roasted malt, expresso, and tobacco notes. Good body and mouthfeel. Impressive, the amount of flavor from 6.5%. It’s not Expedition or Serpent but it’s still a damn fine stout...

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle sitting in my parents fridge in Maine. Pour is deep black with a rich big brown head. Nose coffee and malt. Taste is bitter a rich. This feels far too much like drinking carbonated cold brew coffee. Which is far removed from what I expected from opening. Too much coffee for me

Nitro draft at Bru Craft. Opaque dark brown/black pour that started with a solid head of brown foam. Giant showing of lace. Creamy stout flavors of dark cocoa, vanilla and espresso. Semi-glossy black liquorice. Hints of cigarettes and vinyl. Not overly complicated but what is there is well done.

Dark with thick head and decent lacing. Strong coffee aroma, I do get a hint of vanilla, or chocolate, or both. Nice flavor with a little earthiness. More carbonation than others. Liked it over all.
