Treacly aroma, a bit of marmite too. Black, small dark tan head. Rich full palate, smooth and sweet, pleasant carbonation. Deep roast, a little harshly burnt. Some alcohol warmth, definitely says at least 9%, but not 13% initially. Alas as it warms, the aroma picks up a fair kick of grain spirit. Not getting vanilla at all, and if there’s any coffee it just joins the generic burnt-protein stout thing. Alcohol again comes out in the taste later, and begins to make 13% quite believable. Pretty OK strong stout, but drinkability not so good as there’s no balance. Stretching it out as a sipper doesn’t help, as the alcohol just gets stronger and more obvious and intrusive.

Hard to detect any vanilla really, You may find some though. With such high alc. level, this is really thick to drink, powerful and sweet. Black, small head, very roasty, coffee-ish. It is like sweet diesel actually, and not the easiest of drinks.
