Scipio (817) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Pours black with a full, frothy tan head. Aroma is mostly vanilla, along with some cocoa and chocolate. The taste is very pleasing. It smoky and chocolaty with some earthy malts and vanilla. What makes this one different and somewhat surprising is the grapefruit citrus impressions that are here as well. This is very noticeable in the aftertaste, which is a delicious blend of the grapefruit, smoke, and chocolate. Full bodied with a thick, oily texture. This is very good and I really enjoyed this. I don’t find this very Christmasy, but that really doesn’t matter. Its an excellent stout without any negatives that I can find.
