Rating #950 - Feb 4, 2014- Beer 7 in the @coopwinespirits February discovery bag. Dark brown pour with a weak off white head. Cocoa and vanilla on the nose, and big coffee earthy malt notes. Taste is very rich in coffee and chocolate, mild vanilla bean. Balanced for a sweet stout, very palatable indeed. Nicely put together.

Pretty dark, tan head. Smells of roasted oat and cacao. Tastes the same with some citrus hops and a long roasted oat finish. Sweet, vanilla, not sticky. Ok but chocolate is mild and quite bitter.

Milk chocolate aroma. Little touch of dark berry. Big dark berry taste, bitter chocolate too. Awesome looking head and good lacing. Thin palate. Needs more punch.

This stout pours beautiful almost black with a fluffy tan cloud for a head, this combination always gets me excited because it is the quintessential uniform for stouts everywhere. The aromas remind me of a handmade chocolate and coffee shop near me (Margaret River Chocolate Factory) where the smells of milk and bittersweet dark chocolate fight with freshly made coffee to make this heavenly nose candy that makes me salivate. The body is watery with a lively carbonation, the taste is a nice balance between the sweetness of the chocolate malts and the bitterness of the hops resulting in one tasty beverage!
