I had this outside at night, so the body looked black to me. The head, when head to a light, was a deep tan. Strong coffee notes are in the nose accompanied by bittersweet chocolate and roasted barley. The flavor’s fairly sweet even with all of its roasty qualities, the chocolate adding a balancing bitterness. II almost suspected bitter malts!) There’s a slight surge of sweetness before the finish when a roasted dryness takes over.

Pours a deep garnet/black holding a creamy, khaki head. Aroma of bitter coffee and bittersweet chocolate, a little sweet but, yes... coffee roasts tend to dominate. A bittersweet chocolate flavor is carried by a creamy mouth to a dry finish. Sweet caramel and milk chocolate notes come out before mild bitterness in the finish.

22 oz bomber from Brew Kettle: Lasting light beige head on an mohogany brown body. A little light IMHO for an dry stout? A light diacetyl & chocolate are the first aromas that grab my attention with diacetyl being lighter than chocolate. Some vanilla notes with caramel. Very, very, very, light roastiness in the aroma. Seems like a chocolate & brown sugary combination as it warms. Balance of flavor is definitely to bitter, but from hops, not grains at all. Very chocolate in the flavor with hints of roast. Herbal hoppy finish & long aftertaste make this a little too bitter for my liking. Also hints of diacetyl & vanilla in the flavor. Very thin, almost watery m/f. Dry/astringent and higher carbonation for stout style. Not horribly bad, but I wouldn’t want another after drinking this one right at the moment.

Smells of vanilla, choclate, malt, and coffee. Armoa is not that strong, like all of their beer. Dark black with big white head. Strong vanilla flavor infused with choclate. VERY tasty. Palate as smooth but a little thin. Overall, a great Irish Stout filled with vanilla and choclate flavor.
