3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Wanderlust. Black pour with a thin tan head. Coffee and roasted malts on the nose. Some coffee grounds, vanilla, and roasted nuts. Not bad. Flavor is fairly heavy on the coffee and vanilla. A lot of coffee grounds, toasted walnuts, and ash. Sort of bitter. Slightly chalky as well.

Poured up at Flanny’s Arizona on Tap Festival with a deep dark mahogany body that has coppery amber like edges and supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts mixed with malt sweetness and a touch of vanilla and caramel. The taste has dark roasted malts, a thin river of burnt malts and then sweeter notes coming from both straight up maltiness and caramel malts. Well beneath these notes is a touch of vanilla that’s banging around in the background. Pretty nice stuff.

Vanilla forward with roasty aroma. Taste is more vanilla than coffee. Very tasty brew.

Sampled at Arizona Strong Beer Fest, 2013. Very pronounced vanilla notes in aroma and taste. Good, but not roasted, stout base. Surprisingly low ABV for the flavor. Almost a session stout!

On tap at Satchmo's BBQ in Flagstaff on 02/06/13
Really nice smooth stout. Light roasted coffee flavor cut down the middle by vanilla bean. Nose is heavy in vanilla. Very well balanced and drinkable. Would love to try this on a nitro tap.
