Draft pour on tap at Stout Fest 2013 (Chicago, IL). Pours a big thicker black pour, some deep hues. Aromas are cocoa and roast, some oak, tannic, vanilla and wood. Firm frothy head dies to a good frothy layer, laces ok. Initial is fuller bodied, cocoa and toffee, some black roast, gentle toastiness and roast. Mellow coffee. French oak, distinct tannic elements, wet wood, splinters shows. Some cocoa, creaminess in the body as we move into the middle. A bit of cocoa, roast, tannic french oak, woody. A bit mellow, cocoa and dryness. Some roastiness lingers, thins out a bit more. Tasty. A touch thin but pretty nice beer.
