Can shared by alexsdad06. Poured dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that lasted with very good lacing. Medium to heavy toasted malt, vanilla and lactic chocolate. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy complex toasted malt and vanilla flavor and a moderate to heavy complex dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer. alexsdad06 (11560) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUL 1, 2017
