12 oz bottle poured. Much thanks to Greg for the bottle! Always a treat to try some fun, new stouts, A cola black pour with a lasting tan fizz head. A sturdy, bold roasted element to this one. Dark, toasted malt. Mostly bold, but has a slight sweet side to it as well. Hints of a cool, cream milk chocolate, but it’s definitely an afterthought with this stout. Very creamy, and gets better as it warms up. Solid stout here.

A fair stout especially for the price. I’ll drink it again. It has good body and a nice coffee presence.

On tap at the Wine Barrel. It poured a black color with a small tan head. The aroma was of roasted malts, chocolate and some caramel. The taste was similar to the aroma with more roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and caramel. Quite tasty.

3.8
vyvvy (6638) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 31, 2016
The beer pours dark brown with a dense tan head. The aroma has lots of chocolate, smooth roast, ice cream malt and dark caramel. It has a medium body that’s pretty soft and has moderate carbonation. The flavor starts with dark chocolate, roasty malt and a bit of apple. The finish has some hoppy bitterness and heavy roast. Pretty solid.
