[email protected] Blue Session 2016. Black colour, mediumsized beigeish brown head. Aroma is vanilla, liquorice, some chocolate, mild roasted notes as well as some slight alcohol. Flavour is vanilla, liquorice, some chocolate and overall rather sweet. Still in a very nice and mellow way.

Pitch black in color. No head. Lots of vanilla up front but no coffee aroma. Flavor has vanilla up front with mild chocolate in the back. No noticeable coffee. Pretty thin on the palate.

Keg @ GTMW 16. Deep brown pour with a small head. Creamy vanilla and cows tails on the nose. Some cocoa. Chocolate roast. Flavor is similar. Nice vanilla accents to the roasted grain and dark chocolate. Moderately ashy. Full body, soft carb. Quite silky. Very good.

Sampled from the tap at GTMW 2016. Pours a clear dark brown with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of vanilla and sweet dark grains with light roasted malts supporting. Flavor has a combination of dark grains and roasted malts with sweet vanilla growing.

Black red edges, 1.5 finger milk chocolate head. light vanilla bean aroma with a ropey leather like aroma. Crisp flavor like a sweet hop bitterness and vanilla is really bare minimum. ice cream, creamy cocoa
