On cask @ Karl Strauss Costa Mesa. Black pour with a nice bit of tan foam. Oak, plenty of vanilla, and a bit of cocoa liqueur. Lots of roast, some molasses, and a bit of chocolate milk. Flavor is sweet chocolate milk and tons of vanilla bean. A bit of oak, minimal bitterness, lots of chocolate, and a touch of coffee. Roasted malt, caramel, and a bit of molasses. Pretty solid.
