UPDATED: JUN 14, 2017 Nitro draft at Bru Craft. Opaque dark brown/black pour that started with a solid head of brown foam. Giant showing of lace. Creamy stout flavors of dark cocoa, vanilla and espresso. Semi-glossy black liquorice. Hints of cigarettes and vinyl. Some complex notes but feels easy breazy. ekstedt (6976) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 12, 2016

Dark with thick head and decent lacing. Strong coffee aroma, I do get a hint of vanilla, or chocolate, or both. Nice flavor with a little earthiness. More carbonation than others. Liked it over all. HopTsing (575) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JUN 4, 2016
From the bottled poured a medium bodied black brew with a brown head. Flavors and aromas of coffee, and malt with a hint of vanilla. commonshawn (1321) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 21, 2016
Tap at brewery with commonmac and rosskyle and samadouche. Black with small off white head. Beautiful chocolate aroma. Taste is amazing. Chocolate, roasted malt, high sugar, very smooth finish and just enough bite. One of the best stouts I’ve had.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with a creamy tan head. Aroma of faint roasted malt, coffee, and the slightest hint of vanilla. Creamy mouthfeel, easy drinking with a slight dry finish. Darwenus (1159) - Virginia, USA - MAY 5, 2016
Not a strikingly different stout, but a good one. This beer pours dark brown to black with thin, lacy head. The aroma is coffee and deeply roasted malt. Strong coffee on the flavor. If the vanilla is there at all, it’s subtle. It isn’t sweet, but it is rich and tasty. Creamy mouthfeel. blueshockey24 (648) - Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2016
