BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle: Pours a deep brown with russet highlights topped by a nice frothy beige head and good lace. The aroma is roast, coffee, bittersweet dark chocolate, vanilla bean, herbal hops and a faint plummy ester. The taste delivers a smooth roast and char with a light handed vanilla and mocha note. Some bitterness towards the finish but nothing major. The mouth feel is surprisingly sprite without being over-carbonated, ashy and even a touch astringent. Slick but not heavy, more akin to a porter on the palate than a stout. A nice beer but just seems a touch thin on flavor and mouth feel.

Pour is a dark brown with a tan head and a fair bit of bubbles. Nose is moderate roasted malt, notes of cooked coffee bean with a decent touch of vanilla and notes of dark chocolate. Taste is not sweet but does have a good bit of the vanilla. Light roasted malts, rich chocolate and vanilla, a marshmallow quality, well balanced and not sugary. Pretty well done! Medium body and incredibly smooth feel with gentle carbonation. Very easy to drink.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - MAR 23, 2014
A black body with a brown head that had good retention and lace. Initial aroma had strong coffee malts upfront. Tones of chocolate malts, vanilla and a mild sense of oak. Flavor had nice coffee malts. Semi-sweet chocolate and mild vanilla. Rich and velvety. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

In bottle. Crisp coffee-and-vanilla aroma. Ever so slight vanilla flavor followed by coffee, cocoa, and walnuts. Lots going on for a low-ABV stout. Call it a ?spring stout?? Lovely.

Aroma is mild. Great taste of coffee and chocolate that fades into a great vanilla flavor

4.2
Handypaul (552) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours very dark brown with a big frothy to creamy light brown head that diminishes quickly leaving excellent lacing. Aroma of dark roasted malts, ashen malt, chocolate and a hint of coffee. Lightly bitter and lightly sweet taste with soft carbonation, medium body, oily to creamy texture and a brief lightly bitter sweet finish. Flavors of chocolate, hints of coffee and vanilla. Excellent and well balanced.

une bière d’exception que j’ai déjà envie de reboire, la vanille et la faible effervescence donne une délicatesse a cette stout.
