On tap at the brewery. Dark brown pour with a kaki head. Coffee and vanilla bouquet. Wow, I can’t recall a low ABV base stout with this much vanilla. Nice complexity with vanilla that gives way to dark roasted malt, expresso, and tobacco notes. Good body and mouthfeel. Impressive, the amount of flavor from 6.5%. It’s not Expedition or Serpent but it’s still a damn fine stout...

WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 21, 2016
Bottle sitting in my parents fridge in Maine. Pour is deep black with a rich big brown head. Nose coffee and malt. Taste is bitter a rich. This feels far too much like drinking carbonated cold brew coffee. Which is far removed from what I expected from opening. Too much coffee for me

NikkTwist (3225) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2016
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.

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.
