Poured out into a shaker. Black with a one finger head. Smells of chocolate, hops, and a little vanilla. Taste is way more vanilla follows by chocolate and a little hop bitterness... subtle coffee in there as well.

kraddel (7492) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JAN 18, 2013
bottle at home pours black, foam is very light brown to white. fading, but stays . aroma is not intense at all. i can pick up some vanilla, yet i have to search for it . taste is .. realy drinkable ( not to much carbo , light mouthfeel, thinner thing) you have the softness ( vanilla prob) some sweetness ( cacao? ) some roasted malts. nothing realy highlights here. just a very drinkable good stout to drink in bars in stead of lagers or such. yet not the next big thing in the land of beers .

Suttree (6290) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Trade from Phatdog1 - Thanks! Pours black, with a beige head that my notes call "adorable" (I had been drinking...). Smells like Dark Chocolate and marshmallow, plus a significant amount of coffee. Taste is Chocolate and marshmallow again, almost decadent. Very rich and flavorful.
