COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unfiltered dark ale with large doses of chocolate and roasted malts along with five other barleys round out this once a year treat. Sealed with a kiss of vanilla. It's a BEER! NO.. It's a DESSERT! NO.. It's YUMMY!!

On tap at the brewery: Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of cocoa, vanilla, roasted malts, and toffee. Taste is cocoa, sweet vanilla, and a little bitterness from the roasted malts. Medium body, solid stout.

From the tap at the brewery. Very very delicious with a thick dark brown color. The smell is of strong vanilla, but not much more. At first taste, there is a lot of vanilla flavor, but not too much. There is also hints of coffee and maple syrup.

Poured from a 64oz growler, opaque black, small thick dark tan head. Aroma is strong dark coffee, sweet vanilla, milk chocolate, burnt grass, and toffee. Starts sweet, with caramel, toffee, chocolate and vanilla, followed by a mix of vanilla extract, dark roast coffee, and dark chocolate. Smoky roasty bitter coffee and sweet vanilla intermingle throughout the experience, and are very well balanced with each other. Finishes slightly dry, with lingering coffee and vanilla. Very nice beer, one of my favorite non-IPAs from Willimantic Brewing.
