Thrilled to see this brewer available here in Budlitelimeville...
Used Diesel motor oil has nothing on the inky blackness of this stout. Nice tan head and huge gobs of lacing.
Dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, hint of vanilla...nice
Very smooth balance between the dark chocolate and the hint of vanilla. Smooth beyond my wildest expectations for a strong stout. Gets a wee bit bitter and chalky in the back end, but this only encourages you to take amother sip.
Nice medium to full body. Incredibly smooth & creamy until the dry aftertaste kicks in.
Expensive but very nice.

Dark brown to black colour with a creamy coffee head, showing quite strong lacing. Smell has vanilla bean, cocoa, roasty malts, some licorice, a bit of a lemon cleaner note as well. Taste is bittersweet, with lots of chocolate, mixed with vanilla and lemon, licorice, fairly nice actually, the vanilla didn't steal the show, it was a bit sweet but still refreshing. Body was moderate, smooth carbonation with a dry noticeably vanilla finish. I was worried this would be too muc a dessert beer, and tho it certainly leans that way it also has the balance and complexity to be a nice solid stout, worth trying if you see it. Very interesting mix of complex flavours, another winner from this outstanding brewery, well constructed with a nice bittersweet combo.
Serving type: on-tap
