Poured from the bottle into an oversized tulip. Nice and black with a tan head that fades quickly.
Lots of chocolate in the nose. Milk chocolate and bittersweet chocolate in equal parts, with some coffee as well. Smell is strong and very inviting.
No surprises on the palate. Plenty of chocolate. Sweet, milk chocolate initially with bitter chocolate and coffee following. Vanilla works it's way in nicely. Overall flavor is fairly bitter with just a little earthy hopiness in the finish.
Mouthfeel is smooth with just enough carbonation. Finish is surprisingly dry given the sweet flavor. This is an excellent chocolate stout, will be buying again.

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
