look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
A - black, opaque, dark tan head eventually receds, little bit of lacing
S - smoky roast, prune, light cocoa sweetness
T - ah, there's the vanilla, mixed with charred roast, dry cocoa, lingering chocolate aftertaste
M - fully and creamy, light carbonation, really coats the tongue and mouth without being sticky, some drying alcohol warmth in the finish
D - always a treat, yet always quite different
This is about the 4th bottle I've sampled over a couple months, and it's always a different experience. Sometimes the vanilla is huge, sometimes not (as is the case this time). This one has smoke and deep roasty char character that I don't recall in the other bottles either. It greatly changes with temperature too.
All in all, a very nice stout, though perhaps a tad overrated.

A-Pours nearly black.
S-Dark chocolate and sweet vanilla. Impressive vanilla actually. Roast and java. Bitter cocoa powder.
T-Bitter and sweet chocolate. Makes me think of milk and dark chocolate. Vanilla bean. Vanilla a bit softer here. Medium coffee notes. Finishes sweetly roasty.
M-Medium bodied. Velvety feel. Softer bubbles.
O-I enjoyed this one a bunch and the sample has prompted me to grab a bottle in the near future.
Serving type: on-tap

11.5-ounce bottle poured into a stout glass.
Appearance: Pours a near-black with a short tan head. Lacing minimal.
Aroma: This beer has an attractive set of aromas with black coffee, dark fruit, cocoa, vanilla, coffee beans and dark chocolate all represented.
Taste: This is a tasty, complex beer - the taste is close to the nose, with roasty black coffee accented by cocoa and vanilla the dominant theme.
Mouthfeel: It's also not as thick and sludgy as I had guessed. It's very drinkable.
Overall: A beer to seek out. The complex flavor makes this a unique stout - it's full of flavor, and very distinct. A great beer to dip, savor, and enjoy.
