4.68/5  rDev +11.2%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a 341 ml bottle into a stemmed tulip glass.
Bottle Date: 2013/09; Poured: 2013/10

A: Dark, jet black, almost totally opaque save for the very edge where a bit of light shine through highlighting the color. 3 fingers of a cloudy mocha head that falls fast to a thin creamy collar and leaves behind curtains of lace.

S: A big nose! Sweet chocolate and dark roasted malt, coffee and sweet vanilla.

T: Wow, so smooth! The roasted notes from the grain, dark malt and coffee first, but quickly mellows with rich chocolate and vanilla milkshake flavors. The finish is very long and complex transitioning between dark and roasted and sweet .

M: Medium-high body and medium carbonation; rich, smooth, silky.

O: Incredible depth of flavor and mouthfeel for a 6.5% beer; and it’s truly delicious to boot!

4.26/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

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.
