Pours out a really black liquid with 1/2 finger of tan suds and nice lacing around the glass.
Smell is vanilla bean and coffee with mocha caramel sugars galore. Fig Newtons come to mind here also.
Taste is not as sweet as the aroma would have you believe. Vanilla and coffee and slight caramel. The coffee bitterness is at the end but you still have a vanilla sweet taste in the background as the flavors die.
Mouthfeel is varied here. You start out with a stickyness followed by a bitterness then a dry clean that makes you want another sip.
Pretty balanced beer here. Pretty darn good for a dark Stout.

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.
