There's no seeing through this thing! Amazing range of dark colors flowing through the head. Thick lacing! Very dramatic appearance.
Smells..chocolate, sugar, caramelized sugar- almost like a smore. Some vanilla bean in there, as well.
Very sweet on top of the tongue with lots of chocolate, but very bitter under the tongue. Somewhat unpleasant down there, had the tendency to keep it on top of the tongue for the bottle.
Definitely a dessert beer. Extremely flavorful but I could see how this could be a little too much at times. Share a bottle, or have a full bottle if you're feeling decadent.

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
