12 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter

A: Pitch black with the tiniest dark mocha head on the pour that is gone as fast as it appears.

S: Roasted malts with rubbing alcohol. You would swear this was BA.

T: Roasted malts throughout. This really needs to warm up. Alcohol is a major flavor factor here, and it really seems like it was barrel-aged. Vanilla is there, but it comes across as like vanilla extract from vodka. The coffee is the most prominent and it is some dark roast of straight black coffee. I don't really get the oatmeal, but this stout is very smooth so that is perhaps where it is at. The hops are out though, I don't really get any.

M: Smooth with just the tiniest bit of carbonation.

O: It's been a while since I've had regular Beer Geek, but I'm not sure how different this is. Both are quite good.

It's what I picture Olivia Wilde's butt tastes like.
