look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Ink black body; thin, light tan head (3.5). Mint and vanilla with a subdued dark fruit aroma; chocolate; sweet (3.75). Bittersweet chocolate; vanilla; mild anise; subtle spicy heat (4.0). Medium-heavy body; sugary yet faintly dry finish (3.5).

A rather interesting stout with a strong vanilla overtones. Rich, heavy, and decadent on many levels and very satisfying.

Amazing beer. Smooth and heavy at the same. I'm not sure if I like it better in the bottle or a icy cold glass. I guess a few more cases will tell. Cheers

3.54/5  rDev -9.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Deep dark brown with a big head of foam and decent lacing. A lot of carbonation hidden in the darkness.

Smell: Roasted malts.

Taste: Roasted malts: Coffee, oatmeal, chocolate.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, creamy and dry. Slight hop bitterness in the finish.

The Verdict: Good beer. Well balanced and very smooth, but a bit bland overall. Nothing to really complain about, it is a good solid stout but there’s nothing to really make it stand out from the crowd.

Bottle to tulip

Sweet, smooth sipping brew. Sweet malty, chocolaty entry and flavor. Slight hints of cocoa and coffee. For 50 IBU's, the bitterness is very, very mild, pleasant and welcomed. Cooked brown sugar and cooked caramel in the finish. Very slight earthy hoppiness detected. Superior mouth feel, silky smooth. Light carbonation melds well with silky mouth feel. 7.2%, but drinks like a 5% session ale. A must grab if you are entering the stout game.
