Poured from 12oz can. Somehow I ended up with about 8 of these suckers and well I'm quite glad I have them.
A- Pours a deep brown almost black color but not quite there. Two finger mocha colored head shows medium retention. Nice thick chunks of lace that is somewhat sheety on the sides of the glass.
S- Roasted malts in the front of the aroma gives off a nice coffee style roast. Hints of vanilla and light darker fruits in the middle of the aroma. Ending has some nice coffee like notes with hints of cream and caramel malts. The alcohol while present doesn't go over the top like one would think.
T- Nice roasted malts in the front give off a light roasted coffee flavor. One would expect the vanilla to come out more so here like in the aroma but it doesn't. Instead there is a light cocoa like flavor that lingers into the middle of the beer. The middle of the beer shows a light tameness to this beer with caramel malts blending with darker fruits. While this is nice it takes a notch down on the overall flavor profile. The ending on this beer brings out the roast once again this time the vanilla comes along with it. While light it does the trick nice. Alcohol is crisp and a little on the heat side. Not bad at all.
M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the style. Coffee roast, light vanilla, and darker fruits are left on the palate. Aftertaste is warming alcohol, coffee roast, and light vanilla. Flavors were balanced overall with the style kept in mind. No off flavors were present when drinking this one. Medium alcohol drying on the palate with each sip.
O- This was a nice drinking stout. Flavorful without being too filling. While it coats the paalte nicely it doesn't go overboard. The ABV is a little high but it would be perfect for those colder evenings.
