Pours black, with a big fluffy tan head, that visibly decreases to a thin lace and leaves some traces on the glass.
Smells mostly of smoked dark malts, burnt bread crust, dark chocolate and coffee bean. Vanilla is pretty hard to detect, a bit more obvious (still faint tho) later on.
Taste is pretty complex, starting with a bit sour red dark fruit (blackcurrants), coffee acidity and a lactic sourness. Roasted malts follow, with dark chocolate, cocoa powder, ground coffee, and a hint of smoke that anticipates the finish. This is where the smokiness shines: ash, earthiness, dry coffee sediment, smoked wood. The astringency from the start lasts, but gets way in the back and it's barely felt in the finish. Vanilla brings a bit of sweetness also, but it's hard to get it at first, revealing itself just when the beer warms, but still faint (gets more chocolatey and sweeter tho).
Smooth body, medium carbonation, dry finish and the aftertaste isn't too rough, but flavorful. Not a smoke bomb either, just a pleasant amount that enriches the malts.
A tasty smoked stout, with a minimum of the advertised vanilla, but solid enough as it is.
