A: Coffee colored with an off white foam head. It has a nice lacing as well.
S: Subtle vanilla with notes of dark chocolate and coffee.
T: Lots of Dark Chocolate, some coffee, and subtle notes of vanilla.
M: medium-low carbonation. It also has a nice rich, creamy silkiness.
O: Very good. I have been waiting to try this for awhile and I definitely wasn't disappointed. Its aroma leads you to believe there will be a lot of rich vanilla, but the opposite is true. You actually end up getting some nice subtle vanilla with lots of rich dark chocolate. I was very impressed, this was definitely a great beer.

This poured the color of midnight at a bottom of a well, with an espresso-crema cap of foam.
The aroma held layers of dark chocolate and roasted coffee, roasted malts, a hint of vanilla. It’s a sipper, with a smoothly warming flavor of a sweetly bitter espresso with cacao and vanilla, and just a touch of booziness at the end. This is a big beer but so enjoyable!
