look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance- deep brown color with dark brown fine white head. some lacing
Aroma- Vanilla, coffee roasted grain Graham cracker and chocolate
taste- Vanilla, coffee roasty malts. Not sure if the sweetness is from the vanilla or the alcohol. Molasses.
Mouthfeel- Buttery smooth texture, slight warming from the alcohol.
Overall- This one is extremely well done. The only beer I think that has a better use of vanilla is the Stone Smoked Vanilla Porter. The coffee plays seamlessly with the hops, mouthfeel is spot on alcohol is subtle but present. Of all the coffee stouts/porters I have had this week I would say that 1st is Black's Dawn , and tied for second is Victory at Sea and Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout. With Victory at sea maybe edging Lag out just a bit. A tasty Bev indeed
