look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

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.
