Pours black in color with a 1 finger tan head that has good retention.

There is a rich chocolate malt character in the nose. Vanilla is next and is very subtle but well balanced.

Taste is very well balanced. Chocolate malt is rich, the woody note pulls through also even though I don't think it's barrel aged. Vanilla is subtle and does

Mouthfeel is great for a stout. Good rich body but not to thick. Carbonation is good.

This is a nice beer that while good doesn't match quite the american stout that a Cadillic mountain stout (a tall order) does exspecially based using price as a factor

This is a nice beer and has a nice appearance with a smell of cocoa.

The cocoa has a similar taste but has a bit watery/smoked taste to it not bad but not outstanding.

The drinkabilty might be really good but per bottle it is expensive.

The beer is worth a try hoped for better though.
