A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a dark brown color and a thick consistency. There was a half inch of foamy, tan-colored, fairly long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.

S: A nice aroma of coffee, vanilla, and malt.

T: Tasted of roasted malt, a hint of vanilla in the finish, coffee, and a little bit of chocolate. Slightly more subtle than some stouts, but still a balanced and complex flavor.

M: A decent amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: Yet another solidly made beer from Maine Beer Company. Well made and drinkable.
