A - Dark cola brown, almost black. Medium sized, light, bubbly, light tan head. Average retention leaving very little lace.
S - Loads of vainilla. Some chocolate, cola and anise aroma. Reminds me of root beer really.
T - Tastes even more like root beer. Also has a slight cream soda sweetness to it. Hints of chocolate and a touch of licorice, but it's more or less like drinking slightly flat root beer with a bit of cream soda added.
M - Medium body with lower than average carbonation. Slick and wet feeling.
D - Easy to drink stout. Alcohol is non-existent. Fairly sweet but not cloying. Slick and just goes down the throat easily.
Notes: Very much like drinking root beer without the carbonation. Doesn't exactly taste or feel like I'm drinking a beer. It's not bad, but it's different, although I think it could work well for certain situations.
Serving type: on-tap

This is a great , easy drinking dark brew. Pours a nice dark brown, very bubbly. You could almost mistake for a glass of coke lol. The head is super thin maybe a 1/4"very light colored. It has a pleasant vanilla smell but it's very light. The taste is very light and refreshing. A nice light vanilla taste but not super sweet and over bearing. Very easy drinking. If your looking for a very full bodied, intense, and interesting beer this isn't it but it is great to sip and i'd buy it again. It's not as complex as many of the beer styles I purchase but sometimes a nice easy drinking beer is called for. :)
