12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Bottled on 09/09/11.
A- Ink black pour with only the lightest highlights around the edges. One finger head fades fast giving way to a nice white cap.
S- Roasted malts, iced coffee, baker's chocolate. Hint of vanilla.
T- Tastes follows with coffee and chocolate battling it out for dominance. Very subtle oak vanilla note with a slight salinity. Well balanced.
M- Very smooth and easy drinking. On the lighter side of the style with a somewhat high level of carbonation.
O- Really enjoyed this one. I'll continue to seek it out while it's in season.
