Pours a viscous, black color with a big, stable brown head.

Has aromas of toffee, fudge, smooth coffee and nougat, leading to a well balanced, slightly sweeter nose.

Tastes of molasses, glazed toffee, earthy malts with hints of bitter coffee, coated up by a decent creaminess. Roasted coffee beans provide an enjoyable balance to the sweet, warming toffee. Turns even sweeter during the finish, with sugary coca-cola, molasses and a gently, dry, bitter chocolate note.

22oz old label Vamp slay. Not sure how old. Real nice sweet finish. Room temp opens it up.

Vampire Slayer label from the 2nd Anniversary release.

Appearance: Pours black. Some dark browns at the edges. Head is a darkish khaki and disappears almost immediately. Small collar persists for a bit but drops out completely after a few sips. Pours viscous and smooth. Minimal carbonation on the pour.

Smell: Smoked malt is right up front. It's a bit muted after the years, but it's still around. Malts are deeply roasted. The smoked malt pretends at some char. Slightly burnt. Sweet dark fruit. Raisin in abundance with some fig and a touch of dark cherry. Hops are minimal with a slight earthy backing. Some grassy notes. A deep woodiness that reads as something other than oak. A slight push of alcohol through the back. A mild backing spiciness, from wood and alcohol.

Taste: Dark fruit dominates. Raisin and dark cherry. Touches of fig and plum. Minimal hop presence. Mildly earthy with some grassy backing notes. Malts are sweet and slightly syrupy with some deeply roasted elements. Smoked malt runs through the back. Very mildly burnt. Sweet. Raisins soaked in alcohol. Cola syrup. Some mild spiciness from the various woods used and the alcohol. Some alcohol heat on the back. Smoke increases as the beer warms and adds some meaty elements. Almost jerky-like. Some soy sauce.

Mouthfeel: Medium body pushing toward full. Mild carbonation. A touch of creaminess. Mostly smooth with some mild rough edges. A touch of astringency from the alcohol.

Overall: Worked better as a component.

It's a solid smoked stout. It's a bit underwhelming on its own, but it has some character. A bit sweet overall.
