look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Big opaque black body with a generous tan head and decent retention. Nice lace.

Nose is chock full of cocoa and malt.

Rich, with a slightly powdery(?) cocoa character. Not as sweet as people are saying, and I bought this several months ago. Bitterness is from malt here, not hops. Kind of dark chocolate bitter.

Nice and thick feel, no complaints. Neither syrupy nor fizzy.

Good, but I don't understand the hype or price.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pitch black with a small tan head. Some lacing.

Great aroma. Sweet, chocolate, vanilla, coffee. Really big but in a good way.

Massively sweet with so much chocolate flavour it isn't funny. Great vanilla notes too. Really smooth and very easy to drink.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Good.

An awesome beer in my view. The sweet, chocoalte, vanilla flavour is fantastic and really works well here.

On tap at Birch.

A - Pitch black. Nice head.

S - Subtle smells, slight pepper, coffee.

T - Vanilla, chocolate, coffee. Very smooth.

M - Pretty creamy taste. Medium bodied, maybe slightly less.

O - A solid beer from Evil Twin. I found it very easy to drink. Different from a lot of beers in this style, due to its mildness. but there's no denying the enjoyability of it.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance – A dark black color with a very thick chocolate foamy head that never completely disappears. Leaves a thin white lacing on the glass.

Smell – Malt, vanilla, chocolate cake, and anise. Smells a bit weak for a 10.4%abv beer, but get's better as it warms.

Taste – Chocolate, malt, a hint of vanilla, with a touch of booze.

Mouthfeel – Slightly creamy. Goes down easy for 10.4 abv. Leaves a somewhat bitter chocolate aftertaste.

Drinkability – An easy drinking stout.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Thin bare skim on the surface, wispy and broken with a tan ring around the edges if the glass. Minimal lacing, brown when poured, black in the glass.

Big vanilla aroma, some supporting chocolate and coffee notes also, light sweetness present. Taste is similar, dominant vanilla with chocolate not far behind. Very light bodied considering the abv. Sort of a slippery feel, with a light aftertaste of ashy roastiness. Overall it's pretty good though I'm not sure it's worth the premium price. Seems kind of like Breakfast Stout minus the coffee with a dose of vanilla bean instead.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle poured into a Hill Farmstead Tulip

A - Dark, chocolate brown. Small mocha colored head sits on top.

S - Light milk chocolate, roasted coffee, sugar, and a light milkiness

T - Dark chocolate that gives it a slight bitter note up front. Roasted coffee, light smoke and charcoal, black cherry. Espresso in the finish that leaves a strong bitter finish

MF - Light body, a bit watery which is surprising given the high alcohol. Light astringent on the finish with the espresso

O - Decent stout that has a lot of flavors but they don't seem to blend together perfectly. I wish the body was a bit thicker as I think it make the flavors pop a bit more. The espresso on the finish is nice but a bit strong so make sure you like coffee before you pick this one up.
