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.

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.

16.9oz bottle from Minks (Marietta, GA). 11.99. No bottle info but I've had it since last August. Served in a Dogfish Head snifter.

Pours black with a three quarter finger tan head. Small occassional pods of lace.

Smells of sweet vanilla and milk chocolate.

Tastes of bitter roasty chocolate malts, coffee, a little vanilla, some cherry and some booze. Still some good stuff but not like a year ago.

Medium full creamy smooth feel with light carbonation. Long bitter cocoa aftertaste.

This is still roasty and tasty but it's a shadow of it's former self. The glorious vanilla sweetness has faded, leaving all bitter cocoa. My first official cellaring dud but I can't blame it on the beer. Fresh, this was outstanding. Aged, it's still better than average. I hope Jeppe still has the recipe & decides to brew it again soon.
