look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

From 05/10/14 notes. 750ml bottle poured into my new Kane teku glass.

a - Pours a jet black color with two inches of dark tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Light lacing left on the glass. Looks like a great big stout.

s - Smells of vanilla, sweet chocolate, roasted malts, cocoa, dark chocolate, light bourbon, oak, toasted malts, bakers chocolate, cream, and sweet caramel. Awesome nose; lots of vanilla and different types of chocolate. Bourbon is light but adds some nice notes to the nose. Great stuff.

t - Tastes of vanilla, sweet chocolate, oak, roasted malts, alcohol, cocoa, toasted malts, dark chocolate, bourbon, toasted malts, cream, and burnt malts. Taste is very good with a lot of vanilla again, but more dark chocolate, and way more alcohol than the nose led on. Very good but very strong.

m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation. Some heat to it. Better and thicker mouthfeel than last year's ANTEAD, but with that comes a stronger alcohol presence.

o - Overall I thought this was a great beer. I liked ANTEAD last year but not as much as some people, and found it very thin in body, but this year's variants seems much bigger and thicker. This one has a very good nose with tons of vanilla as hoped, and a lot of different types of chocolate, and while the taste is quite good, it is strong and the alcohol shines through in the taste. Well worth checking out, excited for the other two variants.
