First had: on tap at Liquid Hero

Dark brown-black pour, with a small tan head that sank to a ringlet. Nice nose, plenty of vanilla, with a dark malt roastiness. Strangely, the taste didn't quite live up to the aroma. The vanilla seemed less pronounced, standard roasty malts, with a fair amount of bitterness in the finish. Body was medium, maybe a bit on the thin side for a stout, but still robust enough to be enjoyable.

Serving type: on-tap

A-almost perfect looking beer! Plus a deep black color with excellent light brown head that lasts and lasts. There is a quarter inch thick ring of lacing the entire time. The lacing actually sticks to the glass and stays there! Only one beer I've ever had that looks better...Guinness.
S-coffe bean and cocoa bean shine through. Typical stout smell.
T-bitter dark chocolate and coffee taste. Not much complexity or balance. I do not detect the vanilla at all but wish I did. This beer could use something sweet to counter the bitter.
M-full bodied and smooth. Goes down smooth. Little dry but good.
0-appearance is the star here. Smell is great but the rest is average. I like that it's in a can though. Good to take to the races!!

Dark brown body, red-brown highlights, topped by four fingers of light tan rocky foam.
Stretchy lace.

Roast coffee/mocha aroma.

Roast coffee notes. Not much else. Not getting any vanilla (or chocolate notes for that matter. Very mild hoppiness/bitterness.

Smooth medium, maybe medium plus mouthfeel.

Inoffensive, but not much else.

Review from notes taken a few months ago. On tap at Als served in a pint. The brew appears black in color with a thin tan film that leaves stringy fingers of lace on the glass. Some brown clarity is seen around the edges.

The smell includes notes of vanilla and roast. A bit earthen with muted notes of chocolate.

The taste is earthen with a minor herbal hop flvoring. Some minerals and citrus with stale coffee. A bit of vanilla is faintly noticed into the aftertaste.

This is a medium to lighter bodied brew with a moderate to low level of carbonation. It is overall not terrible but it really is quite lackluster and forgetable.
