3.58/5 rDev -3.2%
22 oz bomber pours a dark brown color with a very thin tan head. Decent retention though.
Nose is a nice blend of sweet chocolate, almond milk and light roast. Smells pretty simplistic and tasty.
Taste is not quite following the nose...a bit more dry and roasty with a nutty, tannic edge to it. Hops are fairly assertive with a leafy bitterness that is accentuated by the roast. Mouthfeel is a little thin and could use more carbonation and sweet body. A little over attenuated it would seem and some sweetness would go a ways in this beer. I do think this one might benefit from a few months in the cellar and wouldnt be surprised if it was better in a year or so.

This one pours a tremendous black with a nice this short lived head that is the color of dark chocolate with a decent fine lacing down the glass.
The nose is a sweet fruity and tart with notes of spice, coffee and caramel. The hops blend nicely and are subtle.
The taste is more like an imperial stout that has bit more complexity to the flavors. The finish even has a hint of what seem like frosting. So I guess you can declare the cake reference a success.
The mouthfeel is a bit more watery that I expect in a stout. Not terrible but not great, nearly great.
Overall it is a very drinkable beer and rather enjoyable. I can see myself drinking this one again.
