Wow what a great beer...
A - Dark brown. Bit of dark ruby in there held up to the light. Pours with a beautiful ~1.5" tan head, and leaves great amount of lacing.
S - Nose is of coffee and vanilla, maybe literally like vanilla coffee beans. Only complaint is that is was very faint, had to almost stick my nose in my glass!
T - Delicious. Tastes like chocolate/vanilla/caramel/roasted nut/coffee but it all comes in waves and finishes a bit dry but with a pleasant bitterness that doesn't go against the sweetness of the choc/van/coffee. Beautiful blend of flavors.
M = I would say medium bodied. I'm on my 3rd one of the evening and I am pretty full. Maybe a bit above average carbonation.
O - Great. One of my new favorites. Only reason I didn't give Taste a 5 was because of 1 oatmeal stout I've had that was the best stout I've ever tasted. This was good though!!!

Look: Almost a pure black, not quite. About one finger of head which dissolves to a very thin layer in a minute.
Smell: Sweet, creamy and actually, milk.
Taste: A bit more bitter than I remember, but with a very little subtle sweetness. I really can detect and actual hint of milk.
Feel: A little thin for a stout. I'd say medium bodied, but with just a touch of creaminess. Also a bit more carbonation than I'd prefer but not bad.
Overall: This is a pretty good beer. One of those go to choices that's always there when you can't decide. This was one of my original favorites when I first start drinking craft beer a year ago.
