12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours pitch black, nice mocha head and lacing.. good looking brew. Lots of milk chocolate in the nose, along with some vanilla. I can taste the roastiness from the chocolate, but thankfully it doesn't taste burnt. There's a touch of dark fruits and anise. Vanilla is present in the flavors as well. This one has a nice sweetness. There's a touch of oak/wood as well. Mouthfeel is nice, creamy and well carbonated. Not milkshake thick, but enjoyable. Good RIS.
My mind wasn't blown, but this is a pretty solid stout. Good stuff, short of being something special.
