Bottle > Pint Glass
A - Dark Brown/Black with one finger of fizzy brown head, no lacing
S - Really nice roasty aroma, you do get some slight hints of a woody character, slight vanilla, and a touch of smoke.
T - Bitter coffee rind, earthy and woody tones as well, a little hop bite, roasted malt.
M - A little too carbonated, would prefer it to be more silky, but still good.
O - This is a classic beer to me, one of the beers that got me into craft, and I still enjoy it to this day. the oak presence is really nice, and not dominating. Very earthy in flavor, but overall an outstanding beer.

I got this as an extra in a trade. I'm not much of a stout drinker, but this one was tasty. Super smooth and easy to drink. There is a wonderful oakiness which I know was intended and just a slight hint of vanilla over the roasted malt body. I am impressed...this beer may have just opened a new door for me.

Found in Whole Foods sampler. $12.99 for 12.
A: Decent pour, could use more lasting head and more lacing.
S: Roasty malts, oak, vanilla, and chocolate. Plenty of smokey oak.
T: Follows the smell. Starts with creamy roasted malts, chocolate, a little cocoa powder, then smoked flavors, roasted barley, charred oak. It's soft and creamy. Nice balance of bitter, smoke, vanilla, and sweet. Warming. Great night cap.
M: Creamy and smooth, medium body with modest carbonation.
F: Densely packed flavor as in a RIS, without the ABV. Perfect everyday, slightly sweet stout, with good balancing hops, bitter, and smokey finish. Must try.
