First had: on cask at Yards Brewing Co., Philly, PA, at their 5th Annual Real Ale Fest 2012

I was kind of confused by this one. Someone at the festival--a confessed non-beer-connoisseur--warned me that this beer had a dirty taste to it, but I was undaunted. The color was definitely dark brown and not black, with a small, soapy, off-white head. For a beer that supposedly showcases chocolate, cocoa, and vanilla, I honestly got mostly coffee in the nose. Subsequently, big taste of coffee grounds, making it more like a straight up coffee stout than anything (and not a great one at that), quite bitter, with perhaps some mild chocolate as an afterthought; no vanilla detectable. Thin body for a stout, medium mouthfeel. Fairly drinkable, but doesn't live up to its description at all.

I'm a fan of Iron Hill's beer, but something was definitely off here.

A: Beer hand pulled from cask at Iron Hill in Chestnut Hill with a frothy two-finger tan head and black in color with some light coming through. Great lacing on the glass as this goes down.

S: Smells of chocolate milk mixed with stout. Low on the hop notes but a rich roasted but not burnt barley aroma with a hint of vanilla. Smells like a wonderful combination of beer and dessert.

T: Chocolatey roast of malt is full and rich but not burnt tasting. Sweet and bitter chocolate flavors and milk combine to give more of a sweet finish. No hop flavors coming through all the sweet malt. A touch of vanilla in the aftertaste too.

M: Creamy smooth but with a medium- full body seems a bit light. My wife had a porter and I tried it and it was fuller than the stout.

D: Overall a must try stout especially those fond of chocolate! This beer is not heavy and therefore easy going down and allowing for more. Could also work well as a dessert beer.
