4.3/5 rDev +13.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
22 oz bottle poured into beamish imperial pint
appearance: pitch black with creamy milk chocolate head, very nice lacing
aroma: really strong vanilla aromas and of course coffee and some fruity tones
taste: really rich and fruity for the style, vanilla shows u big time again, there is also even a citric quality to it to go with the coffee and the oats give it nice body. there are some plumpear and apple stuff going on, nice dry finish with lingering coffee but the java in this beer is not overwhelming just a part of the experience. As noted in another post the bitterness really intensifies as it warms in a good way
overall: a very different beer for the style, very drinkable and tasty with a lot of different flavors going on that meld well, really fruity in an interesting way, layers of flavor my hat goes off to troegs for this one realy quite nice!

12oz bottle served in a Prairie Teku
Thanks to Yoshi Optimator for this one.
A - Dark brown body with dense mocha head leaving specks of lacing.
S - Cold coffee, chocolate, raisins, molasses, roasted.charred caramel.
T - Nice cold roasted coffee presence, charred caramel and molasses malts, chocolate covered raisin. A strong core of dark bready malt, creamy and decadent. Finishes with strong malts, raisins, and fading coffee.
M - Full bodied, thick, creamy and viscous body, low carbonation.
Good coffee presence with a stout and creamy body. The raisin/plum plays well and adds a creative layer. Nice creamy texture, this went down very smooth.
