A: Dark hazy crimson.
S: Vanilla aroma, backed up with a roasted barley thickness. Crystal and chocolate malts also break through.
T: Vanilla is an overwhelming first note that carries through and obscures some ofthe more subtle flavors like plum and walnut. Slightly bitter for a stout which hides its more subtle malt character, but caramel and chocolate notes come through.
M: Light carbonation, low abv, and very drinkable. Sessionable even.
O: Good example of the flavored stout style.
Serving type: bottle
