Pours black and with only a hint of red when held to the light. Thin but lasting head of tan foam and minimal lacing. Nose is bitter chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. Some oats and a small hint of alcohol. Nose warms with some dry toast and a hint of vanilla. Taste is sublime, bitter chocolate and coffee. Sweeter than you think. The roast is smooth but lends a touch of bitter to the hops which have waited in the wings with a touch of floral and bitter. Alcohol is warming and it finishes dry and with a touch of vanilla in the aftertaste. Velvety smooth, this a great stout.
