Bottle share Dec 14, 2014.
This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a nice looking hazy dark brown close to black color with an ample half finger-ed white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was a light bubbly lacing. The smell had a nice blend of sweet sugary vanilla to a light bourbon - esque subtly of a slight brown sugar. The taste was extremely sweet with a moderate malty sweet chocolate. There’s a light sweet dried chocolate aftertaste leaving a slight dry slick finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly good sipping quality about it. The carbonation was good for me and for the style. Overall, good as a foreign stout. I’d have it again.

Drank this in honor of taking gold at 2013 GABF. From memory

A - Black with a tan head leaving behind no lace.

S - Roasty malt, dark chocolate, bourbon, oak and plenty of dark fruit.

T - Roasty malt, brown sugar, dark chocolate, vanilla, oak bourbon and dark fruits. I think I remember light notes of coconut.

M - Medium body but seemed a bit thin and watery for the flavors. Made it way too drinkable for 8%+.

D - Thin and light for what I was expecting but that only sped up the pace in which it was consumed. Nice combo of flavors. Glad I got to try it.
