This smells of vanilla chocolate and caramel which is quite sweet more like a malzbier than a beer only even sweeter. The taste is very similar but unfortunately also has a slightly sickly quality to it wchich makes it almost undrinkable.

Therefore it s an avoid rather than a drink.

330 mL black/dark brown bottle.

A: blackish beer poured into a glass, thinnish head.

S: burnt sugar and minor underpinnings of cocoa.

T: slightly disappointing here--I love Harvey's and I tend to like sweet stouts (or any stouts for that matter), but I was a bit letdown on this one. It was way too subtle, didn't taste of much of anything.

M: mouthfeel echoes the taste--maybe I got a bad bottle?

D: wasn't that great, but I'd give it another shot just to be sure.
