Picked up a growler at the brewery store today. Thank you David so much for setting this aside for me! What a great surprise!

Poured vigorously into a DFH snifter, cascades nicely to a solid jet black with a creamy brown head of loose bubbles. Smell is strong vanilla mocha and coffee. The nose is enjoyable, the flavor is decadent. Vanilla, dark roasted coffee beans, chocolate liqueur and kahlua. Rich, creamy, and velvety! Thoroughly enjoyable mouthfeel, with nice carbonation. This is as imperial as it gets. It's rich, but not overly sweet, however, I'm not sure how much of this growler I'll be able to polish off tonight. I may have to switch over to the Big Twitch! As a single pour, this is the best stout I've ever had. I'm interested to try the original Chaos, and curious what the oak and vanilla bean has done to it. There's some nice smokey wood in the surprisingly dry finish.

David, can't thank you enough! This made my day! I'll be very willing to share this with friends and family, provided they can pry it from my Kung-Fu grip!
