It pours a lovely black color with a beautiful two finger head of caramel colored foam that sticks around for a while. Nose is a little underwhelming, a nice roasted stout with just a hint of vanilla. Taste is simply fantastic. Nothing super strong, but a complex meld of roasted malt, coffee, and just a touch of warming spice, all finishing with a pleasant vanilla aftertaste that leaves you wanting more. Feel is rich and creamy with a proper carbonation level. This is a bit pricey, but the quality of the ingredients is evident in the final product. It's certainly worth a try.
