L: Dark onyx hues with a nice rusty/khaki head
S: Marshmallow, vanilla bean, cacao nibs
T: Big barrel, but underpinned by rich fudge, dark chocolate, and a subtle vanilla
F: Stupid thick - on par with Assassin, Sr-71, KBBS, etc.
O: Such a treat. Great barrel and nice vanilla. Excellent from TG.

It has all the barrel flavor you'd expect from a big TG stout. But the vanilla finishes oddly sweeter than it should. This is no doubt a world class beer. I just think there's a little too much unfermented sugars right away. Knowing there's likely still some active yeast too, I suspect time in the bottle will round things out nicely. In a year X will be perfect.
