Nitro tap with a tight creamy head. Decent lacing. Nose offers up coffee and vanilla. Great roasty malt backbone with lots of coffee and light vanilla. The vanilla brings out mild chocolate and mocha notes. Firm hop bitterness gives a clean finish with light notes of mocha and vanilla. Mildly creamy mouthfeel that's just a touch thin. Not enough to bother me, just wish for a hair more carbonation. Super drinkable and delicious. Great session ale and dessert beer.

On nitro-tap at Station House in Forest Hills

A- looks like a pretty stout out of a nitro tap. Dark with a 2 finger creamy-brown head. Not gorgeous though.

S- malty vanilla and coffee. Not strong though. Really have to reach for it.

T- oh wow, this performs really well. Tasty roasted malts with a great vanilla presence. Some coffee and chocolate.

M- slightly watery. Decent carbonation. Very sessionable, especially at 4.9%.

O- this was a pleasant surprise. Drinks very much like a dry stout, but has the sweet maltiness of an american stout.

Well done Yonkers

On-tap at Bronx Ale House, Bronx, NY

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a half finger high creamy tan head that has excellent retention properties and only died down and consistently left a short head covering the surface and a coating of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of roasted malts are present in the nose along with some hints of vanilla.
T: Like the smell, the taste has light flavors of roasted malts along with hints of vanilla beans, the latter of which becomes stronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels light-bodied (but not watery) and a bit smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is a perfectly sessionable stout that I could find myself drinking all night long as it has a nice amount of flavors but isn't heavy or high in alcohol.
