look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

This one pours a fairly dark black color, with a small head, and not much lacing.

The almond and vanilla come through mostly strongly here in the aroma, as the cinnamon is wisely in the background.

This is definitely a pastryboi's dream, but luckily the base stout itself is really nice too, with a substantial chocolatey flavor, and some coffee. Like the aroma, the almonds and vanilla comes through strongest, with only a touch of spice on the back end.

This is medium bodied and very creamy- it's got a nice decadence to it. It's more drinkable than you'd expect.

I've really, really been enjoying Other Half stouts. They're establishing themselves as one of the better pastry factories in the country now.

Mid Sized bottle, purchased at the source a few months ago

Pours near black, dark tan cap that leaves a fine bubble film and low ringed lacing.

Bold nose that's loaded with milk chocolate notes.

Lucious, complex, heady, soft, smooth,well rounded, flavorful, over the top terrific and delicious.

More milk chocolate, vanilla, nuts, rum and general Impy stout goodness....World class in every way...note to self: purchase more of these nuggets when you have a chance to buy em...

Decanted from a 16.9 oz (500 ml) bottle into a custom conical pint glass; no production information but purchased at the brewery and refrigerated.
A: Pours a near black color with a half inch, brick orange to brass head with modest retention and transient but thick lacing, largely when swirled.
S: Aromas of dark chocolate, orange peel, whiskey, and vanilla initially. Nutty, more macadamia or almonds.
T: Sweet. Flavors follow the nose, although nuttiness very evident as are sugar cane and orange peel sweetness. Bitterness present, but in the background.
M: Full bodied, creamy, rich, and modest, but persistent, carbonation. A bit boozy, though.
O: As billed and yummy. My second stout by Other Half and really, really delicious. Not much more to say.

The perfect single serve stout space odyssey. A deep motor oil pour with a chocolate marshmallow head that melts away into a thin belt of bubbles ringing your glass. Dark chocolate laced with a cinnamon vanilla swirl wash over your taste buds leaving a bittersweet trail of heat. Thinner than expected with Spanish almonds in the nose. Find this beer and blast off.
