Really good stout!! Nice tan head with good lacing, at first taste you get brown sugar and vanilla bean with a slight hint of cinnamon which melds nicly into strong bourbon, coffee, and molasses. The vanilla carries over to the end as a nice even note. one of the best local beers for 2016 River City really got it right!

I had this beer on-tap in a pint glass at the brewery.

Appearance: black hue with a thin layer of tan foam. Not enough head, but nice.

Smell: rich, chocolatey, malty aroma. Very good indeed.

Taste: chocolatey and vanilla-ey, but without a ton of other depth. Not bad, but not complex.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: a decent enough sweet stout, but it's a bit one-dimensional. I would not want a ton of this.
