This pours black with a light tan head that lingers well in the glass.

Smell is butterscotch, maple syrup, vanilla, coffee and a little cake-like. It is much like walking up to a gourmet coffee cart.

Taste is sweet malts, caramel, coffee and vanilla. Medium bitterness in the finish. Extremely rich!

Mouthfeel is full-bodied with light to medium carbonation.

Overall this was good but so incredibly rich that I could never drink more than a small glass.

The beer poured a very dark jet black color with less than 1/2 finger head into a snifter.

Wonderfully prominent aroma: butterscotch dominant, chocolate, and coffee.

The mouth feel was moderately carbonated.

The taste was intensely butterscotch candy, vanilla, and finished with slight bitterness and some hoppiness.

Overall, an excellent beer. It is underrated on this site. The aroma and taste stand out- one my favorites from the brewery. The beer has the strength of a strong stout; it's distinctive candy aroma and taste are finished well with a hoppy bitterness.

Excellent for food pairing. I tasted it with chicken, and a salad with vinaigrette.

Poured into a large snifter glass. The beer pours black with thick light tan head and lots of visible carbonation along the side of the glass. Cracking the cap open revealed tons of vanilla in the aroma. That is the case when the beer is smelled and there's some nice dark chocolate and toffee. This is a very vanilla forward stout. The best description for the flavor is dessert in a glass. The vanilla from the aroma is present in the flavor with chocolate, toffee, and coffee like roastiness. As the beer warms up, it almost tastes like a brownie. The body is full with a thick mouthfeel. The carbonation is moderate. This is an excellent beer. Definitely one of a kind.
