Smooth and smokey with hints of vanilla. If you're looking for heavier notes try Ballast point. Did get the peaty flavor as well. Easy drinking and very light to either have another or step up on the stouts you have in your fridge. Tastes more like a Porter to me based on the lack of heaviness

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high dark tan head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of dark, roasted malts are present in the nose along with some hints of oak.
T: The taste follows the smell, but the roasted malt flavors aren't as prominent and there are stronger notes of oak and vanilla.
M: It feels medium-bodied and yet slightly thin on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I liked the balance of flavors in this stout as you could get equal amounts of roasted malts, oak, and vanilla in the flavors.

Serving type: bottle
