A: Black and viscous looking with a frothy khaki head leaving some nice lacing.

S: Caramel, toffee, espresso, vanilla bean, oak

T: Toffee up front, dark coffee bitterness through the middle. Ends with lots of vanilla and creme broulee on the back end. As it warms I get bourbon woodiness that lingers.

M: Medium bodied, not quite what I was expecting. Very smooth though. I was worried I wasn't going to enjoy this as much since we're in the dog days of summer, but it's actually pretty refreshing for a stout.

A very dark color with a thin light brown color head. I have had a more frothy head before, so I am wondering if there is carbonation issues or if time in the bottle effected this. Non-the-less, the Aroma is clearly vanilla and chocolate with a light roasted smell. The taste brings out a light oak flavor with the vanilla and chocolate dominating. Very smooth feel. The vanilla is quite an enjoyable change up for a stout. A thoroughly enjoyable beer that I will certainly have again.
