Nice stout - you get hints of the cacao and vanilla. You get a slowly rising waft of the coffee. Great mouth feel. Above average stout, not earth shattering.

3.7/5  rDev -7.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours black with a generous, fluffy tan head - looks appetizing. Nose is roasted malt with a hint of coffee. Taste pretty much follows suit - big roasted malt flavors cocooned by coffee notes. Slight bitterness from the coffee merges with the bitterness of the hops. A touch of chocolate and vanilla linger in the background. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of creamy, Overall a pretty tasty and enjoyable stout, but as it warms up it has a flavor that I just don't like. Due to this fact I probably wouldn't revisit this.

Edit: This would be much better in a 12 oz format instead of 16 oz. Ive had enough at the 12 oz mark and becomes a chore to drink another 4 ounces.

Big bubbled head that dissipates to nearly nothing. No lace. Dark brown where light cannot get through the edge.

Mostly coffee to the nose. There's some chalkiness as well.

The flavor mimics the smell in a good way with plenty of sweetened coffee. I get a mocha finish. The body is appropriate for the style. The carbonation is slightly high. The aftertaste carbonation features the lingering coffee flavors.

This is an odd one. The coffee notes up front are nutty rather than roasty. Good but not my preference. This was joined by bitter chocolate notes that I liked but didn't necessarily jibe with the coffee or the sweet, milk stout finish.

On draft, in shaker pint glass

Jet black, thin head that fades fast. Nice coffee and chocolate aroma. Taste follows, slightly sweet. Medium bodied, a bit sticky
