A dark brown beer awaits after the pour with a low tan head. The aroma is dark chocolate with a little biscuit, oatmeal and just a hint of vanilla. The flavor has the same aspects as the aroma. The vanilla adds a little complexity, but the finish is drier than expected for this style – possibly exacerbated by the vanilla. There is bitterness from the roast and a little earthiness from the hops. The body is a little thin but still manages to keep a slight creaminess through the aftertaste. If not a complex sweet stout, this is a very well made and straight forward beer. Very easy drinking and enjoyable.
