Apparently black body with a small tan head and a little lacing. On holding to strong light some dark ruby red highlights come through.
A little smokiness in the aroma, but the taste is sweet with the vanilla just pushing through a little. The combination of sweet vanilla and the oak smokiness make this a stout with a really good body, but at the same time quite light. As a result its drinkability is pretty high.
Nice lingering , balanced sweet and bitter finish.
Nice example, slightly different, a refreshing change.
