Can. Pours black with a thick tan head. Chocolate, vanilla, molasses aroma. Easy drinking stout with big chocolate malt backbone. A little chalky but finishing pretty clean. Now my favorite from Baxter.

Cool beer from a mixed 12 pack. Cocoa vanilla sweetish stout that is just nice. Baxter actually impresses me the more chances I give them. Finish is lightly sweet and creamy.

From the 12 fl. oz. can marked 10-28-14 on the bottom of the can. I love the deep dark brown to nearly black pour and abundant frothy tan head. The aroma has a a lovely dose of vanilla bean and cocoa as promised. Definitely malt forward. The body is rather thin to medium. The taste is also vanilla based and malt forward with a slight bitterness to follow. This is all over the map but all in all I enjoyed it.

Pretty awesome stout-in-a-can (cans R sexy = bonus points), can taste the cocoa & vanilla, which combine well together here. Seems like this beer is kind of hard to find @ the moment, at least here in northwestern VT... hopefully not for long.
