On tap. Serve a dark brown with a touch of ruby around the edge. Nice tan head and lacing. Aroma of vanilla, malt, milk chocolate and nut. Taste of milk chocolate, vanilla, bit of coffee and nut. Mild bitterness and the finish is quite dry. Fairly full body, thick and creamy. Nice beer for the style

Mouthfeel is a bit lacking, I prefer my "stouts" thicker than water. A lot of vanilla flavor, but my brain registers it as fake. Might be a combination of flavors but somehow it sums to artificial.

Really excellent sweet stout flavor. Vanilla is almost undetectable though. A little watery. Could be a 4.9 beer if the just made more flavorful.

Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago,IL; enjoyed at home while cleaning after a long work day. Appearance is a dark brown with a thin white head. Aroma mostly vanilla with a little bit of chocolate. Taste is mainly vanilla with a bit of lactose, pretty sweet. Not a big fan of this guy.

Pours a translucent dark mahogany with a thick off white head. Aroma is very strong but not in a good way. It’s almost rotten. Taste is very similar but bland with song carbonation in the mouth. Not a good beer.

Overall a great stout. The vanilla flavor is not perfect, but it is still pleasant.

12oz bottle 11/11/14 (Courtesy of TerryR)-42° in English Pint-Pours a dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma of sweetness, vanilla, and malt. Taste of vanilla, malt, chocolate, and hints of coffee. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and has a lot going for it.

vyvvy (4673) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Pours dark brown with a crimson tint and large tan soapy head. The aroma has lots of vanilla, toast, chocolate, more vanilla and is very lush & creamy. It has a medium smooth body with some fairly soft carbonation. The taste starts with lots of vanilla, lightly rough roast, chocolate, hints of coffee and almost and oakiness. The finish has a nice dryness, roast and bit of an earthy hoppy bite. Pretty nice.
