Headbanger (3360) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 10, 2014
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 (4080) - 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.

The color of this beer is an opaque dark brown color (close to burnt sienna) with a small off-white head that fades quickly. The aroma blends heavy vanilla with undercurrents of roasted malts, coffee, and dark chocolate, and the flavor is very similar to the aroma due to the slight malt bitterness, slight umami, and mild sweetness, the latter of which really comes through in the vanilla-filled finish. The mouthfeel fuses medium-full body, soft carbonation, and slick texture.

bradzukie (3) - Scotts Hill, Tennessee, USA - MAR 26, 2014 does not count
Pours a nice rich dark color. Very little head. Maybe a half a finger. Aroma is real fantastic. Get a lot of vanilla aroma. Drinking it is a little disappointing, not enough stout for me. A decent beer, but something I wouldn’t order again.

Smooth mouth feel, strong vanilla aroma and flavor. Really love drinking these on tap, feel like the aroma and flavor are subdued in the bottle.

SamP01 (582) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Pours a dark cloudy cola brown with a small quickly fading tan head. Aroma is of sweet vanilla beans, dark malt with some roasted notes. Taste is same as taste, has some mild bitterness. Palate is medium body, smooth, sweet. The finish is of sweet mild herbal vanilla bean flavor, a bit of dark roasted malts with light bitterness. Sweet and mildly pleasant. Overall a good after dinner.

EithCubes (5070) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle, screw-top. Nose is airy and lightly fruity, and surprisingly phenol-heavy (bubblegum!) with lighter vanilla and spice. Pours cola brown with a rocky, dense beige head. Taste is very sweet and burdened vanilla, there are some faint notes of roast buried under gingerbread cookies and light pumpkin beer spices. Medium body but a little flat. Way overdone with sweetness and vanilla, hard to crack a smile.

11/18/13 $1.99 bottle from RW. Drank during MNF on my $25 beer game with Luke. Anyway... Dark brown with next to nothing head. The nose is overwhelmingly creamy vanilla maybe a little root beer. The taste is just that ...it's a flat half vanilla creme half root beer. Mouthfeel is thin. I would've liked it to be thicker but then I would've confused it with a milkshake. It's definitely not a bad beer but give it to someone and tell them it's a soda, they'd believe it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
