4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Great vanilla nose, solid, clean, and full of vanilla flavor. Jet black with a nice ring of head. Hints of chocolate and roasted malt but not too much. Nicely balanced. Could drink this all winter long...yummy!

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
