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!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Black pour, with a big, foamy, tan head. Nose is strong vanilla, butterscotch, light coffee, and pecans. Cloying sweetness, with a touch of bitterness. Medium body, syrupy, and a little acerbic. This is a pretty nice beer, with a ton of vanilla. The vanilla is nice, but the base stout is lacking.

Wanted to like this more than I did, but itís just too sweet and too much vanilla. Not terrible, just mediocre. Little thin, smell is meh.

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.

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. Itís 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.
