3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Radio Maria in Champaign. Deep copper brown, average light tan crown. Aroma is reminiscent of Kahlua, with sweet vanilla and chocolate. The flavour is pretty much Cocoa Puffs cereal in liquid form, but not in a bad way if that makes any sense. Very tasty!

My beer of the day at ABC! Pours Pitch black/dark brown in the light. Finger of creamy head that dissipates quickly. Nose is very roasty and chocolatey. Vanilla is also present. Mouth is awesome. Chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. Very creamy and roasty. A lot vanilla in the taste. This was a pleasure to drink. Surprised it gets such low ratings.

Pours black with a tan head and sweet aroma of vanilla. Taste is sweet, a lot of vanilla throughout, creamy, soda like, with light caramel and malt and a medium, vanilla finish. Very light, drinkable vanilla stout

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark and opaque black, with no head. Nose is sweet vanilla bean with a hint of roasted mocha coffee. Taste is pure sweet vanilla and tickles my taste buds......almost like drinking a cream soda. Finishes with what else but vanilla. Light and very drinkable. Quaff Score 8 / 10

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark brown pour, dark tan head. Vanilla, cocoa, some artificialness brings this one down. Is that a word? Lactose, fake vanilla, odd chocolate.

Aroma is Vanilla, hazelnut, coffee. Thin looking, with a small white head. Black color with a hint of some brown. Taste is more vanilla. Lacking some carbonation, but a smooth aftertaste. Sweet ending...think brown sugar. A nice beer...definitely a large notch ahead of Leinienkugels vanilla porter.

Pours dark brown with tan head. Aroma has some roast, vanilla. Taste is semi sweet and..... weird. Not sure what it is but this is not good.

This pours a dark brown color with a foamy, light brown head. The scent is mildly malty with hints of vanilla. The texture is thin yet a little creamy. You can definitely taste the vanilla in the flavor. Itís kind of like a vanilla cream soda with deeper robust flavors. Fairly decent as itís better than some vanilla beers on the market but Iíve had at least one other beer that was better with its use of vanilla. An easy find for me, but I guess they are a smaller operation.

Ehhh, nothing Earth shattering here. Pours cola, with a small tan head. Aroma is mostly caramel / vanilla. Taste is sweet, vanilla syrup, almost like coke. Rather thin, light carbonation with a sweet sticky finish.
