Okay so I support local brewers 110%. This beer did not meet expectations as labeled. I did not detect vanilla. Neither did the person with whom unshared this beer. And is was pricey. 16 ounces of beer for 7.99. A bit watery. Body and no butt. No head retention. It is chocolately. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at brewery with commonmac and rosskyle and samadouche. Black with small off white head. Beautiful chocolate aroma. Taste is amazing. Chocolate, roasted malt, high sugar, very smooth finish and just enough bite. One of the best stouts Iíve had.

Darwenus (809) - Virginia, USA - MAY 5, 2016
Not a strikingly different stout, but a good one. This beer pours dark brown to black with thin, lacy head. The aroma is coffee and deeply roasted malt. Strong coffee on the flavor. If the vanilla is there at all, itís subtle. It isnít sweet, but it is rich and tasty. Creamy mouthfeel.

Taste is light to medium smooth and creamy sweetness with toffee, vanilla, mil chocolate, light bitter finish with dark bitter chocolate, ash and slight earthy tobacco notes.

Nice creamy stout. Good!

polo_marco (227) - milton, Vermont, USA - APR 7, 2016
Smells of coffee chocolate, vanilla and hints of wood. Nice dark black color. Taste starts off with light roasted barley with chocolate notes followed by beautiful vanilla. Coffee comes through after the vanilla then chocolate fudge like finish that tends to linger, very nice. Nice full body with crisp carbonation that falls off after a while then picks right up at the end. Could of incredible for the fizz to do that. One of the best stouts just wish the crispness was continuous throughout and didnít call off but still very Delishous.

Pours a black color with a brown head. Aroma is of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, and molasses. Pretty thick mouthful. Flavor itís similar with a bitter taste that lingers.
