Great vanilla and coffee aroma, similar taste a bit milder on the vanilla side, good beet!

A dark opaque beer. Malty. Aroma of vanilla with a slight bitterness at first but strong malt finish. Heavy drink. Good for sipping over a fair amount of time, not to be rushed. Supposedly cocoa flavors - I suppose so; that taste is coffee-sequel but not coffee. Earthy yes. Spicy no. Definitely take your time. Smooth mouth feel with no lingering aftertaste. Food flavors will come through this beer, not overpowering.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - JUL 28, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2014 Tap: Almost black body with darker brown edges, a bubbly khaki collar outlining the top of the beer. Aroma is quite nutty with lots of cacao backing it up. Light vanilla, but far too light for a "vanilla" milk stout. Aroma is mostly a dry, nutty roasted malt profile with a moderate creamy sweetness undertone, actually. Taste has lots of coffee bean, kind of surprising but okay. Lots of dry cocoa dust, too. Big roasted malt character with a bold, toasted nutty presence throughout. Again, faint vanilla - but it might just be suggested from the moderate creamy profile of this milk stout. For a stout will vanilla in the name, it needs to be heavier. Light bodied, a touch silky. Still a decent stout, but slightly misses the mark of its moniker.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 30, 2013
On tap at the Mitten brewpub. Clear dark brown with ruby lowlights and a thin layer of foam atop. Aroma is up front vanilla with some dark roasted malts underneath. Chocolate, peanuts and a hint of sugar round out the nose. Taste is on the sweeter side with dark roasted malts, chocolate, lactose and plenty of vanilla.

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Draft at The Mitten, Grand Rapids. Deep opaque brown body with orange highlights, medium creamy beige head. Bitter, roasty nose with vanilla bean. Light roasty body, a tad woody, with vanilla bean and a moderate acidic bite. Not bad.

Tap. Near black with small head. Nice milk stout. Lightly sweet. Not much if any vanilla.
