Black, decent tan head. Smells like a Milk Dud, or maybe a YooHoo, with a lot of milk chocolate character. Flavor is a lot of milk chocolate, too, with a good dose of vanilla. Hints of coffee creep in as it warms.

February 13, 2013 - on tap at Royale. Dark brown pour with some head. Vanilla, coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and lactose in aroma and taste. Medium body and not as smooth as I was expecting.

From notes. Had on tap at Schlafly Taproom. Was about halfway between a vanilla milkshake and a great shot of vanilla vodka, but without the alcohol. Aroma was sweet and roasty, with milk chocolate and vanilla notes. Taste follows but the vanilla was more pronounced but not overblown. Chocolate notes as well. Slick and sweet, very true to style. I doubt many will ever have this one, but the ones that do are quite lucky as itís very tasty.

Sampled at HitC. This smelled really sweet and lactic. The flavor is less o of both. Bitterness is very soft. Nice.

Tastes like milk. Dark black. Solid vanilla. This should be served to kids instead of chocolate milk.

seymour (1518) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Tasted at the 1st annual Urban Chestnut - Wolpertinger beer festival in St. Louis, MO, USA from tap into beer boot sampler. Poured a mostly clear dark brown color with creamy, aromatic beige foam and some lace. Smooth, creamy, lots of residual sweetness from lactose and grains, loads of vanilla. Low hops, low carbonation. Medium body, syrupy and chewy. Overall impression was chocolate milk. Too sweet and vanilla-y for me, but unique and well-crafted nonetheless.

It poured dark brown color with a foamy tan head. The aroma was light chocolate and vanilla. The taste was cocoa, vanilla and dry roasted malt. Creamy and dry palate with decent body and carbonation. A very good Sweet Stout.

Pours dark brown with a small off-white head. The aroma has smooth roasted malt, vanilla, lactose, cream, cocoa and a hint of coffee. Medium body that is smooth and creamy with light semi-sharp carbonation. The taste starts off with creamy roastiness, lots of vanilla, and smooth milk chocolate. The finish gets a little crisper with a mild hop bite mixed in. Very nice beer.

(Royale - debut cask) deep black with small tan head. Aroma of roast malt, slightly sweet. Flavor is roasted malt with hints of coffee and chocolate and only a hint of vanilla. Great cask mouthfeel. Outstanding.

Rating #2000: Schlaflyís third collaboration with a local STL bar (Pi and Bigeloís being the first two), this one was with my favorite local haunt, The Royale. This was released on a Tuesday, their regular beer-themed night, and it was a madhouse. I had 2 pints from the cask (which was cashed in just over an hour) and I think 3 on draft. Anyway, it pours a deep, dark, cloudy cola brown color with a small tan head- no head on the cask version. Aroma of vanilla, cream, milk sugar, roasted malts, and faint coffee. Flavor was mostly the same- vanilla, cream, milk sugar, roasted sweet and barley malts, brown sugar, and faint coffee again. The coffee note is coming from the rich vanilla beans, and Iím told they didnít skimp on those beans, and went for the highest-quality ones available. Whatever they used gives in a nice, smooth character that in no way resembles the extract kind of vanilla you find in many other vanilla beers. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a very smooth mouthfeel. Another great Schlafly collaboration beer, and come get it at The Royale or either of Schlaflyís breweries while itís still available.
