Sampler at Trepanier Backyard in Fond Du Lac. Big choco/vanilla. Quite sweet. More of a porter than a stout. Very tasty. 14

That1Guy (2192) - Colorado, USA - MAR 30, 2016
12 oz bottle. Pours black with a brown hue when put to the light with a tan head that is gone immediately. Vanilla, DMS, bit of chocolate. Needs more carb. It’s aight.

koleminer20 (2413) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - SEP 11, 2015
From notes. Enjoyed at the Great Taste of the Midwest on August 08. At this point, I’m not going to lie, we were just trying to drink until they threw us out. The pour on this was a medium dark color with a few shines of ruby or garnet and a smaller, light khaki colored head that disappears quickly. The aroma is roasted malts and a touch of cocoa. The vanilla is present, but it’s definitely light, and not at the forefront which, for a vanilla stout, is definitely misleading. This should be so much better. The flavors are the same. There is a creaminess here with the malts and a light cocoa presence. The vanilla is less present in the flavor than it is in the nose, which is just a bad sign. The mouth feel is thin and light, with a decent carbonation, but a watery complexion. The aftertaste is lingeringly roasty with a little cream in there. I’d hoped for a lot more.

Ratman197 (13100) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 16, 2015
Bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lingering ring of tan foam. Aromas of roasted malt, bakers cocoa, vaniila extract and a hint of coffee. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of bakers cocoa, roasted malt and vanilla extract with a smooth lingering cocoa vanilla finish.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - APR 1, 2015
This beer pours a very, very dark brown color with a small khaki-colored head, and the aroma blends vanilla (which nearly overpowers the nose), chocolate, and a hint of roasted malts. The taste is slightly umami and mildly sweet with a strong lingering vanilla flavor with only a touch of roast in the aftertaste; overall, the flavor is lackluster when compared to the aroma. The palate fuses a light body, slick and thin texture, and a soft carbonation.

tmoreau (3628) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Shared 12 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a clear, ruby highlighted, dark brown, almost mahogany color, with a light layer of off white foam that reduced quickly to a thin ring & film, and left some light spots of lacing. The aroma was an expressive nose of roastiness, covered by chocolate, vanilla, and syrupy sweetness. Very dessert-like! The flavor, on the other hand, was a disappointing, minimized version of the nose offered to the taste buds, with a little spritz to the carbonation, thin texture, and light body. Inoffensive, but a bummer!

arkurzynski (2220) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Dark brown to black pour. Cocoa and powdery roasted malt with cream. Flavor is gentle roasted malt and chocolate with a light cream/vanilla finish. Lingering espresso and cream. Thin body. Very drinkable.
