4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer has a very strong, sweet vanilla aroma. There is a little bite at the finish, overall is a really nice v-stout.

A solid vanilla stout. Smooth mouthfeel. Medium to low thickness, kind of thin but in a good way (like all WI stouts) Tons of vanilla.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Stone Cellar. Opaque black, thin patchy head. Interesting overwhelming artificial vanilla flavor, I suppose as advertised. Medium bodied, rather brutal in it’s sweetness. Some chalky chocolate tones but overall pretty one-dimensional. Not sure how this became a staple beer, I’m way more than done after one. Chocolate cola tastes. Not so impressive, it is what it is.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at the brewhouse. Very dark brown/black pour, no head really. Nose is all vanilla extract. Thinner palate. Taste is kind of bland - vanilla is not as strong as it is in the aroma.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a near clear dark brown with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of vanilla that is backed by roasted malts and coffee. Flavor is full of a real nice vanilla note that dominates but is matched by a bit of dark chocolate and roasted malts.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Glass at the brewpub. Pours a nearly opaque black color with a small tan head. The aroma was of over-the-top vanilla and coffee. The taste, like the aroma, featured vanilla and sweetened coffee. The palate was full and smooth. Finished long with lingering vanilla. Overall: Way too much vanilla in this for my taste--this was vanilla bomb. I could not finish it.
