nuplastikk (4268) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2012
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.

Taste like cream soda. I love the vanilla taste. It’s different than any other stout I have tasted

hans4805 (1) - Indiana, USA - FEB 22, 2012 does not count
Bottle. Dark brown with a decent head and little bit of retention. Vanilla and sweet malt in the nose. Medium bitterness, coffee, vanilla, roasted malts. Light to medium bodied. Tasty beer.

BVery (5930) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 1, 2011
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.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
deyholla (6481) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 24, 2011
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.

StefanSD (2068) - Lakeside, California, USA - AUG 15, 2011
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.

bu11zeye (11925) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2010
(Draught) Pours a black body with a medium creamy beige head. Aroma of vanilla, yogurt, chocolate, and roasted malt. Flavor of vanilla extract, roasted malt, caramel, and chocolate.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
arminjewell (5992) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Pours deep brown almost black with tan head, aroma is roasted malt, some coffee, and a nice dose of vanilla. Taste is a touch of roast and coffee up front, leading into a big vanilla middle with a touch of chocolate, finishing a bit bitter and sweet. Very nice vanilla brew, or do I just really like vanilla...either way it was great.

Scubatrip (596) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - AUG 27, 2010
On tap at the brewpub, pours black with small off-wite foamy head. Smells like root beer. Taste is also of root beer, with some vanilla, coffee, and a chocolate finish. Thick and smooth, one of my favorites at the brewpub.

gws57 (1274) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2009
Cloudy dark red pour with a nice chocolate nose but an artificially sweet flavor, difficult to overcome.
