3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at the BWW. Very dark brown/black pour, with minimal head. strong scent of vanila. Quite underwhelming, palate was quite poor and flavor had nothin very distinct. Vanilla didnít exist in the flavor like it did in the nose.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Black in color with a decent sized beige head. Aroma definitely has vanilla with some roasted malts, and chocolate notes. Taste has the vanilla as well, but it is balanced well with the bitterness of the roasted malts so that the beer is not offensively sweet. The taste profile also includes notes of milk chocolate and coffee.

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 itís sweetness. Some chalky chocolate tones but overall pretty one-dimensional. Not sure how this became a staple beer, Iím way more than done after one. Chocolate cola tastes. Not so impressive, it is what it is.
