3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Cloudy dark red pour with a nice chocolate nose but an artificially sweet flavor, difficult to overcome.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Dark with vanilla aroma. Strong coffee flavor with a little burnt/roasted malt but the vanilla is a little absent in the taste. A little sweet, a little bitter, not bad.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Stone Cellar brewpub. Dark brown with a thin tan head. Holy vanilla, overpowering on the nose with some coffee and roasted malts mixed in. I like. The vanilla in the taste is a little dialed down from the aroma but still pretty strong. Roasted malts and chocolate accompany the vanilla leading to a medium bitter finish. Solid vanilla concoction.

Tastey beer! Pours a thick black colour with a full tan head. This brew made any sort of taste prior to the first sip, vanish immediately. Sweet, enticing creamy and lots of similarites between this and a specialty coffe drink.

On tap at the brewpub on 6/24/07: Pours a mostly opaque with dark mahogany edges and a wispy-lacing dark tan head. Lightly sugary sweet dark caramel and roasted malty nose with some vanilla character. Body starts with some candy sugary vanilla and dark caramel and chocolate malts among foamy carbonation and bitter roasted malt toward a drier, lingering bittersweet chocolate finish. A pretty nice stout.
