pitch black pour that seems to absorb everything with a dark brown lasting head. the aroma doesnít hint at what wits here, just a bit of chocolate and light vanilla. flavor jumps out all over the place. roast at first then the smooth vanilla and chocolate all over. vanilla finish. very silky, another decadent gem on my mini vacation. a little buttered danish flavor to this too. there is a lot working in this. brownies and hershey syrup. iíd freebase this if i could. great coffee notes, nothing subtle about this. damn.

Very sweet vanilla candy smell. Dark body. Sweet delicious taste. Very good stout. Our favorite beer from them.

Dark beer with a creamy tan head. You could definitely taste the vanilla in it. I liked it better than their Stone Cellar Stout.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2007 Black Coloring with Espresso Ring. Nice Light Roasts and Rich Vanilla Aroma. Wonderful Promise for the Tastebuds. Mouthfeel Thin to Start - Then Rich Malt and Dark Chocolate, Bit Dry Like Bakerís Chocolate, Light Roasts and Wonderful Vanilla Overlay. Finishes with a Dry Afteraste. WONDERFUL Winter Stout. Please Make More! Retried in Winter of í07...Vanilla and Roast Notes Are Still There, But the Malty Body You Would Want to Balance Out the Vanilla Just Isnít There.. Still a Nice Brew But a Beefier Version Would be Nice to Try.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 2, 2006
Draught sample at the brewpub, early October 2006. Completely opaque with a bit of lasting head topping the inkiness and good lacing (exactly the same as the regular stout, they both sat for an hour before I got to them and looked identical)....gorgeous, well-nigh transcendant nose for vanilla lovers, the sweet beans deepen quickly into a caramel-nougat character with milk chocolate, faint hints of licorice and subtle underlying toasty malts giving joy to all sweet-stout lovers....the flavor profile is nearly as full and complex but not balanced as well I think, the roastiness quickly taking over the soft spicy vanilla-oaky tones, the touches of licorice anise and orangy citrus are quite muted....at the finish a severe espresso burn hammers me, at that point I wonder, balance, who cares about balance? Carbonation is low to moderate, very natural, never forced or fatiguing. Overall, terrific.

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.

This beer has a very strong, sweet vanilla aroma. There is a little bite at the finish, overall is a really nice v-stout.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2007
Last stop during Wisconsin Tour #2 was at the brewpub off Oneida. Pours an opaque very dark brown with an off white/yellowish head. Lacing is very good. Aromas picked up are multi-grain bread, bakerís unsweeten chocolate, oatmeal and (of course) vanilla to the extreme. Hop presence is hard to pick up but it was more sweet hops than bitter hops. Taste is smooth with some roasted grain finish. A very interesting brew but worth picking up a 64-oz growler.

Fresh from the Stone Cellar Brewpub. Pours a dark black with a long lasting dark golden head. Aroma of roasted coffee and vanilla. Tastes of roasted coffee, vanilla, chocolate, and grain. Good stout.
