Very solid oatmeal stout. Sweet vanilla on the front end with a creamy, flaked oat body. Pours a pleasing dark brown to black with medium carbonation. Definitely a good mid range stout in a fairly competitive field.

Draft. Dark mahogany. Medium creamy beige head which mostly lasted and left some good lace. Coffee hits first and foremost. Chocolate. Sweet roasty. Lactose. Vanilla accentuates. Cookies. I want to take a bite out of it. Lighter medium body, fairly creamy. I really enjoyed this.

Sampled at Rapids Liquor tasting. Side by side with non-vanilla, this version is just slightly better. Palate still thin.

Pint can to tulip, black with kaki head, some lace. Vanilla,milk chocolate and light roast aroma. Same in taste kinda what I expected, I wasn’t big on the regular stout but this is a little better than that. Has a bit of wateriness and cola to it but its decent. Im as enthused about it as all the time Ive hestitated to buy it. Finishes kinda flat and undesirable.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2014 Drank the first one out of the can, which was a mistake. The metallic taste overpowered the deliciousness of the vanilla, chocolate, and coffee flavors. Pour this one into a glass and enjoy.

16 oz can. Dark brownish black pour with a thin tan head. Aroma of faint vanilla and chocolate with some bitter coffee present. Fairly thin body for a stout, which increases its drinkability.

Very good! Not too strong of a flavor, no harsh aftertaste. Smooth as silk.

Via trade with Jow. The aroma is vanilla, coffee beans, chocolare, roast. The appearance is deep black, off-white head. The flavor is vanilla, coffee, cream, roast. Medium in body, slightly thin. The finish is a bit weak, roast, vanilla bean. Not bad at all, could use a little more body.
