3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour on tap at Happy Gnome, dark brownish pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of nice cocoa, roast and vanilla bean into some coffee, earthy, grassy notes with a hint of fruit. Taste was a mix of cocoa, roast, coffee into nice vanilla, caramel into a bit of grassy notes, finishing fairly sweet, slightly roasted.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Bottle shared at Max and Andy’s Tasting, 2/28/15
Aroma: Strong malt aroma, vanilla, chocolate, dark malts, roasted notes, mild smoke
Appearance: Dark brown color with a pretty decent sized, foamy, light brown colored head on it
Flavor: It has a fairly sweet flavor, good mix of vanilla and chocolate, some coffee as well
Palate: Has a smooth and clean mouthfeel, drinks rather nicely, medium bodied
Definitely a solid beer. I enjoyed the overall feel of this one. Gets close to being cloying, but somehow steers clear and remains a tasty beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Opaque brown. Minimally sized beige head with little retention. Roast and dark chocolate dominate the aroma with little vanilla. Initial flavour of roast and dark chocolate slowly coalesces with sweet vanilla and a relatively dry finish. Minimal hops as well. Not as amazing as I had anticipated.

16 oz. can. Very dark black, thin white head. Aroma is luscious! Rich roasted malt, deep vanilla and sugar. Chocolate candy bar and vanilla bean right up front with a lactose sweetness that lingers after the sip. The body of the stout is pretty nice with a nice creamy feel.

Dark with a beige head. Aroma is almost all vanilla. Light cocoa, too. Flavor is much the same with a load of sweet malt and vanilla. I really can’t get past the vanilla.

This poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma was of.nice fresh vanilla bean, light milk chocolate and mild fresh. Flavor was incredibly smooth like a swirl milkshake with alcohol and coffee grounds spread throughout. A really nice simple sweet stout.
