Jow (2264) - New York, USA - FEB 2, 2014

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
tmoreau (2570) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Pint can poured to a shaker at Lunar Brewing Co., with a black/brown color that showed a bit of ruby highlighting at the base, frothy persistence to the billowy, tan head foam, and waves & spots of clingy lacing. The nose was roastiness, expressive Ghiradelli-like, gourmet chocolate, with vanilla bean, not extract, blended in. The taste had a creamy, milk & chocolate nature to it, less roastiness, light to medium body, with low bitterness, and soft carbonation. Would have preferred some better texture, which came off a bit thin, but still liked this stout’s flavorful drinkability.

JustDrinkIt (261) - Arizona, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Dark brown/black pour with abundant light tan head that fades somewhat quickly. Aroma is full of roast, vanilla, and soft notes of coffee and chocolate. Flavor is more of the same, buttery smooth mouthfeel, cardamom and possibly nutmeg.

I like the regular one but the vanilla bean stout is not for me. It tastes like metal top me. Not my favorite but not horrible.
