Can. Pours black with a brown head and nice sweet chocolate vanilla aroma. Taste is delicious, sweet and creamy with tons of vanilla along with chocolate and roasted malt with a sweet, vanilla finish. Very drinkable and tasty sweet stout with lots of vanilla

Dark blackish brown with medium tan head. Aroma is inviting but not powerful, chocolate. Smooth, mellow, like a chocolate milkshake. Tasty!

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
