djroehler (290) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Pours black with thick creamy mocha head, which disappears into nothing. Smells of roasted vanilla beans, coffee, dark chocolate. Medium light body but very creamy, vanilla, lighter malts, chocolate, cinnamon, finishes in a different way I can’t describe perfectly, almost cereal like, but good.

Can at Paul’s February 2015 tasting. Pours a deep brown with soft white lacing. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side with delicious vanilla bean in the nose and clean malt, vanilla, and chocolate tootsie rolls on the palate.

UrbanCaveman (111) - Ohio, USA - JAN 29, 2015
1 pt can, poured into a snifter at approximately 50 degrees F. Appearance: Pours a deep, dark, bordering on black brown, which pools into the glass as black liquid shot through with carbonation. It forms a thick, fizzy head of tan foam, which rapidly dies away completely, leaving no trace. The surface of the beer bubbles continually in much the same way as a soft drink. Smell: Chocolate and vanilla well out of the glass, wreathed around a backdrop equal measures roasty and sweet with lactose. There’s just enough of a coffee hint to make one think of some ice cream parlor’s go at a cappuccino flavor. Taste: The flavor opens with a twin rush of cocoa and vanilla, buoyed by a remarkable sweetness. Some subtle notes of light coffee emerge through the middle, bringing just a hint of bitterness, and dark fruits swell out of the background towards the finish - raisin, plum, and black cherry. The aftertaste has a mixture of lactose sweetness and something almost ashen, with quickly fading echoes of chocolate and vanilla. Mouthfeel: For a stout, this is rather thin, almost tempting me to use the term "watery", though it never quite gets to that point. There’s definitely an overabundance of carbonation, with attendant fizziness and sharpness. Overall: Thus far, I’ve been in areas where this beer sees distribution twice, and I brought some home both times. It’s a rather refreshing adjunct milk stout, almost what one could term a "session dessert beer" as far as drinkability is concerned. I’m a fan.
