1stRndDraught (10) - Birmingham, USA - APR 30, 2013
An improvement to an already good beer. The vanilla edition tastes like it should in the first place imo. The added vanilla really brings out the sugar note that make cream stouts so enjoyable. Still not quite at 5 star status, but if you run across a 4-pack of these itís well worth the buy.

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 canít get past the vanilla.

Beerman6686 (4975) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2015
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.

BeerInHeaven (210) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 15, 2015
pours an opaque brown/black with a thick brown head. Great lacing. Aroma is malt, chocolate, vanilla, and black coffee. Vanilla comes through in the taste. Along with a little chocolate and coffee. Nice semi-sweet finish. Great sweet stout! Good beer!

heemer77 (5145) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Can. Deep black body with a light brown sugar colored head. Nose of lightly roasted coffee and dough. Hints of nuts and a very light vanilla are present. The flavor is again, lightly roasted coffee with some milk chocolate. Vanilla is barely present. An ok beer, but I am not sure how it improves on the original. Smooth and light.

dmac (4434) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Can shared at the FF tasting. Poured a deep dark brown, almost black, with a smaller foamy beige head. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate cake mix, dry dark bread and Tootsie Roll chocolate. Flavor unfortunately is not as good as the aroma, still nice though. Notes of bread, tonic water, chocolate on the end and some vanilla muffins. Fizzy watery body with a quick fading aftertaste.

Dogbrick (8950) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2015
This brew pours a brownish-black color with a medium tan head that recedes steadily to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of chocolate malt, vanilla and mild coffee. Light-bodied with flavors of roasted malt, vanilla, cocoa and coffee. The finish is roasty with a vanilla coffee aftertaste. Decent overall.

Can at Paulís 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.
