COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unfiltered dark ale with large doses of chocolate and roasted malts along with five other barleys round out this once a year treat. Sealed with a kiss of vanilla. It's a BEER! NO.. It's a DESSERT! NO.. It's YUMMY!!

notes from 3/10/08: on tap at brewpub. Pours a dark brown. Aroma is of intense vanilla, maybe some roasts but not much more. Flavor is sweet of vanilla, cream and sugar. To be honest, this tasted like a light-bodied stout mixed with vanilla coke. I didn’t appreciate the one-sidedness of this brew, nor its soda-sweetness. I suppose that if you are looking for a DESSERT drink this could be the right play, but certainly not what I was expecting from a stout, sweet or otherwise.

on draft at brewery, NOOOOOOOOO that beautiful just stout is ruined! But a "touch" of vanilla, way too much vanilla, maybe im just too sensitive to it but this one was overwhelming vanilla that unfortunately sweetened the finish.
