Smells nice and dark with some dark fruity notes. Taste is more bitter than I like. Surprisingly it taste a little thin too. Not great.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A little light in color, body and complexity for my tastes. Medium to dark brown w khaki head, body of a smaller beer. Vanilla prevalent with hints of coffee chocolate and caramel but pretty simple. Tasty enough, but not much going on. One timer

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lighter weight and not so bitter stout. Not getting any of the coffee, but a hint of chocolate malts. Dark brown, but not opaque. Small head, very un-stoutlike. Dark chocolate bitterness on the finish.

Fresh 12 oz can (canned on date of 27 May 2014).
Large foamy beige head over a dark, clear, nearly opaque brown body. Superior retnetion and lacing.
Feel: creamy and foamy like a good rootbeer float. Medium-full body.
Flavor/aroma: Vanilla is clearer in the aroma but present throughtout tasting. Slightly sweeter than average, but excellent bitter/sweet balance.given the vanilla.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Stateside Craft, Vancouver
Black color with creamy beige head. The aroma is mild. The mouthfeel is lean and soft; it has some chocolate flavor, light roasted malts, light oxidisation; correct bitterness.
Good beer, more Imperial Mild than Stout.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from Ezo Beer. Served in a snifter. Plum, vanilla, roasty, chocolate, cream soda in the nose. A fairly light body with a somewhat silky mouthfeel. The taste is roasty dark malts wrapped up in vanilla with a definite cream soda vibe coming into play. A fairly unique stout, decent. That hefty dose of vanilla makes it come across fairly sweet. Pair with chocolate or vanilla ice cream.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black pour under a thick foamy light beige head. Nose is creamy sweet with some cocoa notes and a touch of brown sugar. Big flavor but largely one dimensional, with some sweet earthy cocoa, creamy lactose tones and a kiss of vanilla macadamia.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Pours a near-black color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose is dark and roasty, and seems to have a bit of sour fruit elements to it. Taste actually comes up slightly sweet, and tastes like sweetened coffee with cream. OK, but not my sort of thing.
