Nice vanilla hit...I love stouts and this has an exciting difference that definitely makes me want to drink more Oakes (19010) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2017
Medium brown. Thin head. On the nose, maybe light chocolate and vanilla. Sweet but bland palate, thinnish, not enough sugary richness to carry the artificial vanilla notes. If you're making dessert beer, you cannot skimp on the richness. It simply doesn't work. sulawang (1202) - - DEC 4, 2017
Visual: Pours dark brown without much of a head, thin ringed retention w/ half island, several slow micro streams. Crit (4065) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2017
Nose: chocolate, vanilla sweet malt (lvl-8)-intensity
Attack: crisp-tingly, nutmeg
Mid-palate: toasted liquid barley malt, (lvl-5-sweetness), mild milky, chocolate malt
Finish: soft roasted bitter, vanilla extract, lingering bittersweet malt
Summary: A prominent but dull spice presence; The vanilla flavour is rather basic and tastes of the inexpensive extract variety. The malt backbone lacks length and carry but the overall spice + malt combo is at least drinkable, although not the least bit memorable. It has a bit of lingering and compounding astringency - this beer doesn't taste at all like a s'more.
Tap at Brewery Gerbeer (4048) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2017
A very poor looking beer...Black, fast fading beige head. Very sweet nose. Sweet palate, light roast with espresso notes
650 ml bottle. Pours a dark brown with moderate head. Aromas of sweet vanilla, marshmallows, chocolate syrup, and tinny roasted malts. Thin flavours of same. Really needs a bigger malt base.
