A plain beer. Thin and a little watery. There is malt in the aroma and oak in the flavor, but little else in this dark black beer. Simple. hellomynameis (877) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2006
Black with sticky tan head. I am overwhelmed with chocolate and roast coffee flavours. This continues to the flavours with a vanilla aftertaste. This ends up being a bit thin, and really isn’t able to standout from some of the other big stouts. Nejhleader (1574) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2006
UPDATED: APR 7, 2007 tried this again, and i think i had a much better experience. Nice strong vanilla flavor to it. Body was a little too thin, but a nice brew. hippie4beer (162) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JAN 28, 2006
Bottle. Thanks to JIMBOWOOD. Pours black with a thick bubbly tan head that fades quickly. Aroma is roasty and sweet, not much else. Flavor is a little oaky, with hints of malt and chocolate. The finish is the best part of this beer. Finishes roasty, nutty, and this is where you get the vanilla. Body is thin to medium. Average. redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2006
This beer is interesting. On draft at Summits in Sandy Springs, Ga. I gotta say at first not very impressive, while its in your mouth. but give it 1 second, then it tastes like you just swallowed vanilla milkshake! great vanilla finish and aftertaste.

The aroma is kick ass.Lots of roastedness on the nose.Pours almost dark.I didnt taste the vanilla but did get a slight fruitiness tho.Lots of burnt flavors also. xproudfoot (750) - Paleolithic, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2006
Beautiful blackish brown with a tan small head. Aroma of vanilla ice cream, eggnog. Tastes oaky, smoky, full roasted malt, coffee. Bit of a (uncarbonated) cola feel to itwhen cold. Short bittersweet finish. Worthy. jrob21 (3774) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 28, 2005
Such a good beer for so low an alcohol content. My first experience with this brewer and well worth it. Smells of roasted coffee. Tastes of smoke and oak. Finishes with a sweet mesquite flavor. Ungstrup (38246) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2005
A brown beer with a disappearing brown head. The aroma is sweet wtih notes of wood and prunes, while the flavor is sweet and dominated by the wood, but also some roasted notes. But the body is thin. hopdog (12953) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2005
12oz bottle acquired in trade with BuckNaked (thanks!). Bottle labeled, bottled on 18 Nov 2004. Poured a dark black with red at the edges and a large sized tan head. Aromas of vanilla beans, roated malts, oak and chocolate. Tastes of roasted malts, coffee, very light vanilla and very light oak. Body a tad on the thin side.
