Pours a dark black with light brown head. A coffee and chocolate aroma with a hint of cream. A coffee, chocolate, and malt taste with some cream and vanilla. A dry malt aftertaste. conway (2210) - - MAR 15, 2014
Draft at the brewery. Tough to taste a huge difference between this and the base beer. The vanilla is there but it's very subtle. Not bad. vtafro (7445) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Draft. Black pour with tan head. Vanilla infused aroma with chocolate an roasted pour. Vanilla dominates, light artificial tone, nice roasted tones underlying. pineypower (3347) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Draft at Kane. Pours out the same as the others. Aroma is of cocoa powder, light roast, moderate creamy vanilla. Taste is smooth, light cocoa, roast, nice vanilla bean, some mild bitterness on the finish, this one is tasty. dmac (6438) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Draft at Celebration of the Stout 2013. Aroma of vanilla extract over a strong roasty body, burnt toast with some light chocolate and coffee beans. Flavor is a nice mix between the big burnt malts and the fresh vanilla, the roastiness wins out towards the end however. Nice combo on this one
