Bottle. Pours a dark opaque brown with a big creamy light brown head. Sweet chocolate malt aroma with a light roast overtone. Vanilla is very forward. You can really taste the vanilla in this and to there are some oaky barrel type notes. Very potently flavored, but to me the forwardness of the vanilla is just a bit overpowering. Moderately carbonated and somewhat thin feeling.

0,5l bottle. The "German stadart-type" - interesting that they use it in Maine ;)
The beer is very dark with a nice beige head. The nose is intense and malty-deep. The beer starts viscous, very roasted with hints of Espresso and dark chocolate. The mainpart is slightly sweet but still dry, lots of roasted aroma. But for the deepness and intensity highly drinkable. The aftertaste is great roasted, especially in the end where there come roasted or even burned bread crumb together with slightly sweet espresso-beans or very dark chocolate together with a moderate and well-balamced bitterness. This very great taste stays long on the tongue - but where is the vanilla. I couldnt taste it even when I think about it.
Nevertheless an absolutely great brewed stout! --> 14/13/15/15

Rich and varied aromas and tastes. Very full color that does justice to the robust taste. Everything about this beer is positive. Very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Creedence (287) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 6, 2014
Draught at Atwoods. Pours a deep black/brown, with a thin creamy brown head that dissipates to nothing. Aroma is spectacular for a stout - tons of chocolate, hints of vanilla ice cream, coffee bean, and I detect just the slightest touch of bubblegum? Medium chocolate sweetness with a light super smooth roast bitterness gives this a perfectly balanced no fuss stout flavour. Full, silky smooth, with a chocolatey aftertaste. Absolutely delicious, almost as good as stout gets.

BreWedge (511) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - MAR 2, 2014
1 pt 9 fl oz bottle sample. Pours a slick engine oil black with a big puffy mocha head. Aromas are big rich chocolate and vanilla. Tastes are not quite as sweet as the aromas would lead you to think. Taste is actually a little on the dry/mildly bitter standpoint making you think more of a coffee/dark chocolate/burnt sugar combination, no vanilla. Medium body, slightly chalky with a medium bitter finish. Very nice beer but must admit that were sampling this bottle well after the 90 days recommended the brewer.

Bottle from RobertDale, cheers Bob!! Aroma has notes of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, roasted malts, and a subtle hint of toast on the finish. Nice. Very dark brown that sits black in the glass. Small tan head that mostly diminished and left some lace. Flavor is very sweet and medium/heavy bitter. Palate is full bodied and oily with a soft/average carbonation. Overall a fantastic brew. Nice and complex. Loved it.

Bottle, pours a dark black brown color with a tab head leaving heavy lacing. Very little aroma, slight notes of malt. Maltiness comes through in the flavor, notes of coffee and chocolate. Very pleasant mouthfeel very good stout.
