worldbeertaste (1800) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2011
Solid black with a thick head. Slight stout malt smell, with a sweet light vanilla. Rich and smooth palate, stonger vanilla feel. Sweet as it goes down. Leaves my mouth feeling saturated with a roasted almonds with sugar feel. No heavy taste or bad sideeffects. Usually the biggest hit in in the swallow but this one is light on the finish. Overall very drinkable and very tasty.

12 ounce bottle brought back from Japan by the misses, thanks. Pours a pure black color with a thick beige head, a bit of a gusher. The nose is slightly sour, roasted malts, vanilla, coffee. The taste is nice; vanilla, heavily roasted slightly sour malts, caramel and earthy flavors. Im not sure if the sourness is due to the trip over or intentional. Anyway, pretty nice.

Black color; small head. Cappuccino aroma with a hint of vanilla. Chocolate flavor with light roasted malt; the body is medium strong, leaning on the weak side; there are just traces of vanilla (luckily). Not complex but fairly balanced.

omhper (24085) - Tyres, SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2009
Bottled. Near black, creamy beige head. Roasty ashy vanilla aroma. Sweet with lots of vanilla. After vanilla comes vanilla and then ... more vanilla. Though pleasant at first it becomes overpowering and completely one dimensional.

On bottle. Dark brown with very little tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate with a hint of vanilla. Taste is on the sweet side, but not overpowering. Very smooth and velvety but not too heavy. Very drinkable.

Very dark brown body with tan head. Nose is a bit mild; roasted malts, charcoal, and some sweetness. The tasting is superb; bitter milk chocolate with vanilla extract, roasted finish. Palate is smooth with a medium fill. This brewer is continuing to impress me. Cant wait to try more.

Another recent addition to SGs ever-expanding sweet stout series (Triple S?). Pours a fairly dark brown with a small, but bubbly head. There is a fair amount of vanilla in the nose here...mouthfeel very light, creamy. Taste of vanilla bean, hayseed, caramel milk, sweet breads, hint of almond and a final finish with some bitter notes and some kind of fruity coffee...hazelnut? As a 6.4%, Id say the overall alcohol is hidden very well; although there is a slight boozy feel to it...no complaints with that. Kind of a nice sweet stout, but not something I would return to on a regular basis.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2008 2008 bottle. Creamy, sweet nose of vanilla, coffee, chocolate, and a touch of fruits. Interesting and complex. Black with a frothy tan head. Flavor is sweet vanilla ice cream, with chocolate, cherries, and coffee, and a bit too much sour taste. Slightly thin in the mouth for such a big taste. Interesting, not exactly stout-like. Very nice, complex but maybe a bit too complicated. Strange finish. Much more vanilla in this one. 2007 7/4/7/3/14 Very solid stout base with a vanilla touch to it. Not overly sweet, good roasted dryness under the vanilla. Nice balance. Dont really need the vanilla maybe? Well done, though.

This had little in the way to distinguish from a straight stout, even the vanilla was quite low key. Maybe an old bottle, but didn’t impress

Chocolate and raw vanilla bean right up front with a bit of molasses. Beautiful balck body wit ha light tan oily frothy head like root beer is supposed to have in a cartoon. Restrained sweetness is perfect for the dark chocolates and vanilla bean to come though. The Vanilla is very non-candy like which is a surprising and outstanding quality. Finishes with a nice fleeting herbal bitterness and more chocolate and vanilla extract.
