12 oz bottle. Pours dark black. Aroma of caramel, cocoa, vanilla, touch of earthiness. Flavor of vanilla, cocoa, hint of caramel and sugar daddy candy. ganache (6029) - New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2017
Bottle marked 11/16/2016. Nose malt, roast, light coffee, strong vanilla bean, lactose, sweet caramel. Pour a beautiful dark brown with ruby highlights, tawny middles, black lows; head is large and rocky tan. Taste medium-sweet with low bitterness, really very little bitterness save for the emergence of coffee and deep roast in the finish, lactose and a splash of citrus, very lightly tart, but some really nice malt depth despite low intensity. Stronger cola flavor than I’d like (that’s really what this is, a flatter cola), oily medium body with coffee smack here and there. OK.

On tap. Pours a dark brown color with a tan head. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate and trace of malt sweetness. Taste of vanilla, milk chocolate with bit of roasted malt. Mild bitterness and fairly clean finish. Medium body, smooth with a big vanilla presence as advertised. RobertDale (6755) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAR 29, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Pours dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of chocolate and vanilla. Taste is chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt, and lactose. Decent. gripweed57 (2794) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAR 15, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Pours a translucent cola brown color. Literally no head to speak of. Aroma is roasted malt with notes of coffe and vanilla. Flavor is light coffee and chocolate malt with hints of vanilla and soybean paste. Thin bodied as stouts go. Smooth and easy drinking, but disappointing overall.

Bottle - small tan foamy head, pitch black color, pretty sweet roasted malt aroma and flavor, maybe a hint of vanilla, expected a little more to be honest, still good overall though coachd (899) - Missouri, USA - FEB 19, 2017
Smells strongly of lactose sweetness with vanilla extract and light roast in the background. Dull black color with a tan ring of foam. Tastes very light with the same characteristics as the aroma but much less vanilla. Palate is watery. I am biased towards imperial stouts so I struggle to rate this one objectively. It didn't really do anything for me.

Pour is a very dark brown with a small white head. Aroma is a bakers chocolate with some whipped cream. Flavor has more vanilla than the aroma and I also get more of a bitter chocolate. The problem with this beer is it is lacking a malt presence. It is a bit thin but it has plenty of vanilla flavor as advertised. obguthr (6586) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2017
Mild dark chocolate nose. Cola black, thin tan head. Fairly dry chalky baker’s chocolate, vanilla finish. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation. Not a lot of residual sweetness. Maverick34 (3313) - New York, USA - DEC 26, 2016
Pours a plain dark from bottle. Malty with sweet milk. Moderate bubbles. Pretty good.
