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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Mild dark chocolate nose. Cola black, thin tan head. Fairly dry chalky bakers chocolate, vanilla finish. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation. Not a lot of residual sweetness.

Finhead (1688) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - DEC 12, 2016
Nearly black pour with reddish edges and a tan head. The aroma vanilla and milk chocolate. It has a medium body with creamy texture and average carbonation. The taste is sweet with a lip-smacking finish.

douglas88 (8749) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 9, 2016
Bottle thanks to Greg. Pours a pitch black color with a small white head. A big sweet roasty chocolate nose. Big vanilla, chocolate, caramel, a dark fruit roast element that is great. Not over the top lactose or vanilla which is great.

Terminus (3634) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 8, 2016
Tap at brewery pours black as expected with a small soapy tan head and great lacing. Noseis vanilla chocolate and some light a shy burnt notes. Flavors exhibit the vanilla and ash but this is good. Very mild sweetness maybe baking chocolate. Body is crisp and lite and low abv. Finish has lingering vanilla and ash. On par for this style.

Draught. Sweet, thick and viscous. This is a nice deep stout with lots of roasting and low hop bitterness.
