Pours brown with a tan head. Smells of vanilla, chocolate and earthy with some peppery splashes. Tastes of vanilla which almost smacks you in the face before giving way to some chocolatey undertones. A little over the top on the sweetness even for the style. elihapa (1553) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAY 13, 2008
notes from 3/10/08: on tap at brewpub. Pours a dark brown. Aroma is of intense vanilla, maybe some roasts but not much more. Flavor is sweet of vanilla, cream and sugar. To be honest, this tasted like a light-bodied stout mixed with vanilla coke. I didn’t appreciate the one-sidedness of this brew, nor its soda-sweetness. I suppose that if you are looking for a DESSERT drink this could be the right play, but certainly not what I was expecting from a stout, sweet or otherwise.

on draft at brewery, NOOOOOOOOO that beautiful just stout is ruined! But a "touch" of vanilla, way too much vanilla, maybe im just too sensitive to it but this one was overwhelming vanilla that unfortunately sweetened the finish.
