Aromoa - smells strongly of malts, vanilla and chocolate, vanilla was most noticeable.
Appearance - pours black coffee dark (into dimpled beer mug) with small browny foamy head that does not retain. Limited carbonation.
Taste - has malty elements but the bitterness is noticeable. Beer tastes more strongly of alcohol than I feel a 6.5% abv beer should, however I don't see this as a bad thing.
Feel - easy to drink
Overall - liked it, was drawn to the beer by vanilla chocolate elements advertised, however this is not my most favourite stout.

The look is very nice. Solid and still after the initial pour that produced a medium, dense, mocha head. Legs are almost non-existent.
I smell some soy sauce. I hate that. Medium/Dark roasted malts and sour milk sweetness. A little sharper smell than an Expedition Stout.
The taste has some lactose, some milk sourness. Dark, chalk chocolate. The stout flavors are laid back. Did it help that I drank a CW Reserve Bourbon Barrel Stout before this.
The feel is not bad. Nothing to complain about, but it lends to the excellence of the overall experience.

Overall - Not bad. I would rather drink a smoother and richer Expedition Stout. I don't know why I compared it to the Expedition, but I did. Chalky, dark chocolate is here.
