12 oz bottle courtesy of fthomasl pours a very viscous black with a small cap of mocha head. Average retention and lace.
Nose is coffee, chocolate, black licorice, herbal hops and alcohol...kind of a strange brew of everything thrown together. Kind of a mess, really. And where the fuck is the vanilla?
Tastes like old Folger's coffee grounds mixed with vodka. Ugh, maybe this is a bad bottle? I dont know but whatever it is is not working right. The viscosity would be appreciated if there was some good flavors here, but this is just a complete mess.

Bottle opened on 10.7.13
A - Pours a very dark brown with a light brown smaller head with good retention.
S - Oats, coffee, then strong vanilla.
T - Vanilla hits hard at first, then roasted oats and coffee with a bitter finish.
D - Heavy body with a lower carbonation.
O - Flavors are all there, but still not very good. Fake tasting to me.

Bottle from some shop somewhere...I forget.
Black color, opaque, with a small tan head that receded to a small collar, leaving dots of lacing on the glass. Lots of roast in the aroma, coffee, dark malts, cocoa. Taste was similar, big time roast, dark coffee, dark malts, dark chocolate, charred wood. There was really no vanilla to speak of. It was good as a coffee stout, but I expected more of a "vanilla shake" from a beer called "Vanilla Shake." Medium-full body, roasty-bitter mouthfeel, lower carbonation. Booziness was relatively low for a 13% brew, making for a good drinker. Overall worked pretty good as an imperial coffee stout, but with no vanilla in there, it was a let-down.
