4.3/5 rDev +10.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.
A - Pours a nice darker brown hue with a good creamy one finger light mocha head that fades to leave a thin creamy blanket.
S - Aromas of nice roasted malts, fair amount of vanilla and the sweetness that brings, light chocolate and creamy. Soft caramel, as someone else said this smells a little like a cappuccino.
T - Taste is nice roasted malt followed by LOADS of vanilla. Crazy amount of vanilla that just dominates the mid flavour before going back to darker roasted malts and a touch of chocolate/coffee on the finish with a very very light bitter end. Can't get over how much vanilla is in this beer. Just what I was hoping for from this beer.
M - Mouthfeel may be the weakest part of the beer. Creamy, light carbonation, little thin. Very easy drinking though.
O- Overall, I would definitely drink this one again. Love the amount of vanilla in this bad boy. Quite tasty, just how I figured it would be.

A- Pours a frothy head; I am not surprised because it was poured out of a can, but it is a stout.
S- Kinda bland. Your mediocre mix of malts and barley
T- Vanilla is present. Probably the right amount that the brewer was going for in this beer. Light stout characteristics. A lot of carbonation follows
M- Frothy, and somewhat creamy; not too much. Just a bit. Pretty thin for a stout.
O- I enjoyed this beer. I rated it pretty high. It is outside of my zone, but if I saw a four pack (not sure how they sell it) I would buy one.

4.41/5 rDev +13.4%

A- Pours a very dark brown in color, with lots of red hues peaking through the edges of the body. Fairly sizable, 2.5 to 3 finger head forms and retains very well. Lacing is also very good.
S- Sweet and just a little bit of roast is the best way to describe this beer's scent. Tons of vanilla flavor in the sweetness, as well as a hint of chocolate. Overall, the scent is creamy and sweet, and when all of the flavors combine, it smells a little like a cappuccino.
T- Starts off with just the tiniest bit of dark roasted malt flavor before turning straight into vanilla sweetness. Vanilla flavor dominates the middle half of the drink before giving way to the dark roasted malt flavors towards the end. Slight burnt flavor ends the drink with a touch of bitterness that lingers after the drink.
M- Creamy, light on the tongue, and easy drinking best describes this beer. Body is strong enough to hold the sweet and darker flavors without killing the palate with its weight or alcohol content.
Overall, this should be the standard for sweet stouts. Primarily sweet, yet with some dark flavors thrown in there, all without being an imperial makes this a beer I want to drink several of in a sitting.
