I LOVED this beer. It was pretty thin and drank more like a session stout, but the nose and taste was spectacular. Really strong notes of vanilla and coffee throughout. Very enjooyable and drinkable.

Poured from a tallboy into a glass. Nice dark body. Sweet slightly roasted aroma. Tasty beer. some notes of coffee and chocolate with a lot of vanilla flavor.

poured 16oz can into pint glass.

A - Deep black with two fingers of khaki head that fades into a plump cap. Big blobs of lacing on glass.

S - Vanilla is the star here with notes of roasted malts and sweet, milk chocolate and hints of caramel.

T - The Vanilla is mellow and allows the milk chocolate, cocoa, and cream from the stout to come through. Roasted malts, caramel and some malted milk on the finish.

M - Medium body with a velvety feel and ample carbonation.

O - Very tasty sweet stout that does not overdue it. The 16oz can is a cherry on top of this great dessert beer.

I received this one as a trade extra. Wow! Thanks man! This is totally solid!

Appearance: Not as dark as some stouts there is a little transparency in this stout but considering the abv. I don't think that is a major issue.

Aroma: Nice vanilla caramel and roasted malts. This smells like a whopper! Its has a very nice aroma.

Taste: Very clean and appealing, this is a sessionable stout. I love the vanilla notes and like the aroma its like drinking a whopper but not overly sweet. This is a very nice beer. I totally enjoyed this one and I hope my number reflect that.

Overall: Seek this one out if you want something that is sweet and enjoyable but definitely not cloying. Very cool beer. Thanks so much for sending this one as an extra!
