First off, it's really nice to see a vanilla aged stout that hasn't been needlessly aged in whiskey barrels. Seriously.

Poured perhaps a bit too cold into a Lawson's tulip glass. Deep, dark ruby with a chocolate-colored head.

Smells strongly of roasted barley with just a light wisp of dry hops--a regular old American stout, no need for bourbon burn!

Gentle carbonation lends a smoothnes to the front end that is quickly, nicely washed away by burnt barley roughness. This segues into a semi-sweet finish of bakers chocolate, coffee, and fresh vanilla bean.
