Pour dark dark brown with a frothy two finger head. The smell is great, fresh ground coffee, roast malt, earthy tones. Taste starters with some ground coffeeness, some bitterness from it. The vanilla isn't as prevalent as I had hoped but you can taste it throughout. This was pretty good, great mouthfeel and smell were what stood out for me. Worth a try. We don't get this in Columbus so I'm glad I got to try it during a trip.

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.
