Thanks to gpugliese for this awesome extra!
A- Obsidian tinge, slight, very slight port shades. Nice firm eggshell head that sticks around for awhile. No lacing, but a solid ring forms and hangs out.
S- Strong vanilla aroma wafts out with a german chocolate hit. Very light coffee note.
T- Lighter than I expected, but still very good: nice and balanced with the malt monster rearing its head immediately and then being tamed a little with hop bitterness. The finish is crisp tasting of light roasted coffee. The vanilla bouquet does not come through in the flavor hardly at all.
M- The feel is medium bodied and crisp. Not chewy, but pleasing.
This is definitely a solid beer, and it is well crafted which is what makes it exceptional.

Poured from the bottle into a MBC ale glass
A: Black as night. Nice edges that resonate light brown/tan. Lacing is minimal. A swirl bring some carbo back to brew. No legs to speak of.
S: Deep black chocolate notes with that vanilla that is touted. Huge roasted notes. Surprisingly, there's some neo-hop notes coming though on the back of this.
T: very balanced for how sweet and hoppy this is trying to be, I have another, I may age it a year and see if the hoppy notes secede. Yeast is mild and some toffee presents, may be yeast notes trying to push it out.
M: Smooth. Roasty like coffee. Not overly full, but not thin. Middle on feel. Malts definitely dominate ultimate out breath.
O: Me likey. May be my favorite flavored stout due to mouthfeel and not overtly chewy malty notes.
