A- Deep brown with a tan head. Nice lacing all the way down the glass.
S- Strong vanilla bean straight up, almost as though a dash of vanilla extract had been added to a milk stout. Very appealing, not "imitation"
T- Right up front, the vanilla is very strong, but there aren't a lot of off flavors from the sugars. Nice malts balance it out, even though my first instinct was to say that it tasted like a vanilla milkshake.
M- Creamy. Rolls across the tongue.
O- Yum. Almost a desert porter.

Nice malt mixed with faint vanilla bean. It is an easy mix with malt, some roast but none of the acidity.
The aroma is the first thing you notice as the malt and vanilla pop out of the bottle. The pours is a maple syrup color that is an opaque mahogany in the glass.
Taste is dominated by the vanilla intially but as it warms the vanilla actually moves into the background. The color also does not hold as this thins, ending a light amber, though the lacing has remained until the end.
Good mouthfeel, very good carbonation. Crisp at the end despite the vanilla there is no cloying or lingering sugar.
Really enjoyed this.
