Poured from a 22oz bottle, this beer is a root beer brown, looks more like a porter than a stout if that really means anything. Carbonation leaves a small white head that quickly reduces to a thin ring around the glass. Smell is alot of roasted malts, familiar sweet "milk stout" nose, sadly I'm not getting a lot of vanilla.
Has a nice roasted malt flavor, a bit of sweetness and the vanilla flavor tries to come out a bit midway but never really makes it for me, the finish is a bit of bakers chocolate and is bitter and drying.
I was hoping that the vanilla would be right up front since it says VANILLA in huge writing, but then again it also says STOUT really big and o'well...It tastes like some of the vanilla porters I have had but with less vanilla and more roasted malt flavor. I really wanted to really like this one, but I only moderately liked it. It's worth a shot for the price, but don't expect a thick bodied vanilla flavored stout, because it isn't one.

This is a great , easy drinking dark brew. Pours a nice dark brown, very bubbly. You could almost mistake for a glass of coke lol. The head is super thin maybe a 1/4"very light colored. It has a pleasant vanilla smell but it's very light. The taste is very light and refreshing. A nice light vanilla taste but not super sweet and over bearing. Very easy drinking. If your looking for a very full bodied, intense, and interesting beer this isn't it but it is great to sip and i'd buy it again. It's not as complex as many of the beer styles I purchase but sometimes a nice easy drinking beer is called for. :)
