look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Dark and opaque with a descent, light tan head and moderate retention.

Beautiful aroma of roasted malts and vanilla, sweet in the nose.

Flavor starts with moderate amount of roasted malts, boasting coffee, dark chocolate and wheat toast. This flavor quickly vanishes leaving room for a sweet vanilla extract flavor which dominates up through the finish.

Thin, slick, watery feel. Almost like the malt is not present at all in the finish. Average carbonation.

Not what I'm looking for in a stout. Just needs more roasted malt character and texture.

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. :)
