16.9 oz Growler Bottled March 8, 2013 (Thanks to Kyle BREWSnTATTOOS for the trade) poured into a Huna snifter. Yes, I drank the whole thing by myself.

Appearance: Nearly black with a nice small tan head of about 1/4" that quickly recedes to a thin cap. Another heavy stout that clings to the glass with thick legs.

Smell: The vanilla bean leaps out of this beer with an obvious rich and complex aroma lying underneath. It is very unique (which is an understatement), not just a pure Vanilla smell but an almost wine like aroma working within a rich chocolatey base. As the beer warms in the glass the vanilla recedes more and more allowing much more chocolate through, it just seems to smell better and better over time.

Taste: Following the nose, rich chocolate, roasted malt, hints of rum, molasses, all wrapped in a wonderful cloak of vanilla. This beer evolves dramatically as it warms in the glass, it nearly transforms over time. I nursed this beer, at first the vanilla was extremely dominant, verging on overwhelming, then as it warmed the vanilla receded bit by bit allowing the molasses and chocolate to come forward in a big way.

Mouthfeel: Rich and creamy "start to finish" but pleasantly never becoming cloying or overpowering in any way.

Overall: The best barrel aged stout I have ever had the chance to try. This is one beer that is wasted if you only have a small pour, you must have enough to allow the beer to change in the glass over time to appreciate. Frankly, if you like Vanilla in a Barrel aged stout then this is near perfection. I've never had Vanilla Dark Lord or BCBVS but it's hard to imagine either exceeding the level of excellence achieved by Nooner.
