On tap at True North in San Diego.
Pour is essentially black and opaque with a very durable tan head. Fine sticky lacing.
Aroma: Sweet malts with hints of caramel and some fruity and spicy aspects.
Flavor: initally seems like it will be too sweet but soon becomes more balanced. Prudent use of vanilla. Good level of dark roasted grains with only faint burnt toast aspects. Lingering roasted grain flavor with a touch of vanilla.
Feel: Low carbonation is just right. Very smooth. Full body.
O: tasty and recommended.

Light body, light flavor, but the swarthy Belgian yeast provides an interesting flavor. Really dark born in the pint shaker.
This is so dark and roasted, but tinged with the sugar-cookie vanilla note. Zingy and high toned flavors. A great aftertaste with a hint of vanilla and a yeasty bitterish finish. Brewery rates the IBUs at 38, but it barely registers as bitterness. This taste more like some kind of Belgian brew than any usual Stout, but it's not overly charred nor overly yeasty.
A pleasant mouthful of flavor. On tap at Fifty Seven Degrees by Washington Street.

On tap at Toronado in San Diego, CA.
Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, vanilla beans, and cocoa. Taste is much the same with a vanilla flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but the vanilla aromas and flavors seem slightly artificial.
