look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours black, with a light tan head, spotty lacing. Nice, nothing special.

Smell is delicious. Really strong vanilla, actually kinda smells like a creme brulee. It's not super complex, but it knows what it's going for and gets it right. Vanilla, a bit of caramel, some chocolate. Super decadent, great dessert smell.

Unfortunately, the taste doesn't live up. It really just tastes like fake vanilla. It's got the sweetness which is nice, but it's one dimensional and tastes more like a corn-based vanilla substitute than real vanilla. Pretty disappointing, but not altogether unpleasant.

Mouthfeel is fine. Medium thickness, decent carb. Good, but didn't really stand out.

Overall a fine, if one-dimensional stout. The nose is really the standout part of this drink.
