In high hopes for this beer died as soon as I poured it. The head was almost non-existent, had almost no aroma, and tasted very gland in general. Got better as it warmed up, but not at all the beer that it surely would like to be. I didn't detect even the slightest hint of the vanilla beans that were mentioned, and that was possibly the most interesting part of the description.

Had this on tap at Dulles Airport. From notes.
A - Black pour with one finger of creamy tan head. Good carbonation coming up. Spotty lace and a half finger of retention.
S - Cola, sugar, sweet dark malt, some chocolate.
T - Roast, chocolate, sweet mostly. Not too much going on.
M - Very smooth, mild carbonation, medium body. Nice.
O/D - Fairly drinkable. Not sure where the smoke or barrel are, but it wasn't too bad. Scored lower because it lacks what it advertises.
Serving type: on-tap

I really like stouts, and this has been one of my favorites for a couple years now. I picked it up at Martin's this time.
A- Can't see through it, and it pours a great looking 1' froth.
S- Nothing crazy here, just a hint of vanilla like the bottle advertises.
T- A great, smooth taste that hits you with that vanilla flavor. It's so smooth but still has that roasted flavor of a stout.
Overall, like I said before it is one of my favorites, and it's always easy to find here in Virginia so I pick it up pretty often.
