look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Very dark brown with a large three finger caramel colored head that slowly shrinks and clings to the glass the entire way down.

S: Espresso and roasty flavors balanced by rich cream and and just a hint of vanilla.

T: Vanilla hits the tongue first but then almost immediately is overcome by dark chocolate and espresso roastiness and bitterness, then the flavors meld.

M: Full, smooth, and creamy with a long bitter finish.

D: Plenty of flavor here for a sub-5% ABV beer. This is good on its on and would be good with food as well. This is a really well done vanilla beer with the vanilla playing a supporting role and not overpowering the beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Poured into a Sam Adams glass, nice full creamy head developed which lasted and had tremendous lacing which lasted through the beer. Appearance was dark deep brown. Aroma was caramel with a malty background and taste was malty with hints of vanilla, almost reminded me of a cream soda. Mouthfeel was more soda like, nothing like you would expect from a stout and aftertaste was dry and sweet.
