This was new to me. I have never had a vanilla stout before. This was sampled on Super Bowl Sunday 2009 from bottle no. 2698-1040.
Appearance - Very handsome. Dark brown, almost black, with about two inches of puffy beige head in the rounded pint glass. It settles after about 2 minutes.
Smell - Yup, there's vanilla in the scent along with chocolate and a note of hops.
Mouthfeel - Pretty average. Medium body. I was hoping for something creamier.
Taste - The flavor is overwhelmed by the vanilla bean but it's quickly followed by chocolate or cocoa and a hoppy finish. It is actually a rather interesting experience but nothing extraordinary.
