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.

Saranac Vanilla Stout pours a deep, dark brown and is capped by a frothy, one-inch beige colored head. Aromas of oak, roasted malt, and chocolate make quick appearances before the vanilla dominates the nose. The vanilla flavors again dominate the pallet, but in a good way. Flavors of roasted malt, milk chocolate, and a hint of coffee can be found under the vanilla. Interesting and slightly sweet, Vanilla Stout is medium in body and moderate-light in carbonation.
