A nice dark beer with a creamy tan head. The aroma is a nice roasted malt that has some coffee notes, oats and vanilla. The taste is big roasty malts and oats with chocolate and coffee components and a generous amount of vanilla flavor. This is a really nice stout with a big flavor. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer.

Poured into a snifter. An opaque black color with a thick and foamy light tan head. Great retention and nice tracks in the glass. A nice vanilla aroma with cocoa, milk, and roasted malt. A smooth, milky taste with vanilla up front that was balanced with a nice chocolatey and roasty stout flavor. A creamy and smooth feel. Very nice.

Poured from a 16oz can into a tall glass. Not my ideal, but I'm not at home with my own glasses. Poured a dark chocolate brown with a minimal head and a fair amount of lacing. The vanilla is the first thing you notice, but it's not overpowering. After the vanilla, the sweetness of the milk stout style begins to shine thru. The carbonation is just about right for the style and coats very nicely.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours blackish-brownish-red with a well carbonated but minimal head that soon disappears

Aromas include roasted barley, vanilla, coffee, lactose and a bit of chocolate

Taste is lots of vanilla with roasted barley and coffee. Sweet

Overall it's not too bad of a beer. Just be ready for sweet

Poured from tap into shaker, minimal tan head, recedes quickly, minimal lacing. Dark brownish/black in the glass, no light gets thru. Smells faintly of roasted malt, chocolate, good wiff of vanilla and some lingering roasted coffee. Taste initially semisweet chocolate with a Simi bitter finish, vanilla goes a long way in taming that bitterness. Mouthfeel is standard across all of these variants, a little light, but it rings in at 5 percent so I am fine with that. Easy drinking stout

I remember being very unimpressed by this beer when I had it this past spring, as if it was just an ordinary stout.
