look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from the bottle into a snifter. Darkish brown with a light tan head, about a finger.

Smell is absolutely wonderful, like a French vanilla coffee.

Taste is kind of a letdown after getting a whiff of that delicious vanilla. It's also a little thin. I prefer a thicker stout.

Overall, it's pretty good. Not great. The first Maine beer I've had that I'm not too interested in having again.
