look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Black with a very thin, mocha-colored head that dissipates quickly, leaving lots of lacing.

S: Very malty with notes of spice and alcohol, which is odd considering the relatively low alcohol content of 4.7% abv. The titular vanilla doesn't quite come through from the smell alone.

T: Ah, there's the vanilla! It's nice and strong- compliments the dark maltiness quite well.

M: Smooth and thick with light carbonation.

O: Very good! I'll absolutely be drinking more of this.
