Adam's StoutAdam's Stout
Notes: Vanilla stout that starts off by combining our favorite dark and roasty malts and then aging with vanilla beans in the tank. Medium body with hints of coffee and caramel with a subtle vanilla finish. Named after an old homebrewer friend, Adam’s Stout is great for sipping anytime.

Appearance: Pours a translucent fudge brown color and a hard pour builds only half an inch of foam; nice, spotty lacing, though

Smell: Light roast, chocolate, coffee and vanilla

Taste: Light roast and chocolate, up front, with coffee tones developing; a touch acrid, after the swallow with a hint of vanilla appearing, in the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with low to moderate carbonation

Overall: Despite some of the previous rating disappointments, I rather enjoyed this beer; a nice one for watching March Madness

Thanks, BerBen, for the opportunity

Not one of the better stouts I've had. There was only a thin layer of foam that disappeared almost instantly, with zero lacing, and then almost no carbonation from that point on. Smelled like roasted coffee and vanilla beans, so it seemed pleasant. The taste was artificial-esque and too sweet, and not much coffee coming through, just a vague charred flavor and vanilla candy. The feel was syrupy and sticky. Between the syrupy feel, the sweetness, and the lack of carbonation, it was a lot like a flat vanilla Coke someone spilled some coffee in. I think if it was just more carbonated it wouldn't feel so heavy and cloying (ironic considering all the older reviews say it's too carbonated, maybe the brewery overcompensated?).

Had a can less than a month from when it was canned. The beer was completely flat and tasted of cardboard. Local friends say its better, so hopefully just a canning issue.

Looks great, very dark, moderately thick. Too much vanilla, nothing subtle about it. It is as advertised. Just not to my taste.

This is not a bad brew but it is way too carbonated and it gets in the way of enjoying it properly. If you can get to the liquid, then it has a pleasant vanilla/chocolatey taste. This beer can and should improve once the carb issue is solved.

This looks more like a porter than a stout; hopefully I am not being too picky about that. Taste has some nice roasted tones. Very mild malt sweetness. Vanilla tones too. Decent enough, I guess. Kind of uninspiring.

Poured from a 12oz can that produced insane head. Maybe 6 fingers or more from a moderate pour. Loads of carbonation. Dark chocolate brown color with think brown head that lingers and laces. I'm impressed already and wasn't expecting much. Aromas of coffee beans, but not overpowering espresso, with cocoa and dark chocolate. Very traditional old school stout smell. Taste is bitter dark chocolate, coffee and vanilla It is not a complex beer. Vanilla is real subtle. I taste it in aftertaste only. Barely bitter in my book. Lighter in the mouth than it looked which is a little disappointing. Goes down dry and smooth. Had an all world look to it, smell wasn't bad either but a little thin in the mouth and on taste. I could drink a few of these watching a game though. Great tailgating stout.
