Pours pitch black color with a 2 finger thick whipped, frothy brown head that looked like a puffy cloud and dissipated very slowly, leaving minimal spotty lacing. The smell comes at you with intense vanilla, like a bottle of vanilla extract spilled out. There are coffee notes, some dark chocolate, faint roasted malts and brownie batter, but those are distant aromas as the vanilla absolutely dominates. The vanilla is basically too strong in every regard, overpowering the coffee components and adding a level of sweetness that's cloying. If it had more roasted malt, cocoa or chocolate and coffee flavors then it would have been balanced and not one dimensional. As this is, it's just not complex enough to savor like most TH stouts. The vanilla does completely mask the 11% ABV, but overall this was a let down.

16oz. capped bottle into a Founders snifter.

Dense, rich, and heavy but this one just looks like still motor oil. Nose is layers of vanilla bean, sweet cream, molasses, mocha, and fudge. Very aromatic. Solid but the vanilla bean overwhelms the coffee aromas here. Beer opens with huge vanilla notes. I get sprinkles of brown sugar, mocha, and coffee but the dominant flavor is easily vanilla. Milk and cream in the middle. Mocha, chocolate, fudge, and of course, more vanilla in the end and aftertaste. Body is full with low carbonation. Chewy, dense, and oily on the palate and goes down slick and warm with a long, lingering aftertaste.

The body is incredible but overall this one's a bit one dimensional for me. I expected more here.

Pours opaque, jet black in color with one quarter inch head. Taste is big vanilla, milk chocolate, white sugar and roasted coffee. Heavy body, low carbonation, sweet and roasty. Tastes like a Tree stout. Coffee is not overwhelming. Tasty, sugary sweet but not sure if I could pick this out of a lineup of Tree stouts.
