Normal looking stout. Some residual head and lacing. Flat, mild roast aroma. Minimal vanilla and lactose palate. Moderate body and descent carbonation. An average beer all around. Nothing really stands out.

Pours black with a finger of khaki head. Head retention is moderate with no lacing left behind. Vanilla bean, lactose, with toasted and biscuit malts form a sweet, light aroma. Flavor profile is vanilla bean and lactose right up front - nice and sweet, and with a good balance. Reminiscent of vanilla bean ice cream. There is a backing of toasted and biscuit malts. Mouth feel is a little fizzy, with an otherwise creamy texture. Thickness is medium. Overall, a fun beer. The vanilla is good, with fair qualities all around.

Served in a 12oz snifter.

Deep brown in color with minimal light penetration. There's a a quarter inch of dense brown head on top. The aroma is pretty much lactose with a touch of dark malt. I'm tasting vanilla and lactose along with some dark malt. The mouth is creamy and a touch watery.

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

Pours a dark brown color. 1/3 inch head of an off-tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of strong sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, hint of chocolate, hint of hop, and slight pale malt. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Fits the style of a Milk / Sweet Stout. Tastes of strong vanilla, sweet malt, slight roasted malt, slight chocolate, and a hint of hops. Overall, good appearance, decent aroma and body, good blend and feel. Oddly, the vanilla is lacking in aroma but strong in body and the sharpness is too noticeable.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance – Dark opaque brown, small ring of foam head
Smell – Coffee, chocolate, hint of vanilla. A little weak.
Taste – Coffee & chocolate forward, vanilla finish, with hops mild.
Mouthfeel – Slight burn on tongue. Heavy coating in mouth, reminds me of a thin milk shake.
Overall – A smooth drinking stout. Good, but not outstanding. A limited release as part of the Stout Bout.

Pours an effervescent brown tinged mahogany with a pinky of tan head. Average head retention & lacing

S: Mocha, faint roasty grain, fades as it warms

T: Follows the nose, plus dryness up front. Lactose dryness & cream as this warms, faint cocoa notesas this warms. Finishes dry, with faint cocoa, & a little vanilla

MF: Body seems a bit thin & a little over-carbonated at first, gets a little creamier as it warms

Alright, nothing great here, so far this mixed 12, is a box of meh...

This is a deep brown beer, nearly black, with a soapy tan head. The aroma has vanilla and a little chocolate. Sweet, a little malt, it's almost like vanilla ice cream. The taste has a bit of a chocolate...not really sweet...instead, it is a little dryish. The body is full, and the overall experience is quite flavorful. Nice.
