    I think of stouts as ales, by and large, so it's interesting to see on the lable that his one is cold lagered. The color is a red-tinged brown, like Coke. I really am put off by the smell of this beer. The net effect of all the vanilla is to make me think of rootbeer. Tastes like candy, or maybe children's flavored medicine. Cloyingly sweet aftertaste. This beer is too frou-frou for my palette.

    First product from Lawson Creek for me and the brewer is gluek Brewing country which is not a good thing but I will remain objective. The aroma is sweet and malty with maybe some very faint vanilla as well as maybe some caramel overtones. The appearance is a flat reddish-brown when held to the light with a head on top that is bubbly and carbonated as well as creamy and a light-tan in color and discipates to a light lacing. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied with not much of any complexity nor balance with a wet palate and is very thin and watery and nothing like a stout at all. The flavor is ruff and boring with some weak and very faint coffee bean with maybe some caramel and burnt coffee with an aftertaste that is cloying and a finish that is thin and watery. Overall, what a bad beer is seemed to be poorly made which is not surprising and a poor excuse for a stout and not really like one at all; I have no idea how you mess up a beer like this but Gluek brewing seemed to and of all breweries; they would be the one that could destroy a beer. Huge disappointment here for sure.

    I normally rate a beer more on it's own overall qualities rather than the qualities based on the respective style, but in this case I gotta rate lower for the simple reason that this beer is not even close to being a stout. If this beer was a dunkel I would have given it higher marks, although not much higher. Pours a darkish transparent amber color with a thick tan head. The head ultimately shrinks to a thin film, and there is moderate lacing. The aroma is sweet with an overly generous hint of vanilla. The mouthfeel is thin and slightly creamy. I enjoyed the flavor of this brew at first but it started to get weaker and nastier the more I drank. Although watered down the sweet malts and vanilla flavoring made their presence known. I would have prefered that the flavor be fuller and much maltier, that is where this beer falls short specfically for selling itself as a cream stout. For a stout it's got some major issues.

    An utter disapointment. Pours way too pale for a stout. Pours too pale for a porter. Pours more like a dark brown ale. The off-white head quickly dissipates and reminds me of the artificial feeling of the Bert Grant's beers. The aroma is thin, with vanilla and a slightly earthy malt. More of the same in the flavor. The Mouthfeel is watery. I was expecting something good and ended up with not sweet enough for a soda but too artificial and watery to be a beer. How can you make a concept like "vanilla stout" suck?

    another piece of crap from gluek. this one poured a light tan color with a eggshell head. Had a bland vanilla graham cracker aroma. Tasted like water and vanilla, pure shit from gluek again.

    Pours dark, but not cloudy, leaving a medium tan head that doesn't hang around long. Interesting cold-lagered process for producing a stout. Aroma is of vanilla and that old-fashioned horehound candy. Taste and texture are very similar to a cola. Leaves and oakish, coppery aftertaste.

    This is not a beer but it is really not a stout it is more of a dark lager it has a nice light brown head when poured but the head goes away fast.

    Im gonna start of by saying that this is not a stout. It poured a medium ruby color with a thin slightly off white head. THe mouthfell is way to light for a stout and is almost watery. The flavor is the one thing that did help this beer out. It is an initial taste of vanilla followed up by the flavor of more of a dunkel than a stout. Fairly malty flavor with no real hops very noticable.
