I fell in love with this one a couple of years ago.   Right away I was drawn to the great coffee flavor with a incredible vanilla finish.   I enjoy this beer all year long.   Last summer I had a keg of the Coffee Vanilla Stout and for those who said they didn't like "dark beer", well they soon figured out how easy drinking and delicious this one is.   I have this one as a 9 on the Holy Grail Scale.
