22oz bottle. Vintage 2011.
Dark brown, black pour, thin off-white head. Aroma of vanilla beans, and chocolate malt. Smells like a dessert or a cheesecake shoppe. Flavor has a mouthful of chocolate malts, essence of vanilla. Thin texture. Finishes full of flavor.
My 3125th Rating.

starts off pretty well with a light tasty flavor and a subtle vanilla flavor. however it falls kinda flat with weak malts and low on the mouthfeel. the end is slightly metallic good but not great.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is sweet and toasted with hints of hops and a tiny amount of vanilla. The appearance is dark brown with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma with a metallic and watery taste. The palate is average. Overall not that good of a beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Malty aroma has a note of caramel plus hints of vanilla and unsweet chocolate. It pours a barely translucent chocolate brown with a fairly thick light tan head that leaves some good lacing. Mouth filling flavor has a malty core plus notes of caramel and chocolate and hints of wood, vanilla and toffee. Smooth, heavy-bodied texture has a good fizz that imparts a long-lasting tingle to the finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle. Pours deep, dark brown with tan head. Aroma, well, it smells like a chocolate/vanilla cooch....seriously....odd. Flavorhas some chocolate, vanilla, malt, toffee and some alcohol spice. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy body with high carbonation. Overall, its just kind of a mess, drinkable, but just all over the place.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nutty brown pour with copious amounts of foam. You canít see through it. So good so far. Yes, good before far. Sleeps like beer sweet malt sugar maple and nuts. Has flavors of tobacco. Well, thatís the main one. Perhaps some cocoa and cherry or is that the vanilla. Well, it tastes like cherry to me. The head is awesome. Its thick and frothy and stays around until youíre done drinking. The brew finishes a bit sharp and isnít hides that 7%.

Pours a thick mahogany with a smell of plastic cocoa. Flavor is plastic chocolate and cocoa powder. Average mouthfeel. Disgusting.
