2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled from bomber at cah downtown. Pours a clear brown with chestnut highlights and decent khaki head. Smells and tastes like a tootsie roll. Don’t really get the vanilla, but lots of fake chocolate and bitter earthiness. Blah.

Bottle. Pours a dark black color with a decent head. Nice vanilla aroma with a hint of hops. Nice combo. Solid vanilla taste. Kind of tastes like a vanilla lager. Not much hops, but good balance between malt and the vanilla.

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
