Aroma is small tan head with deep black. Aroma has some vanilla and roasted malts. Taste is a blend of roasted coffee and vanilla. Overall not a strong or complex one, but well balanced and enjoyable.

Deep dark brown. Malty aroma with notes of chocolate and vanilla. Coffee dominate the flavor with subtle hints of chocolate and vanilla. Puts you in the mind of an iced coffee, with a mild hop finish.

12iz bottle shared that poured a dark brown to almost black. Minimal dark head. Initial aroma is imitation vanilla and lots of it with chocolate bars. Got got no coffee on the nose. The flavor was more of the same really not liking this to much. Only coffee comes on the backend and it’s very light. Mostly vanilla and chocolate.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer pours a dark brown color with some ruby in it when help up to the light with a medium sized tan head. The aroma vanilla, chocolate, coffee. The aroma is very sweet. The taste is mostly predominated by the vanilla extract. The beer is very sweet and outside of the predominant vanilla flavor you do pick up the chocolate and mild coffee flavor as well. The mouthfeel is light and creamy. It is easy to drink but the vanilla would prevent this from being a session beer for me.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle picked up at Old Town in Louisville. Poured into a shaker pint. Jet black color with huge soapy tan head. Vanilla extract on the nose with a hint of coffee: burned. A little too sweet on the palate and a heavy finish. Burned coffe taste separates from the sweetness, not too pleasant.
