COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In our hometown in 1965, Muhammad Ali won the world heavyweight title with a knockout blow some consider a "Phantom Punch". As our tribute to that fight, this big flippin’ stout packs a wallop of its own, with a ghostly hint of cocoa nib s and vanilla beans.

Cool beer from a mixed 12 pack. Cocoa vanilla sweetish stout that is just nice. Baxter actually impresses me the more chances I give them. Finish is lightly sweet and creamy.

From the 12 fl. oz. can marked 10-28-14 on the bottom of the can. I love the deep dark brown to nearly black pour and abundant frothy tan head. The aroma has a a lovely dose of vanilla bean and cocoa as promised. Definitely malt forward. The body is rather thin to medium. The taste is also vanilla based and malt forward with a slight bitterness to follow. This is all over the map but all in all I enjoyed it.

Really nice. Pours black with an initial frothy tan head and lots of clumpy lacing. Nose is huge vanilla. Flavours are vanilla, some plum, some coffee. Taste is medium/heavy sweet medium bitter. Kinda light body for the size of the beer, somewhat creamy with medium carbonation.

Pretty awesome stout-in-a-can (cans R sexy = bonus points), can taste the cocoa & vanilla, which combine well together here. Seems like this beer is kind of hard to find @ the moment, at least here in northwestern VT... hopefully not for long.
