Great vanilla nose, solid, clean, and full of vanilla flavor. Jet black with a nice ring of head. Hints of chocolate and roasted malt but not too much. Nicely balanced. Could drink this all winter long...yummy!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
11/18/13 $1.99 bottle from RW. Drank during MNF on my $25 beer game with Luke.
Dark brown with next to nothing head.
The nose is overwhelmingly creamy vanilla maybe a little root beer. The taste is just that ...it's a flat half vanilla creme half root beer. Mouthfeel is thin. I would've liked it to be thicker but then I would've confused it with a milkshake. It's definitely not a bad beer but give it to someone and tell them it's a soda, they'd believe it

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very deep and dark brown with a thin tan head. The aroma is dominated by vanilla and roasted malts, with fainter chocolate and coffee impressions. Taste has lots and lots of vanilla. In fact, that is mostly what you get in here. I still get some mild roasted notes in here, but for all intents and purposes, its all vanilla. Chocolate aftertaste (just kidding its vanilla of course) lingers, but isnít very powerful. More full in body, with a somewhat creamy while thick texture. Low in carbonation, but that is expected in this style. This one isnít complicated. If you like vanilla, you will like this. I like vanilla. If you do as well, youíll enjoy this.

My beer of the day at ABC! Pours Pitch black/dark brown in the light. Finger of creamy head that dissipates quickly. Nose is very roasty and chocolatey. Vanilla is also present. Mouth is awesome. Chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. Very creamy and roasty. A lot vanilla in the taste. This was a pleasure to drink. Surprised it gets such low ratings.

Pours a dark and opaque black, with no head. Nose is sweet vanilla bean with a hint of roasted mocha coffee. Taste is pure sweet vanilla and tickles my taste buds......almost like drinking a cream soda. Finishes with what else but vanilla. Light and very drinkable. Quaff Score 8 / 10
