A creamy and smooth porter. Almost a dessert beer. The vanilla adds a sweetness to it but it’s hard to drink more than one.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft a the brewpub. Pours a reddish brownish beer with a medium small, beige head on top. Aroma is heavily vanilla and sugary. Like snuffing vanilla ice cream. Flavour is medium sweet, vanilla returns in the back mostly. Overal watery mouthfeel, low abv so excuse taken this one. Nice brew, loving the vanilla.

Nothing too special...a little light on noticeable vanilla. Surprisingly smooth, and a pleasant drinker - but like I said..nothing special.

Biz Trip in Auburn Hills, 12 fl oz, 4.7% a/v
Pours a deep black color with a nice light brown head. Aroma is chocolate, espresso, vanilla and cream. The taste is very smooth, and full of flavours, from vanilla to espresso and chocolate, the creamy aroma also comes through on the palate with a smooth creamy palate, overall a bit like an ice cream sunday, with some espresso and coffee syrup on top. A very dessert type beer, but a great offering.
