From the 750 bottle. Chocolate and big alcohol bite. Rum raisin vanilla and some pecan pie thrown in. Tastes more like a barleywine.

Clear dark copper with a tan head. Heavy vanilla aroma with mole sauce notes. Delicious pecan pie filling, aromatic vanilla beans, some fumey alcohol. Really does give off a pie vibe. Body is quite thin and airy.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tallahassee, Fl. - Whole Foods - 750 ml capped bottled. Pours a deep, dark brown with a slight reddish tinge to it, light off-white head - light traces of lacing. Aroma is pleasant and sweet with some molasses, nutty pecan accents, a touch of vanilla. Flavor is sweet, but not cloying with some sweet pecan pie notes, a bit of maple syrup, some hints of vanilla and a back end of brown sugar. Mouthfeel has a nice stickiness. This could have have been a hot mess.....but CC has a way of making these things work.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer pours a dark brown with a small khaki head. Smells of vanilla and nutty, taste is very sweet lots of vanilla up front followed by nuttyness and malts. Basically taste like pecan pie, some alcohol can be detected once it gets warmer. The body is a bit thinner than I expected but it is very drinkable

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle from Whole Foods in Tallahassee. Brown pour with an orange tint and thin tan head that disappears quickly. Nutty, chocolate and vanilla in the aroma. Tastes definitely capture the pecan pie vibe -- pecan, coffee, toffee, chocolate, little woody, molasses. Slick medium to thick palate. It’s sweet for sure, but not overly so. Still, just a one-off sipper for me. Well constructed and interesting overall.

Bottle and draft from brewery,wow this really surprised me a real dessert beer.This poured dark brown to almost black and was nice and thick,with big hints of vanilla and pecans and more vanilla,when I get a chance and get over to CCB they always seem to have odd off the wall beers and that is a great thing and did I say vanilla enough it really stood out and was very malty,i enjoyed this and would recommend giving this a try.CHEERS

Bomber. Pours a rich dark color with a nice brown tight head. Nose is sweet, nutty and malty. Taste is very sweet with vanilla and nutty flavors and alcohol easily appreciated. Finish is sweet with lingering vanilla and nuts. Flavorful and delicious, maybe tad too sweet. Quaff Score 8 / 10
