Extremely creamy mouthfeel, excellent use of lactose in a non-stout style. Sweet with notes of cinnamon but certainly more heavily tilted towards a sort of vanilla syrup character. Good stuff, interesting, a bit too sweet to be sessionable. Way better than the Guanabana CF in my opinion.

6/26/13. Originally had on tap at Aardwolf (a couple glasses) and have now had it on tap a couple of other places. Iíll admit it - I love this stuff. Some will say itís too sweet, and I could see that, but it was not a problem for me. Lightly hazed orange amber pour with a small khaki head. Rich, sweet aroma of lactose, rice pudding, tons of vanilla, perfect cinnamon, and more. Rich flavor, on the sweet side, lactose, rice pudding, vanilla, cinnamon, and more. I could drink gallons of this stuff. So. Good.

On tap at Proof. Murky yellow pour with a thin off-white. Aroma is cinnamon, vanilla. Tastes are a vanilla desert. Not overly sweet though. Was kind of scared of this being too sweet, but itís a unique sipper.

Mini growler. Pretty much as advertised. Pale "pilsner type" pour with little head. Nose is very "scented candle" like with cinnamon and vanilla dominating. Taste follows the nose. Feels a bit forced but it certainly tastes and smells like horchata.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewery. Slightly hazy golden pour with a white head. Rice, coconut, vanilla and spiced aroma. Sweet starchy flavor with vanilla beans, coconut spices and graininess. Medium bodied and shockingly resembling horchata. Brings me back to drinking horchata at my favorite taco place as a kid.

Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow on radio worth thin soapy white head that barely laces. Aroma is mild, grainy malt, some spice, lager yeast cleanliness. Taste is more diverse, vanilla sweetness, cinnamon spice, clean rice finish, a hint of booziness. Interesting, didnít know how it would work, but it does well.

On draft at Cigar City. Pours a hazy gold color with a white head. Nose is some rice, some coconut, some sweetness, and some vanilla and light spice. Flavor is similar with a nice ricey and vanilla sweetness among the milky sweetness. Some mild spices, but nothing overpowering. It tastes like an alcoholic horchata. Medium in body, and especially impressive considering its alcohol content.

Swingtop growler. The pour is a light yellow. The aroma is. Little different, warm cinnamon. The taste is exactly like horchata, very nice. Different, but really good.
