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.

On draft at CCB. Didn't know what to expect with this but was pleasantly surprised. It's sweet and aromatic like many other CCB beers (especially southern slice or oatmeal raisin). Like those other beers, it can be a bit one note in that the sweetened flavor is great, but the backing flavor is just a bland beer backdrop. Still though, the sweetened horchata flavor of this is solid enough to overcome that.

Draft… Pours clear and yellow with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma is as advertised – loaded with vanilla crème and cinnamon. Medium-bodied with a slick, fatty mouthfeel and modest carbonation. The flavor comes as advertised as well – sweet tapioca pudding, vanilla and cinnamon. Finishes bittersweet – light bitterness and heavy sweetness. It’s like cream soda, but better.

On draught at Dunedin House Of Beer. Cloudy yellow color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Floral aroma with notes of cinnamon and bready malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of vanilla, cinnamon, biscuit malt and fruit. The finish is sweetly spiced with a creamy vanilla aftertaste. Interesting and above average overall.

Tap. Moderate hay for the malt, grass for the hops, barnyard, musty and funky for the yeast, with hints of wood and a big dose of cinnamon. Head is large, creamy, white with excellent thick lacing and is fully lasting. Color is clear medium amber. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes the same. Palate is medium, creamy with a soft carbonation and a lightly alcoholic finish. A pretty good American Strong, but seems more like a Spice Beer.

Nitro draft at the Syb Pig in Boca Raton. Pours a nitro beauty in a small pilsener glass. Once completed the two finger velvet head is gorgeous. Aroma is mild with cinnamon, hay, cereal, rice, and paper. The taste is more complex however with the cinnamon and other spices (almost like Chai) on the front with the rice and sweetness on the back end. Also some vanilla. Clean, light, refreshing. Kind of an after dinner desert drink however. I really liked it but one was enough because of the sweetness.

Nitro tap @Proof Production. Hazy, greenish gold, tight bone colored nitro head. Light cinnamon cereal aroma. Tastes like it smells but a bit more milky. Sweet , milky, cinnamon, tangy at times. Medium to slightly heavy body. Spice-bitter finish. Pretty tasty, but a little sticky and I really only needed a half pint.

On nitro. Pours clear gold with a thick white "nitro-esque" head. Aroma is cinnamon & apple pie - getting a little gingerbread too. Imagine those aromas translated into flavor and blended with some biscuit-like malts. Nice. The malts and cinnamon linger in the mid palate and the finish kinda drops off, but the flavor is awesome. Like it.

Tallahassee, Fl., on tap at the Proof Tap Room. Light golden and cloudy appearance. Pleasant sugar sweet cinnamon aroma. Flavor reminds me of Toasted Cinnamon Crunch cereal, not too sweet though, a touch of brown sugar. thick enough mouthfeel. Nice little diversion.
