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.

Miracle of miracles a Cigar City I don't like. Cloying sweet vanilla. Sure it's the style I don't like.

Draft @ Yard House in Orlando. Pours clear dark golden color with white head. Aromas of vanilla and cinnamon with some malt. Cinnamon and vanilla dominate the flavor. Medium body with average carbonation. Weird.

Snifter pour of clear lighter straw yellow with a Christmas snow pure white head. Nose is mild, but comes through with plenty of vanilla and lighter cinnamon. It’s sweeter than I expected I think. I guess I’ve never had real Horchata. Sweet creaminess with smooth vanilla throughout and some cinnamon. More lighter candy flavors... It’s definitely sweet, a little sweet for me to finish... Not that it isn’t good, I’m just diabetic now. 12082015

This is kind of weird. Definitely has the rice pudding (custard style) aroma and flavor of horchata. A little too sweet, though. Acidic fruitiness fits flavors well although not typical for horchata.

Nitro tap. Deep golden pour with a medium off-white head. Vanilla and baking spice in the aroma. Flavor is the same - super-sweet rice pudding and a small amount of alcohol kick. Thick, silky mouthfeel. A little too sweet for me, but well done.
