3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tampa, Fl - on tap at the Cigar City Tap Room. Slightly murky dark copper pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma has some strong Irish whiskey accents, a hint of vanilla. Flavor brings forth some vanilla, a touch of caramel, some mint, all riding on a back end of Irish Whiskey. Smooth mouthfeel, but just a tad thinner than expected.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nitro at CCB. Pours a moderate amber color with a nice off white head. Aroma is of caramel, oak, vanilla, toffee and some light grainy notes. Taste is complex, nice smooth mouthfeel typical of nitro pours, oak, vanilla, smooth creamy caramel, toffee, light grainy notes. Tasty beer that tastes a lot bigger than 5%, but in a good way.

Hunahpus day. This stuff is awesome. Light red pour with a creamy head. Aroma was woody with soft notes of vanilla and fruity hops. Nice vanilla presence, some wood and a good bit of hops from top to bottom. The nitro really kicks this up a notch. So soft and drinkable with nicely developed flavors. Among all the madness this was a nice find.

This beer was so creamy and oaky with soft, fruity hops and just a drop of vanilla. Then again a drop of vanilla would be pretty damn potent... wouldn’t it? The thing I liked the most was the aroma; fall leaves, honeycomb and oak with some dank hops. Very nice stuff here.

3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap. Thick head like you’d find on a Guinness. Wood brown body with a vanilla extract aroma that is overpowering. Yates like a vanilla cream soda with the frothy root beer float head. Not a typical beer but that may be due to the nitro. Sticky lacing. Palate is a little lacking in anything other than vanilla.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours light amber brown. Super creamycream colored head from the nitro tap. Smells like vanilla beans on top of vanilla ice cream. Straight up cream vanilla with some alcohol bite and a little watered down. Low carbonation, medium light mouthfeel. A strange sweet fonish that does not commingle well with the vanilla.
