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.

glennmastrange (2683) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2016
Tap, nitro. Moderate cereal, light bread and roasted for the malt, light herbs for the hops, dough for the yeast, with faint dried fruit and toffee in the background. Head is average sized, creamy, off-white, with good lacing and is fully lasting. Color dark red/brown. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and slightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, creamy, with a soft carbonation. An excellent Irish Ale made even better by being charged with nitrogen.

MrHangover (4020) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2016
Draft. Pours a clear dark blonde beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is very malty, hints of toast, caramel and sweet toffee. Flavor is a bit herbal, takes some getting used to, but turns out fairly bittersweet, hints of cinnamon and allspice, sweet caramel again. Quite nice, interesting beer.

I had this at Brass Tap. Pours dark reddish brown with a thick white head. Taste vanilla, sweet, caramel. I thought this was pretty good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Nitro. Nose is light vanilla with some toffee and caramel notes. Fairly clear, deep red. Taste is high in vanilla with a light vegetal note. Malt is supportive with a light roasted note and never too sweet. Pretty damn tasty.

snoworsummer (4809) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 28, 2016
Nitro at WOB Orlando. Pours deep reddish-amber with a thick, creamy beige head. Smells like oak, wood chips, vanilla, slight spice, and caramel malt. Tastes like oak, vanilla, caramel, and strong malt. Medium body and low carbonation. Very interesting...

Nitro @ CCB, cheers Joe for the glass. Ambrée, col blanc-cassé. Arôme de vanille laissant un bouquet assez doux et plaisant, rétro moyen de malt pâle, caramel. Palais est doux gardant ce côté vanillé sans être surfait, léger caramel, Vienna? petite rondeur douce sur la fin tout en restant très léger en bouche. Amertume est plus en retrait. Je ne note cependant pas le côté boisé du chêne.

On tap. Deep amber pour with a fairly thick , solid head that sticks around. Somewhat mild, sweet aroma - gingerbread, caramel, vanilla. Taste follows, without the "mild" - big vanilla and caramel up front, some holiday spice to follow, and finishes with a little resin and wood. Typical nitro mouthfeel, thick and silky. Like this one a lot, even though I’m not a big fan of the style.
