growler. aroma is soft vanilla that immediately refers to a bowl of melted ice cream. appearance is ruby/brown with fine head and big legs. flavor is huge, soft, coating vanilla. at times as much hershey syrup as it is vanilla. brown ale roast improves in contrast to the candy sweetness. cushion, pillow soft mouthfeel. absolutely addictive. might be to sweet for some, is suprisingly not cloying for me whatsoever, i could probably slam the whole 32 oz growler of this stuff.

Semi thin body but nice enough to stand the big flavors. Aroma and flavor on this one are great. Smooth, creamy, faint oats and sugar and loads of vanilla. Light toast ans raosted malts, delicious.

jjuf1853 (1269) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2010
Draft at IBG (Lutz, FL). Served in a wooden keg. Slightly sweet aroma of vanilla and bourbon. The flavor was also quite sweet with lots of vanilla along with considerable amount of cherry and a slight oakiness. Very tasty but a little too sweet for my taste to have more than one in a sitting.

dmac (4626) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Draft at Rattle íNí Hum. Solid deep brown body with a smaller white head. The aroma reminded me of the inside of a Dunkin Donuts, artificial vanilla syrup combined with chocolate and coffee notes. Slightly thin body with softer carbonation. The flavor is a combination of vanilla coffee and a chocolate toffee bar. Although this was one of my least favorites of the night itís still better then about 90% of the other craft bers out there.

On draft at R & H. Pours a dark mahogany maple with a small off white head. Aroma of oats, light vanilla and nuts. Taste of vanilla, oats and nuts.

A: The pour is a dark brown color with some nice red highlights and a small tan head. S: A sniff of this one gives you a nosefull of incredibly sweet vanilla. I was expecting some subtlety (a la Stone Smoked Porter with Vanilla), but this is very bold. Thereís a slight roasted and toasted malt aroma to this as well. T: The flavor is almost exactly like the nose. The sweet vanilla is once again the star (as you would expect/hope). There is a slight roasted coffee note to it, along with the same nutty, toasted biscuit malt character that was in the nose. M: The body is medium with some low to moderate carbonation (probably due to the filling and shipping processes). D: As previously mentioned, I was expecting just a hint of vanilla, but was actually quite surprised by the amount of vanilla. My only complaint was the level of sweetness that it provided, but otherwise I found it to be quite nice.

Tap at Rattle n Hum. Vanilla bourbon nose. Medium bodied a bit sweet almost cloying but a good base makes this pretty drinkable.†

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - FEB 28, 2010
Tap at Rattle n Hum: Deep amber pour with a fading off white head. Mild toasted barley in the aroma. Coffee-like roast is there with subtle vanilla bean. Slick body. Lots of vanilla in the flavor- but itís not that sweet. Some toasted dark crystal malts at the fore precede a touch of subtle coffee-like roast. Balanced with a nice subtle vanilla presence. Solid.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 26, 2010
Draft. Pours a mahogany body with an off white head. Dark malty sweetness with a creamy vanilla toned body. Light cream and pie notes and a mild chocolate twist with toast and vanilla. Great twist on a brown ale.

Tap @ RnH - pours red/brown. raisin, chocolate and vanilla bean. roasty and smoked. finishes dry with some not unpleasant astringency. Sweet and woody, biscuit arouma. Brown and maple sugar. some burnt wood around the edges. Very nice balance. The vanilla really improves the Oatmeal brown ale.
