Keg @ CCB. Deep brown with a fat, creamy head. Nose is of vanilla fudge, rocky road ice cream. Super sweet. Similar taste. Coffee and ashy roast malt supports a Hershey-bomb of chocolate and vanilla. Soft and smooth. Creamy. Excellent stuff in the vein of Southern Tier.

Almost nothing not to like about this. Great base beer. Strong, but not overpowering vanilla. A little sweet.

Growler from brewery. Vanilla aroma & flavor slightly sweeter than what I typically desire but this beer still rocks. Smooth, easy to drink. Good twist on Maduro which is a wonderful brown in the first place.

On tap at the Brass Tap Coral Springs. Pours a nice brown with a creamy tan head and aroma of pleasant aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, and vanilla. Taste is creamy, lots of great vanilla flavor throughout with chocolate and roasted malt into the nice vanilla chocolate finish. Great brew and take on the Maduro with the vanilla adding lots of flavor

This was so freaking smooth! It was like drinking a glass of silk! Great aroma. Taste was great as usual but didn’t get quite as much vanilla as I would like.
