Draft at Bob’s Bar. Pours a hazy amber-brown color with no head. Vanilla blasts out of the aroma and gets sweeter as it progresses. Also notes of caramel, nuts, and brown sugar in the nose. The flavor is vanilla, about as much as a human can handle, with some caramel and toasted malts. No complexity, nothing to balance or cut the vanilla. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, chewy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Got about halfway down, and that’s all I could handle.
