On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear red with an amber hue and a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has strong vanilla giving almost a root beer like note. Flavor is full of strong vanilla and bread with a bit of toffee underlying.

Growler from Dangerous Man. Dark amber color with an overpowering vanilla flavor. I was very curious about this beer since I have never had anything similar but I was unfortunately a little disappointed.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, dark reddish pour with white head, aroma brought notes of herbal, floral notes, slight tea like earthy notes into a sweet caramel, vanilla middle, some slight doughy notes. Taste is a mix of dough, bread, caramel, and vanilla into earth, spice, floral, and herbal tea, finishing fairly bitter, slightly sweet.

I’m impressed. Really light, low carbination, a nice tea/earthy flavor that is seriously paired with vanilla. Awesome vanilla aroma too. Solid experiment.

Draft at brewpub. Strong vanilla aroma. Dark amber with thin large bubble tan head. All of this "grassy", "tea" comments of others is baloney. All vanilla and excellent!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap @ Dangerous Man. Pours a bit hazy reddish orange appearance with a tan head. Really heavy vanilla candy, herbal, a touch fruity aroma. Weird herbal/grassy/tea, vanilla, cookies and cream flavor. Weird but not hard to drink.

Tap at DM. Pours a very nice red/amber with lots of head. Smell is somewhat potpouri, vanilla (of course). Taste is a bit odd, vanilla is creamy and a touch cloying. Very herbal taste. Not something I’d really want to drink again, but it was interesting.
