12 oz can. sweet, caramel with only a hint of vanilla. just enough hops to almost balance, but tends to build in sweetness as you drink it. For sweet beer lovers like me, it’s great. It’s sweeter than Newcastle, but not too sweet(for me). IPA and hoppy beer fans should avoid it. Even for me, drinking two in-a-row is enough. As another reviewer stated, the sweetness grows as you drink it until it become cloying.

Draft on SixTen guest tap. Deep amber color without any jead. Aroma is interesting... Caramel corn, cotton candy and vanilla beans. Well... I wasn’t expecting that in the flavor, the creamy smoothness from the body gives a velvel feel over the tongue with the above mentioned vanilla, cotton candy and vanilla beans. Also has a caramel sweetness that lingers after the sip. It get rather cloying after 4 oz. But it is really interesting to try but be prepared for a ton of sweetness.

Amber color with a short white head. Sweet nose with a strong artificial vanilla tone. This is a sweet beer with lots of caramel and melted toffee, ice cream and lots of vanilla. There are better vanilla additions out there. This borders on the artificial vanilla added that I really find jarring in some beers. This is really rich, but not my cup o’ tea.

Can and served in No-Nik pint glass: Amber hue with a small but lasting head, okay lace. A good amount of crystal malt as expected but I do wish it displayed a bit more vanilla. A touch of twangy fruit and leathery earthiness. A fair brew.
