COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Don’t be fooled by this beer…it’s vanilla, not tapioca! Dark color, creamy head, and complex flavor combine for a substantial beer that gives you a soft nose with a light, bold taste. Madagascar vanilla beans are the star of this beer, accented by bourbon and cocoa. Your brain tells you it’s going to be deep, dark, and heavy, but your tongue knows the truth. You’ll love the voodoo that we do…

Maybe this was a bad batch but I was not impressed by a faded impression of a porter. I am willing to give it a second chance since the rest of the lineup indicates this to be more of an aberration than a routine tap handle from Evil Czech.

Aroma / Appearance - An inky black base shimmers under a cream colored eggshell head. Light vanilla, coffee, and malts tickle the air without committing to anything serious. Charred ash lingers as an additional tease.

Flavor / Palate - A limp mouthfeel shows hints of promise without delivering. Simple vanilla and coffee taste more like a craft soda than a beer. This easy to drink beer fades quickly with nothing more than a forgettable impression. Skip this one or save it for the end of a flight once you’ve run out of other samples to try.

Draft to pint mug at the Culver brewpub. Looks good; a slightly translucent dark coffee with bubbly light beige head. Smells of dark malt, vanilla, and chocolate with a touch of rye spice. Tastes like it Smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Tmoney99 (11069) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Draft. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted chocolate malt and vanilla aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex brew.

574deadzone (1088) - North Central, Indiana, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Sample size on draft at the Mishawaka Public House. Pours dark brown with a thinner mocha head that leaves some spotty lace. Nose involves chocolate milk, dark crusty bread, some raisin notes. Somewhat sweet, fairly bitter. Light bodied, softly carbed, silky, with a tingly vanilla finish. Nice brew with a good flavor. I would like perhaps more body, but this is a session brew by design, and there’s nothing wrong with that. This should be a quite popular offering for them.

tap at 800 degrees in February - Smells of coffee and sweet milk chocolate. It’s a near black brew with a very small head. The flavor is sweet with lots of chocolate. It’s medium bodied and finishes with roast coffee. I thought any bourbon character was quite subtle. Good brew.
