Bottle from notes: Tanilla used to be a favorite but can be overly sweet and simple at times. That is the case here, though the beer is enjoyed. Sweet vanilla cocoa and booze. Warming. Good, but not worth the premium price.

Deep black in color... Aroma of bourbon, chocolate malts... Hint of tobacco on the nose... Nice tannish head... Flavor is vanilla, chocolate malts, with notes of bourbon on the palate... Delicious, better than the imperial tanilla ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

badlizard (5535) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Bottle. Black with a fizzy off white head. Roasted grain, chocolate, and faint bourbon aroma. Smooth creamy palate. Tastes of milk chocolate, vanilla, and faint bourbon - too basic: itís lacking the complexity of better barrel aged beers. A more robust bourbon presence might have gone some way toward making this a better beer, but alas! Especially disappointing for the price point.

marcus (8010) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle shared by oRos. Pours dar brown with a modest beige head and a vanilla and alcohol aroma. Tehre is a hearty treacle flavor that starts sweet, then fades to bitter with a bourbon finish. Nicely aged.

oRos (1419) - sacramento, California, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle from capitol beer Sacramento. Pours black with white head. Taste is really mellow for the imperial tanilla. The bourbon is a nice touch.
