3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
10/8/12 bomber from papago.
dark importer brown color approaching black with a creamy cappuccino head.
big floral and estery nose... along with roast are the only notes i get until it hits about 70 degrees....after, fermented vanilla, umami, lactose, butterscotch and molasses.
the flavor shows about the same thing but with some banana and a mild bitterness on the finish. this really doesn’t taste like anything i would expect....no real oily vanilla, no choco, no coffee...odd.
the texture is nice however... big and creamy but controlled enough to finish. 5/4/5/4/13

"Pretty much takes all the goodness that is Tanilla and amplifies it without losing any of the nuances (which is a neat trick). A bigger, bolder Tanilla that stands out as a dessert beer, stand-alone or w/beef."

Bottle a few months back. Big black pour, little head. Big vanilla nose mixed with sweet roast, and espresso. Palate is big on the creamy espresso, medium roast, and lots and lots of vanilla, sweet, but the very finish almost balances it out with some bitterness. Yum!
