22oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a slight tan head. Seems like a brown ale to me with vanilla flavoring. Itís not bad but I feel like the vanilla is not making it better just sweeter. Good enough though to make me want to try the imperial version.

Bottle. Pours almost black with small beige head. Aroma of vanilla and roasted malt. In taste sweet and roasty with rather sweet vanilla like finish. Medium body, soft carbonation, smooth. Nice but to sweet for me.

Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is símores, vanilla, kidís chocolate breakfast cereal. Taste is the same with a creamy mouthfeel. Had this back-to-back with Mother Earth Cali Creamin (Vanilla Cream Ale) and both reminded me of kidís breakfast cereal (without being overly sweet).

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pour. Deep brown, thin head. The vanilla is surprisingly strong in the nose.Taste is much more balanced with coffee and chocolate in addition to the vanilla. Nicely sweet but not overpowering. Creamy mouthfeel, light-to-moderate body. Some bitterness in the aftertaste keeps the sweetness in check and round the beer out nicely. Nice treat for Halloween this year, almost felt like during a símoreí
