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

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Brewers Haven. Dark brown with small foamy head. Immediate vanilla aroma, more in the taste, which also brings some cocoa and roast grain bitterness. Smells sweet, without being overly sugary. Bitterness lingers enough to kill any remnants of the perceived sweetness.

Deep golden color with a small head. Huge vanilla on the nose masks most of the caramel and bready malt underneath. you could use this when baking but nice to sip on.

Creamy, smooth mouth feel with light cream head. Easy-drinking and intense vanilla and cocoa notes. Bitters chocolate but sweet finish. Mild body and loe hops bitterness let the vanilla and chocolate shine through. Would be great with ice cream.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at The Ginger Man, NYC. A dark brown beer with a dense, finger-thick off-white head. The aroma is roasted and lightly nutty in the back, with lots of vanilla. Some chocolate too. Thereís a nice bitterness in the flavor, some coffee and chocolate, even some roasted malts, and lots of vanilla that lasts forever. Itís medium to full-bodied and nicely carbonated. Overall, sure itís nice, but thereís way too much vanilla going on. 150624
