On tap at Tanners in Kimberly. Pours dark brown with a cream colored head and great lacing. Looks luscious. Aroma has caramel. And caramel. Taste is of sweet caramel, some roast with hints of vanilla - a bit thin. Meh - ok.

Doesn’t smell great, but it is deliciously comforting. Love drinking this after a cold day outside.

Pours a deep amber color with a foamy off white head. Vanilla dominates the nose, but I do also get a bit of chocolate and roasty coffee. Ugh, just obnoxious vanilla flavor all the way down. Way over the top. With the thin, flat body, it does go down pretty easily. That taste is just awful. If 7 year olds were allowed to drink, this is the beer that would be marketed to them.

Very dark in color and dark head. Smells of chocolate with vanilla. Can taste a chocolate flavor, and vanilla. Very smooth texture. Not much of an aftertaste. Good beer.

Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours ruddy dark brown with a creamy/foamy light tan head. Fairly faint chocolate and vanilla aromas. Arguably medium body. There’s smooth burnt malt, and some chocolate, and a heavy dose of vanilla which dominates the not quite dry finish. Drinkable. Velvety? Arguable. It is smooth.

Poured from bottle. Good vanilla and chocolate smell and flavor. Not to over powering. Smooth. Somewhat rich. I surprisingly like this
