adnielsen (10475) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle @ home, picked up at RJs Fort Collins. Still deciding if I should "party" with Dunt. Pours a clear, deep reddish brown appearance with a light brown head. Spicy, sweet cereal, vanilla, chocolate aroma. Fairly sweet, Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa, vanilla, caramel candy, a bit woody/grainy flavor. Drinks pretty fucken good.

"Very disappointing aroma...little roast and even less vanilla. A little dusty. Look is ok, nice ruby tinged dark brown color. A little thin on the feel, and a little prickly. The flavor is more vanilla and roast, but slightly artificial. The aroma eventually opens but is the same. Let down."

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2012
12oz bottle with a twist-off cap, thanks to Greg. Best by 2/11/13. Dark clear brown / red color. Thin light brown head. Little loose dots of lace. Sweet taste. Lighter carbonation. Medium body. Kind of a sticky aftertaste. Vanilla extract aroma, caramel, not much portery goodness to back it up. OK, but I’m not a fan of this

DuffMan (9498) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 8, 2013
Bottle. Medium-dark brown with an average tan head. Very fake vanilla aroma and flavour, some nice roast undertones, but the fake vanilla kind of killed this for me. On the thin side too.

BVery (9483) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle. Deep cola pour with a small beige head. Artificial vanilla aroma. A hint of roast and chocolate. Pretty thin on the palate. Just okay, but drinkable.

phaleslu (9307) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 15, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark brown with a beige head. Pretty sweet, definitely a lot of vanilla and chocolate, with lighter nuts, earth, tobacco, and brown sugar. Light body, moderate to medium carbonation, and a sweet, fizzy mouthfeel. So so.

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark brownish black pour with thin slightly off white/tan head, aroma brought notes of vanilla, slightly artificial but not bad, some slight roast, coffee, caramel, hints of cocoa powder as well. Taste is very straightforward, vanilla notes mix right into coffee, chocolate, and finishing with some roasted malts, slightly bitter. While its straightforward, I actually like this style of beer, so it worked for me. A bit thin on the palate.

Ibrew2or3 (8074) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 20, 2014
12oz bottle pours with a mahogany to deep ruby red body that supports a thin tan head. The aroma offers up sweetness in the form of malts and vague vanilla as well as some earthy chocolate. The taste starts with malts and chocolate and then mild roasted malts and sweet malts. It gets a tad roastier to midway amid plenty of thin bodied sweetness.

b3shine (8047) - Indiana, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle to pint. Looks decent; a semi-transparent reddish-brown with fluffy light beige head that slowly dissipates into lacing. Smells of malt and vanilla. Tastes like it smells, but better. Solid on the palate too. This one exceeded my expectations.

blipp (8011) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Bottle. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Vanilla, milk chocolate, caramel candies, lightly roasted malts, and a hint of coffee. Very vanilla forward. Pretty good.
