[4177-20111203] Tap. Mild roastiness and vanilla bean cocoa aroma. Clear, dark dark red body with a medium-lasting creamy tan head. Chocolatey malt flavour has a bitter vanilla thing going on. Full body. Tasty. (8/3/7/3/14) 3.5

Firkin at Sugar Maple. The beer pours to a clear dark mahogany body with a creamy tan head. Awesome lacing. Aromas of sweet vanilla candy with chocolate and sweetened condensed milk brownies. Flavor is sweet balanced vanilla and chocolate with brown sugar and molasses. Layers of complexity. The palate is silken and super easy drinking. Goes down "too easy".

cask. I am not a huge fan of Old Chub but this one is a completely different beast. The vanilla just sings and the mouthfeel is decadent.

2011-12-03. Very dark brown body with a small beige head and lace. 3+ Very sweet malt aroma, strong vanilla character throughout 7+ Similar flavour is sweetly malty with a good amount of vanilla. 7+ Smooth medium bodied palate. 3+ The second half of the glass is much less enticing than the first as the vanilla becomes a bit much, but it is pretty nice overall. Quite liked it but not sure if it would score as highly on a second visit. Cask at Goodbar, Buffalo

Appearance clean dark ruby-black with beige mid lighter top.3+
Flavor and Palate : Mid plus bodied. Smooth, creamy vanilla feel, caramel candy. Mild with its potent alcohol. Easy going with more malts as its progress. Solid brew.

Vanilla, really rich malt, a bit of alcohol. Huge sweet malt. Stunning. Flavor is sweet caramel & malt, vanilla, dark honey, toffee. Fucking stunning. The only problem is that it’s too sweet. Still, amazing.

nimbleprop (7495) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Sampled at Max’s in Baltimore. Pours an oily but transparent, mahogany brown with zero head. Nose is rum, booze, coconut, caramel, a little candied orange. Flavor is strong vanilla bean, caramel, mostly vanilla, light malt, some cracker. Full bodied, slick, tannic finish.

(cask at meddlesome moth) Cloudy ruby red/brown. Very few bubbles but sOme lingering. Nose of cola, raisins, light peat, plums, dates. Taste of very pronounced peat, raisin, toasty, caramel, and big vanilla. This is so smooth and awesome. Very easy to drink!

Nellie (349) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 27, 2011
Smells like warm vanilla beans. Sweet brown sugar. Tastes a little smoky but not offensive. Very smooth and easily drinkable. Thumbs up
