3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Batch 299 302. Interesting. Brown and clear with a good nose but not sure how to describe it. Carmel maybe. Thick body and sweet flavor with vanilla and molasses and a hint of coffee. Unique... truly.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle, poured into a brandy snifter. The aromas of cocoa and vanilla are initially notes with strength, as well as a healthy dose of creamy lactose sugar. Undertones include cookie dough, and a soft acetone warmth that turns towards coffee beans with a light citrus hint. It pours a clear, effervescent amber orange with a soft tan head containing small to micro bubbles and leaving only a light retention and light lace. The taste profile is highly sweet with a medium bitter. The texture is chewy and sticky with a soft fizz carbonation and a medium full body containing a strong chocolate chip cookies / shortbread and milk character with a syrupy caramel undertone. The finish is surprisingly clean fresh with a smooth vodka alcohol warmth. It’s aftertaste is very mellow with a hint of vodka alcohol, shortbread, caramel, and belgian chocolate.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured clear dark amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly minimal with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt and coffee aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted malt sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a golden orange/tangerine color. Aroma is sweet; lactose and vanilla most prominent, coffee, cocoa, some citrus/orange, some alcohol. Taste is of vanilla, lactose, coffee liquor, cocoa, but nothing really ties it all together. Really needs the beer equivalent of The Dude’s rug. Heavy sweetness. Cocoa and alcohol heat linger (which is nice, given the target taste), but misses on the mouthfeel (no doubt partly because of the carbonation) and it is just overly sweet. A bit sticky, rather than smooth and creamy. Without question, I’d rather have a well-made white russian. You should, too.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Meh. Average beer at best. Very milky and malty and kind of sweet. Pours yellowish in color with a thick white head. Has a malty milky aftertaste. Not that good. Had out of a bomber at home

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - Pours hazy rosy amber with a bubbly white head. Nose is school milk carton, stale coffee, and creamed corn. Taste nails White Russian more--lots of cream, a little coffee liqueur, and a sweet honey finish that’s a bit vegetal. Thin, and well-carbonated.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Pours murky and caramel-colored with a small, brief, off-white head. Smells like a cream soda with undercurrents of methanol and cocoa butter. Medium to full-bodied with busy carbonation. The flavor is all about sugary vanilla and toffee. Finishes bittersweet with a light cardboard component. This just didn’t work at all, but it’s certainly not offensive. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!

22oz bomber shared by someone. Amber orange body. Big vanilla coffee notes. Waffles with maple syrup. Excellent sweet dessert beer. Body is drinkable and easy for the ABV. Really good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle courtesy of Josh. Thanks. Pours a hazy amber color with a foamy off-white head that has good retention. The aroma is big and bold with cocoa, vanilla and coffee. The taste is not quite as bold as the nose, I get coffee, vanilla and mocha--but they are a bit subdued and watered down. The palate is just a bit thinner than I prefer and the carbonation is soft. Finishes short and sweet. Overall: .Very tasty stuff, strengths outweigh flaws.
