3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Drank from a firkin at the Big Texas Beer Fest.
The beer pours a dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma is a nice mix of chocolate and roasted malt, with a whole lot of vanilla. The flavor is basically identical to the aroma, with the chocolate and roasted malt coming through first and then the vanilla making an appearance. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation.
