On tap at HopCat in East Lansing. Pours a dark brown, almost black, with a mild head that laces beautifully. The smell is heavy on vanilla with subtle hints of cocoa nibs. The taste is great, for about 2 seconds. Vanilla comes on strong and then quickly runs out, then everything falls apart. It finishes almost sour and citrusy, and the damn thing seems to release heavy amounts of carbonation for no reason at all. It shows so much promise, and then just blah.

Tap at Churchkey during Craft Brewers Conference. Poured a near pitch black color, some ruby notes on the edges, medium sized off-white head. Aroma was slightly artificial smelling vanilla notes. Flavor was about the same - kinda liked it despite the hope for really fresh tasting vanilla instead of extract notes. Smell reminded me of pouring vanilla extract while making cookies.
