Bottle from Appellation Wines. Opaque dark brown body with a lasting beige head. Steady carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of smoked cheese, filter coffee and subtle vanilla. Flavour of lightly smoked malts, milk chocolate and vanilla cream. Medium body with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Soft fizz. An interesting beer, although it becomes a tad cloying.

Handypaul (313) - - MAR 4, 2015
Bottle. Lots of bitterness, no smoke and a fair bit of vanilla. Pours dark brown with a frothy head that thins quickly leaving almost no lacing. Medium and lingering bitterness, weak aroma of vanilla, medium body and a long bitter finish. Kinda ho hum.

demannu (152) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Had high expectations for this beer. Smokey? Very much so. Vanilla bean? Not so much. It’s there but I wanted a more pronounced vanilla flavor. Maybe the smoke and bitterness just buried it a bit too much for me. I’m sure others will appreciate it this more than I did.

Pours a dark brown with a hint of amber. Has a strong smoky aroma with chcolate, coffee and vanilla. A very grainy taste with coffee and vanilla. Lingering coffee taste that is very dry.
