Beer pours nice and black. Let it sit for a few minutes until the chill is out. Subtle sweetness and vanilla with a little bitterness at the end.

TheCaptMatey (113) - Ohio, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Poured a dark amber to brown colour with an off white head that left thin lacing. Aroma was of roasted malts, coffee, and a hint of vanilla. Flavor is a mix of said malts and vanilla. Medium bodied brew starts off sweet and smooth, but ends with an assertive malt bitterness.

Beautiful dark brown poor with about an inch and a half to two inch frothy head. If you hold it to the light you can see hints of red. In the intial flavor I get the chocolate with the finish flavor coming in a little bitter and smokey coffee. This was an easy, smooth drink for me, had to consciencely slow down once or twice. This could easily become a strong session beer. http://wp.me/p5urG4-eY

patricks110 (1783) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
Rich malty brew that pours out a burgundy hued brown with a thick, foamy tan head. The nose has vanilla up front with licorice and coffee notes blending with a light smoky, earthy note. A bit sweet in the mid palate with vanilla all over and nice notes of soft smoky malts and coffee beans. A good balance with the smoke. The finish is rich and a bit bitter with a nice lingering vanilla smoke note. Overall, a good brew.

highibus (738) - Vail, Arizona, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Deep brown with ruby hues on the edge. Frothy off white head is lasting nicely. Aroma is quite muted. Some light smoke but not a lot there. Flavor comes with some vanilla and a light smokiness. The vanilla and smoke fight slightly for dominance but actually work well together. Nice beer.

revolution2718 (266) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Pours clear dark with red highlights and a decent foamy head. Nose is smoke, roast, a hint of coffee, some chocolate. Taste is very roasty, milk chocolate, vanilla bean on the finish, some bitterness on the finish, smoke. Very smooth. Interesting, I don't love the finish. There's a lot going on here, perhaps too much.

ROGUE (2127) - Newark, Delaware, USA - NOV 13, 2014
On tap @ SL Liquors. Pours a deep dark brown color with a mahogany hint and a half-inch light tan head that is pretty dense and slightly sticky.The aroma is of straight vanilla with a lightly roasted malt, cocoa, and coffee. The flavor follows with strong vanilla along with light roast, milk chocolate, cocoa and coffee. Medium carbonation with a full creamy medium body.
