Bottle @ The Clerkenwell Share. Thanks to Manny! Deep brown pour with a modest white head. Nose reminds of of frosted sugar shredded wheat. Unmistakable shredded wheat, some brown sugar. Vanilla cream. Taste is quite sweet. Restrained by some toasted grain. Nice balance. Creamy, easy going on the palate. Good for what it is.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can thanks to Manny G. It pours cloudy deep brown with a small tan head. The nose is sweet vanilla right in your face, coconut, pretty creamy, milky way, nuts and some maple syrup. The taste is smooth, toasty, earthy roast, wood, roasted nuts, maple syrup and shredded wheat. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth and no real sign of the 5% alcohol. Not much depth, but very drinkable anyhow.

Liked it, surprisingly so. Not usually a fan of "flavored" beers. This tasted like a good combination of beer and vanilla. Drove the pint cans.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour on tap at Happy Gnome, dark brownish pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of nice cocoa, roast and vanilla bean into some coffee, earthy, grassy notes with a hint of fruit. Taste was a mix of cocoa, roast, coffee into nice vanilla, caramel into a bit of grassy notes, finishing fairly sweet, slightly roasted.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Bottle shared at Max and Andy’s Tasting, 2/28/15
Aroma: Strong malt aroma, vanilla, chocolate, dark malts, roasted notes, mild smoke
Appearance: Dark brown color with a pretty decent sized, foamy, light brown colored head on it
Flavor: It has a fairly sweet flavor, good mix of vanilla and chocolate, some coffee as well
Palate: Has a smooth and clean mouthfeel, drinks rather nicely, medium bodied
Definitely a solid beer. I enjoyed the overall feel of this one. Gets close to being cloying, but somehow steers clear and remains a tasty beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Opaque brown. Minimally sized beige head with little retention. Roast and dark chocolate dominate the aroma with little vanilla. Initial flavour of roast and dark chocolate slowly coalesces with sweet vanilla and a relatively dry finish. Minimal hops as well. Not as amazing as I had anticipated.
