3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours cloudy copper/brown with an off-white head. Aroma of vanilla and cinnamon, pale and caramel malts, a good amount of sweetness, and some spices/dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A unique and cool beer but something Iíd probably never want to drink again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Muddled copper with a light beige, bubbly head that reduces to a thin film. Aroma of vanilla cake, Red Vines licorice, mild cinnamon & some apparent, residual sweetness. Dessert-y. Taste has heavy angel food cake with vanilla frosting, Nilla wafers sprinkled with light cinnamon, & some clove-like spice. Lingering vanilla coated rice cake finish with just a slight hint of earthy bitterness that tries to offset some of the sweetness. Mildly creamy body. Itís a sweet one, for sure, & definitely a dessert beer. Iím a fan of vanilla, though, so this one was up my alley. Large servings might exhaust, but smaller pours are very tasty.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to tectactoe for sharing. Cloudy orange-gold pour with a small foamy head that fades to a ring. Unique aroma of red pop, angel food cake, vanilla, and a little cinnamon. Tastes sugary sweet up front. Starts off like red pop and then finishes with angel food cake. Really cool mix of flavors. Medium body. Mouthfeel is ok. Pretty cool beer but definitely not for everyone. Would also be hard to drink more than 5 or 6 ozís probably.

Strong vanilla on the nose. Really sweet and tastes like an alcoholic cream soda. Nice little sour note on the finish.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2014 Orange-golden hue, dense white head, excellent lace. Cinnamon, vanilla, cookie dough, cream cheese icing, milky-sweet, Belgian yeast fruitiness. This is exactly how I wanted it to be. Splitting a bottle proved very enjoyable.
