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

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.

750ml bottle pours a dark gold with some creamy, white head. Nose has a ton of vanilla, almond milk, cinnamon icing, doughy. Flavor is the same, chai, clove, cinnamon cake icing, cream cheese icing, carrot cake. Creamy, spicy finish. A little too sweet but very interesting.

Pour from a bottle. Really nice beer actually. I wasn’t sure what the style was but the vanilla and sweetness was a welcomed change from the higher ABV beers we had been opening.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of GatorGuy92. Cheers, Matt! Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is huge honey and vanilla with some cinnamon and spice. Flavor is huge vanilla with some honey, cinnamon, and lactose. Very enjoyable, uber-sweet beer. I mean really sweet and vanilla forward. Medium in body and I would drink this every day; on par with the CCB Horchata, but more vanilla.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2014 Courtesy of rayl101
Bottle: The aroma consists of vanilla, fruit, and and cream. It pours a hazy dull orange with a small off-white head. The flavor is straight up white cake with vanilla frosting and a touch of cinnamon. There’s a hint of fruit. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, another Bruery dessert beer. It’s pretty tasty, but the vanilla sweetness wears on me.
