UPDATED: JAN 11, 2014 Bottle share thanks to drewface. Aroma of peanut butter. And chocolate. And fudge. Pretty complex. Taste is a bit sweet but has an underlying tartness. Flavor is completely opposite of the aroma. Not bad but not gr8
Rerate. Much better than the infected

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Blind Tiger with Brendan. Pours a hazy orange amber body with no head or lacing. Aroma is super hot bourbon and some mild vanilla in the back. Mouthfeel is thick and syrupy with notes of bourbon alcohol up front dominating, followed by vanilla, oak, chocolate, honey and maple. The flavors actually worked somewhat together, however the overall booze-dominated character really crippled this for me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle shared by b3shine (more times since). Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. I had a different picture for this beer going in. The aroma is as advertised; wonderful white chocolate, vanilla, caramel, light cherry like fruits and some alcohol. The flavor is almost over the top sweet, but it works for this beer, White chocolate, vanilla, light cherry fruity notes,caramel, and sometimes comes off as boozy. I don’t mind sweeter beers, but would not want to have a full one of these myself.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber. Sampling session at Lefty’s place. Mild nose of light chocolate, vanilla, strained peaches, powdered sugar, and fumes. Medium straw color, no head. Sweet milky initial, with some tangy oranges and pineapple / mild sweetness in mid (wheat?), and the chocolate and vanilla drop out / finishes with a bit of alc. burn and mild fruity sweetness. Not really recognizable as a wheat wine. But full of marvelous flavors. Great.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Josh! Sunburst amber and copper with orange, completely opaque. Not much of a head, soapy white and quick to disperse to a broken collar. Aroma is huge & sweet. Rich chocolate cake drizzled with sweet vanilla morsels, some moderate caramel and toffee sweetness, a very light boozy aspect... Very delicate & dessert-like. Taste is sweet, but not cloying at all. Sweet milk chocolate & fudge cake, sticky vanilla, light toffee, caramel, mild bourbon undertaking but very manageable. Light oak, cocoa & vanilla bean finish. Very nice & delicate stuff here. Lots of people complain this is too sweet, boozy, messy, etc., but those are the same people who go nuts for Chocolate Rain & BB9K. Lolwut? I love vanilla, so maybe I’m overstating, but this beer was very enjoyable for me.
