Had just a sample of this. I was amazed how much vanilla came thru. Very sweet. Hard to believe it was beer. Glad I did not get a pint. Too sweet for me. Nice color with a white head and nice lacing in the sample glass. Might be good for a dessert beer.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Draught at Thirsty Bear, San Fransisco.
Big bubbels and off white head. Solid golden color. Totally domminated by the vanilla aroma, way too much.
Taste of vanilla custard blended with water. Some residual sweetness. This is hopefully the only time I drink such a beer.

Tap at the brewpub. The look is dark golden in color, off white head. The smell is heavy vanilla, light malt, and ok. The taste is vanilla, cream, soda, and ok. One note.

Draft Flight 3/23/05 (Brewery)-Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of vanilla. Taste of vanilla. This light to medium bodied brew is not bad if you like vanilla but not much else going on.

Interesting. Pours an ugly clear yellow. Smells just like s'mores. Tastes like s'mores upfront, but then falls flat. Had on tap at the brewery.

The vanilla comes through well, giving it a sweet effect. Quite nice, but perhaps not drinkable in large quantities.

Nothing to write home about but smooth tastes like vanilla and not afraid to compete with

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Thirsty Bear Brewing Company, San Francisco. Rated on 13.10.2012.
Pours a golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of really strong vanilla and candi syrup. Flavour is completely taken over by the vanilla. Notes of sweet sweet marshmallow, candisyrup and hay as well. Light bodied and smooth mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Quite an unique beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden orange pour with a white head. Vanilla and cream soda on the nose with a strong grainy note. Mild grass and some water, maybe a little yeast. Flavor is sweet from the vanilla. A bit of cream soda, some grainy sweetness, mild bitterness, and a definite grassy hop flavor. Kind of watery, too.

Draught @ Thirsty Bear Brewing, San Francisco. Rated on 19.07.2012
Aroma has lots of vanilla and hints of fruits. Flavour is dominated by vanilla. It has also some hay and wheat. Quite odd – but somehow I like it.
