Tap. Pours hazy amber with thin, creamy off-white head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is vanilla, brown sugar, molasses, figs, caramel malt, and light floral hops; strange light cigarette smoke notes. Flavor is heavy vanilla and sweet malt with fruit esters toward the end; finish is initially sweet but leaves a lingering chalky finish. Medium body, low carbonation, and medium warmth.
