COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One way to describe this beer is a dark beer for people who dont like dark beers. Another way is delicious. Notes of cocoa, espresso, and delicately roasted barley blend nicely with real Mexican vanilla from Arizona Vanilla Company. This medium bodied, highly sippable beer is quickly becoming a local favorite.

mcberko (16651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2017
On tap at Borderlands, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out notes of vanilla, light cinnamon, and lactose. Flavour is very bizarre, with notes of cinnamon and vanilla upfront, with a dirty earthy character that clouds everything up. Needs some tweaking, as this doesnt taste optimal.

Draft. Poured a black color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate roasted dark malt and vanilla aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate long duration. This is the good brew.

djd07 (13711) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Can. Pours a very dark brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong vanilla and chocolate. Thin mouthfeel with rich chocolate, sweet vanilla, good.

Lubiere (13566) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2013
A dark brown porter with a thin brown head. In aroma, a smooth chocolate malt with milk, coffee, and coconut. In mouth, a sweet grassy and herbaceous chocolate with vanilla, mocha, very sweet but not overbearing.

slowrunner77 (11487) - Reno, Nevada, USA - DEC 2, 2016
Pours very dark with dark chocolate head. Aroma and flavor of spiced vanilla at first is a little heavy handed and artificial, but ends up nice. Not a lot of depth in this sweet leaning dessert beer, but its nice enough.

Damn right this is awesome! Nice dark brown pour, tan head. Aroma of vanilla, brownie batter, chocolate. Flavor is sweet, brownies, fudge, cocoa, just badass. Awesome stuff!

Tap at Pig and Pickle in Scottsdale AZ. Deep cola red looking black. Weak fizzing out foam. Nose is thicker vanilla extract, sugar, cola drink, mild plastic. Taste is moderately lactic sour, some dusty cocoa bitterness, more sweet vanilla. A tad artificial for me.

16oz can pours a murky black with a ring of white head. Nose has malt, a little berry/raisin, dusty, vanilla. Flavor is better, malt, molasses, vanilla, a little pepper, earthy. Dry finish. Weird.
