beastmaster's rating

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 12/20
beastmaster (381) - Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2013
On tap. Thick head like you’d find on a Guinness. Wood brown body with a vanilla extract aroma that is overpowering. Yates like a vanilla cream soda with the frothy root beer float head. Not a typical beer but that may be due to the nitro. Sticky lacing. Palate is a little lacking in anything other than vanilla.

Draft at Growler USA. Reddish brown, with vanilla nose and sweet vanilla caramel taste. Bittersweet finish.

jsporrer (1028) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2017
Pours a clear caramel brown with a thick foamy off white head. Light cocoa powder aroma. Very smooth and thin body with a light cocoa taste. Flavors are fairly weak and it feels too thin to be that enjoyable. Nothing special.

djd07 (14496) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 9, 2017
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy dark amber with medium creamy off white head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is dark fruit, vanilla, toffee. Medium body, oak, vanilla, roast, dry finish, good.

DialSquare (5029) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 30, 2016
On tap at the source: Copper brown big fluffy cream colored head. Lightly sweet bready, nutty, oak, vanilla. Even, nice.

boto (2211) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - NOV 3, 2016
Draught @ Top Hops Bottle Shop: This one pours a clear amber color. There was a huge tan head on it. The aroma was good. Some oak and vanilla, as well as some malts. The taste is also very good. Caramel malt, vanilla and oak notes to the flavor. Very creamy texture.

k0mpsa (2965) - Tuusula, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2016
Tap at cigar city, tampa. Dark copper color, white head. Aroma has vanilla, burnt wood, some malts. Balanced sweet caramel malty body, fruits, oak, some vanilla. Pretty nice.

glennmastrange (2868) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2016
Tap, nitro. Moderate cereal, light bread and roasted for the malt, light herbs for the hops, dough for the yeast, with faint dried fruit and toffee in the background. Head is average sized, creamy, off-white, with good lacing and is fully lasting. Color dark red/brown. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and slightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, creamy, with a soft carbonation. An excellent Irish Ale made even better by being charged with nitrogen.

MrHangover (4549) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2016
Draft. Pours a clear dark blonde beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is very malty, hints of toast, caramel and sweet toffee. Flavor is a bit herbal, takes some getting used to, but turns out fairly bittersweet, hints of cinnamon and allspice, sweet caramel again. Quite nice, interesting beer.

I had this at Brass Tap. Pours dark reddish brown with a thick white head. Taste vanilla, sweet, caramel. I thought this was pretty good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
