Deep black with a touch of brown to it with a medium sized dense yellowed tan head. Big vanilla on the nose, caramel sweetness. One vanilla bean per gallon, and it really comes through beautifully. The vanilla is almost overwhelming, but not quite. Sweet and full of vanilla moves into a nice bit of chocolate and just a touch of coffee. Coffee isn’t as present as in the normal Joe mama’s, which I guess speaks to just how powerful the vanilla here is. Lingers on the finish, sweet and delicate. Cream soda & vanilla milkshakes. Yummy.
