Bottle to pint. Looks decent; a semi-transparent reddish-brown with fluffy light beige head that slowly dissipates into lacing. Smells of malt and vanilla. Tastes like it smells, but better. Solid on the palate too. This one exceeded my expectations.

Some vanilla and a light roast aroma. Pours light brown with ok head and lacing. Finishes a little bitter. Not super interesting. Average to fizzy carbonation. Tap at some bar I dont remember.

Ibrew2or3 (8477) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 20, 2014
12oz bottle pours with a mahogany to deep ruby red body that supports a thin tan head. The aroma offers up sweetness in the form of malts and vague vanilla as well as some earthy chocolate. The taste starts with malts and chocolate and then mild roasted malts and sweet malts. It gets a tad roastier to midway amid plenty of thin bodied sweetness.

drowland (8449) - Georgia, USA - NOV 6, 2012
11/6/12. 12oz bottle from Publix. Dark brown pour with a small khaki head that fades to a ring. Vanilla and alcohol in the aroma with touches of chocolate and roast. Roast and chocolate hits strong with lingering sweet vanilla. Good flavors, but lacking body and depth.

nimbleprop (8071) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 2, 2015
12oz bottle pours a murky, deep brown with some clumpy, eggshell head. Nose has, well, obviously a whole lot of vanilla, some malt, some chocolate, some pumpernickel bread. Flavor follows, loads of vanilla, molasses, chocolate, bread crust, some cream soda, but mostly lots and lots of vanilla. Full, creamy finish.

Bottle. Pours clear brown, small beige head, some lacing. Aroma is roasty, vanilla, toffee. Flavor is the same, medium sweet, obvious vanilla. Kind of like vanilla soda. Light body, soda like carb.

PorterPounder (7761) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - 12 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with a soft off-white head. Aroma has some chocolate accents, a hint of vanilla, pleasant. Flavor is decidedly sweet with some cocoa nibs, a touch of vanilla, some top soil in the back end and a hint of International Flavors instant coffee. Slick, even mouthfeel. Not a bad holiday treat.

Draft. Poured clear, medium-deep brown with a reddish tint to it. The aroma picked up heavy vanilla bean paired with lightly-smoked black malt.. sweet overall. The flavor found sweet vanilla bean and roasty black malts at the core, with bitter coffee and smoky roast around.. higher, fairly sharp acidity at times.. finished with prickly carbonation amplifying sharp-ish roast. Light-medium bodied with sharp carbonation on the palate.. I was expecting a little smoother and creamier, but it was alright.
