Draught at BLAH. Pours brown with a small, frothy off-white head, short retention. Aroma is spicy and earthy coffee, chocolate and roast malt with vanilla notes. Flavor is spicy and earthy coffee, chocolate, medium roast malt, sweet vanilla and a sweet finish. Medium-full body and medium carbonation.

Bomber poured into a pint glass, dark brown with tan head. Taste of roasted coffee, vanilla bean, cocoa nibs, dark fruit and graham cracker. Nice tasting beer would recommend to my friends!

blipp (9691) - La Mesa, California, USA - FEB 13, 2016
Draft. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Sweet toffee malts, hazelnut, vanilla, mild-moderate roasted coffee, moderate sweetness, and just a touch of bitterness. Not bad.

Bottle. It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of coffee, vanilla, malts, cocoa and caramel. The taste was similar to the aroma with more coffee, vanilla, cocoa and some roastiness. Good stuff.

vyvvy (6731) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Pours nut brown with a good sized beige head. The aroma has lots of vanilla, milk chocolate, toasty malt and lager smoothness. It has a medium body with a good amount of carbonation that has a bite. The taste starts with with chocolatey roasty malt, rich vanilla and light spice. The finish has some roasted coffee bitterness and darker chocolate. Pretty solid.

brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 26, 2015
On tap @ Taps Barrel House. Lighter brown color with some tan/khaki foam. Light roasted malt and coffee nose. Sort of a vanilla extract note to it as well as some cream soda. Sort of a high carbonation to this one. Has kind of a coffee grounds bitterness that I don’t really like very much. Maybe a hint of spicy coffee, too.

Very smooth and flavorful. Different style of beer but well worth the try. Solid beer.

2.8
Oscbert (1319) - Lincoln, California, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Strong coffee and chocolate roasty malt aroma. Pours a very dark brown with ruby tints and a small lasting creamy yellowish head Vanilla is strong in flavor with bitter coffee, cocoa nibs and grainy malts. Medium bodied with medium CO2, lingering bready grainy finish that isn't very pleasant. Eh, it's drinkable. I like the idea. Just didn't come together well. Maybe get rid of the coffee. The lingering aftertaste is off settling ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very light coffee cocoa bean smell, not much of a vanilla or anything else smell, the taste is as stated a mix of a few different coffee bean, vanilla beans, almost like an off kind of bitter, a little spicy chocolate. Not a great beer, around average.
