3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good black color with large quick dissipating head. Nose of chocolate and some vanilla. Taste is strong upfront then falls off a cliff due to low alcohol and watery mouth feel. Smooth as silk finish which is also a fault of this one.
Pours midnight brown with a fine tan head. Aroma is vanilla and chocolate. Flavour backs it up with delicious roastiness. Body is wonderfully thin. Finish is roast and vanilla. DougsBeer (23) - Nebraska, USA - JUL 28, 2017

Pours a very dark brown color. Mocha colored head, poor retention, no lacing.edgallow (4211) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 21, 2017
Aroma is vanilla, light, but up front and prominent. Light coffee, coffee creamer, raisins. Brownies. Some malts, but not too much.
Taste follows the nose. Quite delicious. Coffee, brownies, raisins, vanilla.
Mouthfeel is medium light. Thin and watery. Has some grittiness, which makes me think vanilla bean ice cream. Maybe that’s not it, but it works. Smooth and creamy.
Overall, pretty tasty. A slight nudge better than the original. Very enjoyable. Yes, I recommend it and I would buy again.

Pours somewhere between brown and black, fizzy beige head, elusive. Nice aroma, very rich for the abv, deep coffee roast, caramel, earth, chocolate and vanilla galore. Thin as expected for 5% but very nice... Chocolate syrup, vanilla bean, lingering coffee bitterness. Dry finish. Solid. dfinney23 (3360) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2017

Black pour with a thin light tan head that recedes pretty quick. Delightful creamy oat-y and chocolaty vanilla cereal tone on the nose. Delightful smooth flavor that’s dark and cocoa’y with big earthy vanilla and gentle oat-y undertone. Creamy and sweet and vanilla tinged with lovely bready chocolate.
