Bottle purchased at Oliver's in Albany, NY.

Pours a clear, dark brown, with a one inch short-lasting head, and not much lacing to speak of.

Smells like burnt coffee, espresso, and vanilla beans.

The burnt coffee flavor in this is a bit much to overcome. The coffee is astringently bitter- when combined with a watery mouthfeel, it's not all that enjoyable. The vanilla is nice and adds some silky creaminess to the proceedings. As the beer warms up, the coffee flavor becomes stronger, but less astringent.

Thin body, low carbonation. Watery mouthfeel.

Not the best from Wolaver's that I've had.
