22oz bottle with an Enjoy By date of the Ides of March 2014. Pours a dark brown with some ruby hues and an inch of frothy khaki head. Some lacing. The aroma is smokey and earthy. Vanilla is the most prevalent. The taste is a mix of vanilla, chocolate, coffee and hints of smoke. Reminds me of a cookie. Lots of vanilla and chocolate flavor. Not much of an alcohol presence. Lots of carbonation. Drinkable with the vanilla flavor not being too overpowering. More of the smoke comes out at the finish. I'm a big fan of the normal version but this one is good as well. Overall, worth having again.

On draft at Churchkey in D.C.

Dark brown appearance with a dense, towering, beige head. The aroma brings prominent vanilla, pretty much dominating the scent. The flavor is primarily vanilla. Smoke gets lost a bit here. Pretty sweet throughout. Some bitterness in the finish, even a bit rough on the palate. This was alright.
