4.03/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Clear light brown/copper color with modest cream head that dissipates into spotty lacing.

Oak, vanilla, fresh cut grass, resin, and a bit of citrus form the initial aroma.

Vanilla, oak, resin, and bitter hops complement significantly sweet caramel malt backbone. The balance is bitter, but caramel sweetness alleviates the brutality.

Body is moderate to a tad light, with moderate carbonation and significant alcohol warmth.

Great variation of a great beer, though the vanilla is slightly overwhelming.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at Vinsetta Garage

Pours a brown-amberish color with a small cream head. Smell is vanilla, oak and carmel malts. Taste has lots of vanilla compared to the original and some added carmel and toffee notes. Medium mouthfeel with a lower amount of carbonation. Overall it is very good, if you like the original and vanilla you will love this one.
