Had an Imperial pint at DoG Street Pub in Williamsburg, Va. I was a little leery of it when served because the head was thin to the vanishing point. Glass not as beer-clean as it should be, perhaps? This was a nice, "treat" beer that since the one pint and some nuts constituted my entire lunch, really hit the spot.

On another day, I might have found the vanilla flavor to be too overpowering. The vanilla taste is really, really predominant. Still, it works and as my numerical ratings indicate, it is a beer that adds up to more than the sum total of its parts. I enjoyed it, but I'm not sure of the conditions under which I would order it again.

Growler filled this morning at Frugal MacDoogal in Nashville. Good carbonation. Nice aroma. Decent head & lacing for a porter. Lives up to its name with a lot of vanilla in the nose & aftertaste. Just a little more sweet than I would prefer but is probably exactly what was intended. My wife really likes this beer.

Paired with a Room 101 conjura magnum cigar that was a very good pairing.
