Pours a dark amber, already unlike most summer brews I've had. The head is minimal and fades quickly but bubbles continue rising from the bottom of the pint glass.
Smells sweet and slightly of honey.
Malty taste with spice and an overwhelming vanilla extract flavor. Creamy in the mouth with a slightly hoppy finish.
Easy to drink them fast since the mouthfeel is so creamy and the vanilla taste comes at the end, making you want to take another sip to taste it again. A very unique brew and unlike any other summer beer I've ever tried.
The heavy body makes it a beer I wouldn't categorize as a "summer beer" but that also differentiates it from the rest in its category. Not a light beer by any means but quite tasty.
