Pours a nice opaque black with some tan head and a nice medium collar. Good lacing out of this one. Aroma is really deep roasted malt, some faint coffee, and earthy too. Taste is where the vanilla comes out. Vanilla up front, char and roasted malt in the middle, then fades into a sweet dark caramel. Nice thick body and low carbonation. Very good but the whole time I felt there was just something off-putting.

Pours a dark brown color. Off white forms and retains well. Aroma of coffee and roasted malt, not so much vanilla. In the taste, vanilla, coffee, smoke and sweet malts. Quite nice and coffee like. A bit of vanilla as it warms. Nice citrus hops with mild acidity. Medium bodied, well carbonated brew with vanilla coffee and hops in the finish. Tasty brew. Through and through.
