4.04/5  rDev +2.3%

Bottled 012713. Tulip glass.

A: Pours black with a half inch of sturdy, light brown head which recedes fairly soon to a ring. Pretty good retention and a few dots and streaks of lacing.

S: Dark chocolate and vanilla meld very tightly with a little roastiness, and a touch of coffee.

T: Roasted malt and vanilla are the most prominent flavors, with the vanilla integrated well, and a bit of coffee. Fairly dry and a longish finish featuring the coffee and light roastiness.

M: Medium body and medium, biting carbonation which mellows out and smoothens with time in the glass. Alcohol is well hidden.

O: Pretty drinkable. They managed to hit a good level of vanilla without overdoing it, and to integrate it well with the base beer. That being said, the vanilla can be a bit fatiguing in moderate quantities.
