Reviewed November 16, 2011 late into the night. Poured a 12 oz bottle into a JFF is my BFF novelty Pint glass.
A: Poured a great creamy 1 1/2 fingered head. The body is a standard dark black with red shading around the edges.
S: I'm starting off right now that I could barely smell anything coming off of this, almost muted, and what I do smell is not strong. It has a standard sweetness maltiness. After attempting to pick additional smells off of this for at least 2 minutes I finally picked up its promised vanilla, maybe it just emerges as this warms up.
T: A nice light coffee comes and it definitely stays along for quite a bit. Nice roasted malts make an appearance at the end and this is your aftertaste. I smell the vanilla while drinking, but I still don't taste it.
M: The head adds a nice creaminess to this drink. The carbonation almost dances on the tongue. Body feels medium.
O: I had this drink once out of a bottle and was disappointed by it, but this time around I was really surprised by it. I didn't pick up anything of vanilla and so this is why this drink will get bad marks from, it simply promised something that it did not have and if it did it was really muted.
