The beer knurd at my local spec's who referred me to beeradvocate first asked if I really liked vanilla before he let me carry a six pack off. I do, and honestly there could be more in here. But for the first I've seen of the concept, this rocks.
Pours dark and thick with a good thick head. There's a whole lot of caramelized sugar in the smell, probably enhanced by the significant vanilla scent. Tastes the same too, lots of sweet caramelly (is that a word?) malt, though it could have some more vanilla. Feels slightly thick on the tongue, which is perfect for the taste, but the vanilla and carbonation work together to give it a delightfully sharp nose as you swallow. It's too thick to drink more than a couple at a time, but that's the only thing keeping me from drinking more.
