A - Pours a nearly pitch black with one finger of creamy head and sticky lacing. Slowly subsides to a decent cap and lacing.

S - Heavy coffee and roasted malt with a hint of vanilla. The aroma turns to chocolate as it warms up.

T - Sweet vanilla and burnt toffee at first turning to a lightly bitter coffee on the swallow. Bitterness continues through the aftertaste with the mildest amount of vanilla. Gains a bit of chocolate flavor as it warms up. Really tastes like cream soda mixed with a porter, in a good way.

M - Medium body and carbonation.

O - I was not expecting a cream soda flavored beer, but was happy with what I drank. Nice depth to both the aroma and flavor, changing as the beer warmed. Heavier body would be nice, but no real complaints.

i had this for the first time last year and remember really liking it. i went and grabbed a 6 pack recently and am enjoying one right now. it really really smells like vanilla. it goes down a little bit like soda, but not in a bad way. i guess i just mean the carbonation is soda-like. it's very easy to drink.

it's not some kind of earth shattering revelation of a beer but it is very enjoyable and i think it's well done for what it is supposed to be.

i will continue buying this.
