look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2.5

A-Pours a thick finger of tan bubbly foam that laces the pint glass. Clear brown with reddish tint.

S-Rich caramel barley malt, with a heavy vanilla bean aroma.

T-Sweet malt with definite bourbon vanilla taste.

M-Thin malt body yet has an almosty syrupy, solvent alcohol mouthfeel. A bit of a bitter finish.

O-This beer has real potential but feels out of balance. Too much vanilla, lacks that nice malt backbone and creamy mouthfeel.

Pours to a tan head with large bubbles and clear dark brown color with noticeable lacing. Aroma is coffee, caramel, chocolate and vanilla with some malt and hops in the background. Flavor is a pleasant blend of roasty malt and balancing hop bitterness with a noticeable dose of vanilla. Mouthfeel is light and CO2 is moderate. Overall an enjoyable drink for those who love coffee drinks with vanilla.
