3.65/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Very dark brown body with glimmers of garnet, clearish, with a head that's just shy of being white in color.

Smell: While there is a bit of roast and dark fruitiness contained with the nose, it's like sniffing a standard edition Tootsie Roll and a Vanilla Tootsie Roll at the same time.

Taste: Dark maltiness with a chocolate, coffee (light) vibe to it with a fast hit of vanilla. Lesser malty accent of toast and caramel. Medium-plus sweetness. Faint dark fruit. Nil hop character, bitterness. Sweetish finish with the chief flavor, vanilla.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. There's an incredibly minor stickiness to the mouthfeel.

Overall: It's good, but, it's just a hair too sweet and strong on the vanilla. Still, I suppose it's better to err on the side of a bit too much vanilla as to failing to deliver any appreciable (and appreciated) vanilla flavor, like the Breckenridge iteration.

Tap from brewery. Pours dark black with white head. Aroma of vanilla and roast. Taste of vanilla and chocolate. Medium bodied. Not too shabby.
