Enjoyed at Jack's Abby, poured into a tasting glass.

Appeared a very light, cloudy golden color with a jet white nitro-induced head.

Smell was very mild. Slight chocolate teddy-graham smell. Almost a whipped cream like scent to it as well.

At first taste I wasn't too into it, but as I let the precious liquid roll around on my tongue a bit I became more impressed. It is very subtle, but you can truly pick out the chocolate, vanilla, and custard-like qualities in this one. Very unique - haven't tasted anything like this one before.

Mouthfeel was very light, but that's what they are going for.

Interesting beer for sure. I'd like it to have a little more "oomph" though I believe they hit it exactly how they wanted it given the style. The flavor grew on me quite a bit and writing this is making me salivate for more...oh dear.
