500ml bottle. Poured into a Zwanze 2014 snifter 9/20/2014.

A- Dark brown body, nearly black. Looks a bit watery and not as substantial, but that's to be expected. Not particularly thick or oily. Half finger brown head that doesn't hang around for long, not much lacing. [3.75]

S- Wow. Milk chocolate, dark chocolate fudge, lots of whiskey and vanilla on the backend. This is incredible in how much vanilla there is on the backend. It's still restrained and balanced compared to the likes of BVDL but there is quite a bit of vanilla that is still complimentary to all of this. Very good smelling stuff. [4.5]

F- Milk chocolate, a bit of espresso, chocolate fudge just like in the nose. At the same time, there is a heavy whiskey flavour, with plenty of oak and barrel vanilla behind it. On top of that, there is plenty of vanilla essence to be had. Again, it's not as much vanilla as BVDL but it's definitely hard to miss. [4.25]

M- Medium bodied, not as thick as expected but smooth, silky and crisp. Very drinkable for the most part despite all the bourbon flavours- no heat is to be found. Very solid stuff. [4]

O- I think I liked the Coffee BA Framinghammer just as much as this. I really need to try more of the BA Framinghammers. These are really good beers that deserve more attention than they get. [4.25]

Bomber poured into a chalice

Pours a deep dark brown. One finger taupe lid quickly settles. Faint lacings.

Aroma of vanilla, raisins, coffee.

Taste of sweet vanilla on the tip of the tongue. Coffee in the middle. Feel the alcohol.

Smooth on the sip, very little carbonation, full body

Sweet beer, a dessert beer. Richness of a porter with the vanilla flavorinhs. Very nice.
