Thanks to rudzud for sharing.

Decent creamy dark head hits almost 1 finger and fades at a med pace, some lacing pitch black beer.

Nose has some vanilla but hard to get, compared to the original I get more vanilla bean rather than just vanilla barrel. Nice light dusty oak and vanilla barrel too, plenty of dark malts, cocoa and dark choc without the heavy burnt roast, although a hint of coffee, loads of chocolate in waves.Light booze, nice vanilla too comes out more as it warms.

Taste starts with nice vanilla, this time plenty of vanilla, both vanilla bean and vanilla barrel with light dusty oak. Plenty of chocolate too, dark choc, cocoa, chocolate and vanilla ice cream with a nice creamy feel. booze comes out more than the base, and more bitterness from some earthy hops and bitter dark choc, more dark chocolate than the base too. Nice long finish, tons of bitter dark chocolate and cocoa, hint if coffee even, light vanilla barrel and some vanilla bean, and more booze lingering.

Mouth is med to fuller bodied, nice creamy feel, fairly thick, nice carb.

Overall quite nice, little boozy but great. Vanilla comes in nice with great vanilla bean and vanilla barrel, tons of choc and pretty tasty but hard to tell how much of an improvement over the original? THe more it warms the more vanilla I get too.
