4.88/5  rDev +11.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Date: 3/29/14
Location: Cambridge Whole Foods
Glassware: Tulip
Appearance: Black to Dark Brown with a brown carbonation which quickly evaporates. There is a small viscous ring at the edge of the beer.
Aromatics: So many wonderful smells in here. The bourbon, some woods and grains. The vanilla with coffee makes my mouth water.
Flavor: The bourbon has a big presence with the vanilla. Still getting a lot of wood flavor. The mouthfeel is very oily but great.
Finish: The alcohol plays a part in the finish along with the oil and carbonation left on the tongue.
Notes: This beer is dangerously drinkable. Before I knew it my glass was empty, then the bottle and I nearly considered opening my second bottle.

Serving type: bottle

4.81/5  rDev +10.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

16.9 oz Bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Like the standard BA Framinghammer. Again, rich, dark, brown with a frothy tan head that actually hangs around for a bit.

Smell: Sweet vanilla bean, bold and up-front, chocolate, coffee, bourbon are also right there but all behind the dominant vanilla.

Taste: Just like the nose, vanilla bean over mocha mixed with some oaky bourbon. All flavors playing off of one another and working perfectly together. I'm a vanilla fan as long as it's not cloying or over-done (like creme brulee is over-done for example), and this beer strikes the perfect balance.

Mouthfeel: Again, excellent body, and very, very, smooth.

Overall: My favorite of the BA Framinghammer family. Exceptional beer!

4.78/5  rDev +9.4%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

A- Pours very dark black with a thick mocha head

S- Similar regular BA Framinghammer, but with an assault of waves of vanilla. There is a touch of dark roast and bitter chocolate in the background, but the vanilla notes are something special

T- This seems to have come together quicker than the coffee; the taste replicates the nose incredibly well as you are assaulted with vanilla flavor. combined with the creamy mouthfeel, this is similar to some sort of beer milkshake. Awesome, but like with the coffee there is some heat to it and that is what keeps it from a 5 for me

M- I have a feeling they may have used cold pressed coffee for the other and that may have let to the thinner mouthfeel because this beer has the same, amazing creamy feel the BA framinghammer had.

O- Fantastic beer and a must try. Some aging could mellow out the alcohol heat and there is soo much vanilla going on, I think it will take quite a bit before it starts fading too much. Amazing beer and can't wait for more

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Pours black, with very little head. Leaves a nice creamy tan film on top, with bubbles clinging to the side. Smells a bit sweet. Vanilla dominates, with chocolate and bourbon. Mouthfeel is very creamy and smooth. Vanilla is the dominate flavor, of course. Chocolate and bourbon take a backseat to the vanilla but they all mix really well. Really happy this isn't too sweet. Really great beer.
