3.81/5 rDev -12%
Appearance: Like the other Framinghammers, an impressive bubble show and appearance; dark brown with a couple of inches of tan foam
Smell: A rather odd aroma, certainly filled with coffee but also rather ashy
Taste: Milk coffee forward, with some chocolate and smoke building in the middle; some Bourbon influence, after the swallow, but the finish moves in a sweeter, brown sugar direction
Mouthfeel: Full bodied and creamy, with moderate carbonation; a bit of a burn in the gullet from the ABV
Overall: To my surprise, the Vanilla Framinghammer was my favorite by a country mile; I had high hopes here but this one just is a bit too sharp in its contrasts for my palate
Thanks, mj0126, for the opportunity

A: served into a snifter. Nive dark brown color. Lets some light through around the edges. Half inch of tanish head dissapates to a nice ring around the glass with a few bubble patterns floating in the middle. Lacing always drops back down to the ring. Doesnt stick.
S: gave it some time to warm up. Alcohol funneling to the nose. Roastiness and dark chocolate in the distance. When this was fresh out of the fridge it was very coffee forward, but it mellows out.
T: when cold, coffee forward with chocolate and roastiness in the background, but now that it warmed i like it better. Smooth coffee flavor with a good mix of chocolate and a little vanilla in the background. Alcohol and bitter chocolate in the aftertaste.
M: lighter on the tongue than i would have imagined. Roastiness and microbubbles tingle on the tongue a little. Coats the mouth nice. Very smooth. Great finish.
O: Great beer. Love the body on the beer. Strong flavors that might mellow out with some age. Alcohol on the nose is a bit much. Thankfully doesnt translate to the taste very much. Still think i like the original framinghammer the best.

Just finished a fantastic beer received from mjg0725, so I had to go for another to try to keep the winning streak alive. 500ML bottle split with my coffee-addicted wife.
The pour hits the right shade of black, with just a hint of Van Helsing around the edges. Nose is light. I'd have guessed this was just light roast if I hadn't seen the label, pretty subdued, to go along with flakes of sweet malt.
Coffee Framinghammer has some serious barista roots. Coffee kicks it up in there, but puts down the cappachine & back away to let the beer breathe. Great sweetness cuts into the roast (must be the shady sugar), aided by a trapdoor of chocolate, vanilla, & a surprising lilt of bitterness for a finale. Tastes...deep. Ridiculously rich. Couldn't be sucking this down faster if I had a near-fatal caffeine withdrawal headache coming on.
Didn't believe the Framinghammer hype. I have another variant & if that one is this good, I'll be a full-blown Believer. Excellent beer.

Looks like Framinghammer (no surprise) - dark with ruby highlights, fine tan/brown cap, lacing. Lots of coconut in the aroma, some roast and coffee, chocolate and malt, slight alcohol. Less coconut in the flavour, moderate bitterness with cocoa and malt, alcohol and chocolate, mild coffee and roast, balanced sweetness. Nice texture, creamy and smooth, moderate carbonation and full bodied, a little warmer than regular Framinghammer. Quite good, but the coconut in the aroma was turned up a little high in the balance.

Poured into a snifter
A- pours very dark brown, nearly opaque, with a small sudsy & bubbly light-tan head that reduces to bubbles around the rim, no lace with a few legs left behind
S- lots of sweet chocolaty notes up front with a compliment of toasted coconut. brown sugar, molasses, bourbon, oaky vanilla and a shot of hazelnut espresso
T- lightly roasty, brown sugar flavors mix with a licorice-like sweetness with notes of silky oats and oaky barrel juice, alcohol on the finish with lingers of coffee, bourbon and molasses
M- medium body with low carbonation produces a crisp mouthfeel with a smooth finish, light warmth on the linger, high drinkability for 10%
O- the aroma was more impressive than the taste, but overall very good. I didn’t pick up as much coffee as expected, rather more sweetness that bitterness
