Pours hazy amber brown with a mild head that dissipates quickly. The aromas remind me of the light smell of baking chocolate cupcakes, when you can smell them from the other room, with some roasted vanilla thrown in. Has a good roasted malty flavor. You can definitely pick up the vanilla, along with a little bit of a ground pepper flower taste. Nicely carbonated and smooth in the mouth, but leaves a lingering bitter aftertaste.

Overall, I like this beer a lot. The natural comparison, I think, would be to Stone's Smoked Porter w/ Vanilla Bean. There are many similarities between the two beers, but I like this version more. This has more of a rich and hearty taste, when compared to Stone's newly bottled version.

Please note: When adding this beer, I added the availability as rotating. I'm not sure if that's true, as I couldn't find the availability on their website. Please adjust if necessary.
