On tap at EBF in Boston, MA.

This one pours a fairly dark black, with no real head or lacing, maybe a few spots here and there.

Smells so richly, strongly, and wonderfully of vanilla beans, there's a ton here, clearly. I also get chocolate and bourbon tones pretty strongly.

I think this one possibly beats out Vanilla Rye. It's got a less syrupy, molasses-like flavor, and more just pure vanilla and barrel character. There's some oak, chocolate, and bourbon, but the main story is all about the vanilla. Delicious.

This is thick bodied, but not syrupy in the mouthfeel, luckily. There's a lower level of carbonation, and a really nice drinkability.

This was definitely one of the stars of the weekend, super tasty.
