A: Big tan head sits on a black, opaque beer. Shows good head retention and lacing.
A: Smells like roasted malts, oak wood, coffee and lightly of vanilla.

In high hopes for this beer died as soon as I poured it. The head was almost non-existent, had almost no aroma, and tasted very gland in general. Got better as it warmed up, but not at all the beer that it surely would like to be. I didn't detect even the slightest hint of the vanilla beans that were mentioned, and that was possibly the most interesting part of the description.

Had this on tap at Dulles Airport. From notes.
A - Black pour with one finger of creamy tan head. Good carbonation coming up. Spotty lace and a half finger of retention.
S - Cola, sugar, sweet dark malt, some chocolate.
T - Roast, chocolate, sweet mostly. Not too much going on.
M - Very smooth, mild carbonation, medium body. Nice.
O/D - Fairly drinkable. Not sure where the smoke or barrel are, but it wasn't too bad. Scored lower because it lacks what it advertises.
Serving type: on-tap
