Glassware: Tumbler Pint
Labeled ABV: -6.0%
Date/ Code: Feb 11 - 2013
This was from a 12-pack of cans from Brewskies of New Oxford for around $13.00.
Look: The beer poured a semi-clear dark copper with a thin off-white film on top. Minimal carbonation bubbles were detected.
Smell: Sweet vanilla was at the forefront. A biscuity malt also made up a big part of the aroma. Also some faint brown sugar notes were present.
Taste: Carbonation ripped up the middle followed by sweet vanilla and some coffee bean. The vanilla did seem a little artificial. The middle was more of a biscuit quality with notes of cracker and yeast. The finish was rather dry. A candy sweetness did seem to linger into the aftertaste.
The use of vanilla in the profile and a nicely masked 6% ABV are just couple of reasons I would grab this one again.
Serving type: can
