12 oz. Near black pour, thin layer of light tan head. Retains ok and laces the glass just a bit.

Aroma, Chocolates and vanilla. Lesser roast malt.

Taste, Vanilla up front. More roast malt here. Cocoa and a little coffee in the slightly dry finish.

Clean and easy drinking, not overly done with the vanilla. Medium body and a medium amount of carbonation. Maybe just a tad thinner than preferred, but that helps the drinkability.
Not bad at all.

Appearance: very dark brown, not quite opaque. Some cola highlights. Modest tan head.
Smell: subtle vanilla, but up front. Not a lot else happening but a nice nose.
Taste: much like the nose. Vanilla is prominent but not overdone.
Overall: very smooth. Easy drinker. Doesn't knock your socks off but well done.
