Drank straight out of the bottle poured a little out to check out color and appearance. Pours black with a slight amount of white, with a tint of brown, lacing. Dissipates quickly. Not many bubbles appearing in the actual body of the beer. Smell is overpoweringly vanilla. I can't pick up much of anything else. A coffee flavor fills the back out the throat when drinking then just like the smell an overpowering vanilla taste, probably because "vanilla extract" is used according to the bottle. It taste like just that, someone poured a bit of vanilla extract in the beer. Slight amount of malts, no real appearance of bitterness.

As a side note I let this beer sit for a couple of minutes after opening and the carbonation was almost completely gone.
