Reminds me of a Guinness on nitro with a bunch of sweetness added. The sweetness reminds me of honey but it's supposed to be vanilla. Maybe the Belgian sugar burnout barrel and vanilla make it taste so sweet.

22oz, 1/30/13, Garrison Brothers edition, Bottle 37
Riedel tulip

A: Doesn't pour as dark as I thought it would be as a "dark ale". Darkish amber I guess. Looks dark brown with light coming through and reddish tint. Initially a half finger of slight off white light tan head. Sticky lacing.

S: I am actually getting some tartness on the front. Some vanilla and wood notes. Wonder if that's infection? It's slight but seems to be starting to come through, although it's still a nice nose outside of that.

T: Initially a touch of tartness up front. Very carbonated. Some creaminess. Some nuttiness. Chocolate. Not dark, but milk. Dryness. Lingering booze.

M: It's full bodied. Not as creamy as I would have thought.
