look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body. Doesn't appear as inky and black as previous batches. Small khaki head and a wispy surface.

Smell - Vanilla. Smoke. Weird combination. It comes off as like a spruce aroma. Dark chocolate.

Taste - Vanilla all over. That very strange woody pine flavor is back and very dominant. Smoke. Chocolate. Tastes like a Christmas drink. Weird finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Boozy. Well carbonated.

Overall - It's really weird. I can't figure out how the addition of vanilla has caused such an odd combination of flavors.
