On tap at Ritual Brewing Company in Redlands, CA.

Thanks to Adrienne for this one.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and vanilla bean aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, vanilla, and char flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a solid vanilla bean presence but the flavor is more char than vanilla.
