This guy is good!

Ap - Deep chestnut brown body with an almond color head that settles to a thin ring around the edge, and an even thinner film on top of the beer. Nice lace all the way down.

Ar - Vanilla beans. Almost like a vanilla ice cream.

T - Vanilla. There's a subtle hint of the base beer's roasty, coffee notes as it warms a bit.

M - Creamy, perfect carbonation, and not too dry or sweet. It's almost too easy to drink.

O - The coffee isn't as prevalent as the base beer. That may be a good or bad thing depending on how you feel about either coffee or vanilla. I think this is a knock out.
