Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a really interesting vanilla bean aroma with malt mixed into the smell.
Appearance- Has a great reddish tint with a very small white head.
Taste- You can taste the vanilla and malt, I really enjoyed it.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with light carbonation. It had an oily texture and didn't have an aftertaste.
Overall- An interesting beer, I liked it. I don't think I could sit and pound them one after another but it has a really good unique flavor.

It's not bad, good undertones of chocolate but at times the vanilla gives off a nasty alcohol after taste.
