By no means a complete review, I had this beer recently at Todd English P.U.B. and it was unlike anything I have had before.This was a very smooth and creamy beer. Very little carbonation, similar texture to a Guinness, however it is clearly not as dark of a beer. The above image looks a little redder than what I had (I had it on tap) but it was equally opaque. Apart from the incredibly smooth texture, the taste is another standout feature of this ale. This beer has a strong vanilla taste, similar to a cream soda. It is not overtly sweet, it is equally balanced between the vanilla taste and the light carmel malts. Between the texture and taste, there is no other way to describe this other than a well balanced, smooth, creamy ale. Despite the mixed reviews on BeerAdvocate, (here) I definitely recommend trying this out and I will be looking for a retailer around town that sells it!
