    Pours opaque. An inch plus of beautiful mocha foam covers. Retention is great. The foam thickens, creaming up as it recedes. No lacing up front but thick rings cling to the sides occasionally. Great looking beer in the glass.

    Aroma is vanilla and sweet. The sweet eventually lead to the milk sugar, yielding a creamy sweetness. Sweetened, white chocolate scents are there as well. No coffee as the can states.

    Taste doesn't let me down. Similar but not a acute to the sense as the nose. Vanilla is there throughout. Awesome. White chocolate, caramel, and a thick, sticky sweetness all add complexity and interest.

    Full body. Above average carbonation. Sticky yet dry finish. Not hints of alcohol but a zing to the back of the tongue that lingers.

    This is a solid beer. Better than that. The vanilla is well done and spread equally well throughout the experience without over powering. Where is the coffee? I don't know if it would make this beer much better. Enjoy!
