Milk chocolate, Cuban espresso and fudge greet the nose of this vanilla-laden treat. A viscous palate boasts flavors of cacao, chocolate macaroons and treacle with several types of vanilla muting any heavy roast character and adding even more body to the beer. Moderate carbonation and a snappy coffee-like quality help cut through sweetness and balance this formidable beer.
