I like the name and I like the description. I had thought that it would be an imperial stout but I'm actually glad it isn't because I've never seen a non-imperial stout aged on vanilla beans.
Pours a pitch black with a small, brownish head. Looks menacing enough to drink.
Cocoa, cream, vanilla bean and coffee aromas unfold as it warms up to room temperature. Very inviting.
Wow. Vanilla bean, cream and roasted coffee mingle together, finishing in an orgasm of all three flavors. Very palatable.
Vanilla lingers the longest on my palate, followed by cream. A light, but memorable finish to an excellent beer.
I don't know about the others, but I really like this beer. It's an interesting thing to do with a regular stout and in this case, the aging compliments this stout. Check it out!!!
