Notes/Commercial Description:
Vanilla Tree is a Belgian-style dubbel brewed with a variety of dark crystal malts and dark Belgian candi syrup. After fermentation, the beer is aged on whole vanilla beans and toasted oak chips. The result is a wonderfully smooth, malty ale with notes of dark fruit, spice, and (naturally) vanilla and oak!

3.04/5  rDev -10.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

A - Pours a dark cloudy brown body with a little fizzy head or not much at all.

S - vanilla, oak & dark fruits. I was thinking subdued vanilla with a dubbel backbone.

T - Very metallic to me. The taste follows the smell.

B - Light bodied carb on all accounts. Seems undercarbed to me.

O - I like what this brewery does. But, this beer isn't dialed in at all.
