2014 mini-rereview: bottle tasted like vanilla extract compared with '13. Bottle #2
2013 bottle #535
A- Black motor oil viscous with faint yellow
S- So much vanilla and marshmallow. Bourbon background, fig, caramel in background.
T- By far the biggest vanilla that I have ever had out of any beer. You have to drink this one fresh. I can't imagine how aging does anything for this beer. My favorite BB Stout that I have had. Where Chocolate Rain has the vanilla, but it goes overboard on the sweetness diabetes; this beer is just right.
M- Nothing too special here. Run of the mill top tier BA Stout feel.
O- Definitely worth a try once in your lifetime. Would I go back for another bottle? Probably not due to what it takes to get this bottle, and the fact that you can't age this beer in your cellar; but worth the try just on the vanilla aspect itself.
