On tap at the brewpub in Lexington.
Small, weak and sticky off-white head over a dark red-orange-brown body.
Smells great, with penty of vanilla mixing with toasted malts. Smells very sweet; candy sweet, so its a relief it is not as sweet as suggested. Still, a bit too sweet for general consumption, but a good option as a dessert beer.

Low carbonation and near medium body; perhaps a bit under-carbonated. Smooth.

Excellent job at K.I.S.S. & delicious! I feel too many beers try too hard. This beer does not!

Silky brown in the glass there was a nice off white fluffy head.

The scent is lightly chocolate with some dry maltiness. Touches of bread or cracker compliment the malts but are distant.

The taste is fairly one dimensional but a very good dimension it is. Chocolate fudge brownie dominates a slightly watery finish. The chocolate fudge is pervasive and delightful and makes this an absolute must if you visit Country Boy.

Poured from a growler into a pint glass. This is an American Brown ale brewed with bourbon-infused vanilla beans. The beer has a murky, dark brown color with a solid 3 fingers of head that slowly die down to some nice lacing. Lots of vanilla on the nose, as well as some rich malty notes of fresh bread and hazelnuts.

The beer has a medium body with a somewhat firm feel (appropriate for the style) and a mild, slightly sweet flavor. The vanilla definitely shows itself with the malt, making for a very nice flavor combination. I don't get much bourbon, but didn't really expect it. Despite the vanilla flavor, the beer does not taste excessively sweet. Rather, you get a nice balance between sweet malt, vanilla, and herbal hops. The finish is rather short-lived, but I suppose that's common for the style.

Overall, a very nice beer. It's a brown ale that tastes and smells like vanilla - what's not to like? The only thing holding this beer back is the style. An imperial version of this would be devastating. Still, I do like brown ales and this one respects the style while skillfully infusing flavor into it.
