Prairie Vanilla Noir
12oz bottle into a snifter
no bottling dates
Thanks to Narthax for sending this one over via trade
A: Pours opaque black with 1.5 fingers width of tan colored head which has good retention and leaves lots of lacing.
S: Coffee, milk chocolate, a nutty character, and lots of vanilla. Barrel notes are fairly subtle but are present with a whiskey booze aroma, and I also get some vinous dark fruit notes. Really like the big vanilla character here.
T: Chocolate, roasty, lots of vanilla. Barrel notes with oak and an almost harsh whiskey character. Some bitterness.
M/D: Full bodied, moderate carbonation, ABV well restrained but overall a bit harsh which limits drinkability.
O: Overall, not bad but a bit disappointing. Worth a try though.
Serving type: bottle
