Notes/Commercial Description:
We use smoked and peated malts to create an intricate malt foundation. Our method of dry hopping with vanilla beans and oak chips pushes the depth of this stout’s flavor spectrum even further.

Appearance – This one poured a ruby dark brown in color with a nice head that showed off a cool-looking orange tan.

Smell – The traditional vanilla from American oak barrels came on big at the taste, although I’m sure it was just added vanilla extract. There was also a light stouty malt note or two, but mostly the malts were buried by the vanilla.

Taste – The vanilla/oak was AWOL at the taste, which was OK because that allowed the other wonderful flavors to come out more. The dark malts and light chocolate were nicely complimented by a fruity sweetness.

Mouthfeel – This Stout was light to medium in the body and very well put together.

Drinkability – This wasn’t bad. It was very different for sure. It is an interesting interpretation of the style and a “must try” for any serious BA.

Comments – A big, huge thanks to skyhand for not only putting together the BA tasting night but also for supplying this gem.
