This was given to me at the brewery in a beer trade. Told it was never released to the public. Simply the original Pothole, aged on vanilla beans. No idea when it was brewed or how long it was aged on the vanilla.

A - Black pour with one finger of tan head that faded fast. Spotty lace and a half finger of retention.

S - Vanilla! Sweetness. Maybe some mild sugar. Milk chocolate. It's pretty basic, but it's hard not to like.

T - Less vanilla but still very much there. Roasty. Sweet. Milk chocolate. Nice.

M - Medium carbonation, finish is sweet but quite dry. Medium to full body.

O/D - The vanilla has really taken over this beer. But it's definitely enjoyable, drinkable, and pleasant. A good addition to the base beer.
