Another amazing Variant from the 2015 set! Tons of vanilla here on the nose and the palate but not the typical sweet sugar vanilla....nice smooth vanilla notes! Light barrel character at the finish!

There isnt really alot to write, it doesnt taste very much like vanilla. While this is a decent beer, we had it in the same lineup as ba cake, and it pales in comparison. I mean, its honestly just a barrel aged stout and not even amazing at that. Overall, did not meet hype. I mean, dont call it double vanilla if its not a vanilla bomb.

750ml bottle. Served in a stemmed glass.

Nice dark black body, oily, one finger offwhite head, fair retention, not much lacing. Smells of mild vanilla marshmallow, bourbon, chocolate and a bit of cocoa. Not too complex, but the bourbon is nice and strong. They must be using some pretty strong base spirit barrels here. Flavour is similarly heavy on the bourbon, a bit of smoke and sweet oak; mild-moderate amount of vanilla bean complements the base milk chocolate and dark fruit. Mouthfeel is medium-fuller bodied, big beer, nice moderate bourbon heat on the finish.
