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!

Had this at Resolute day on tap. Absolutely delicious beer. Perfect amount of bourbon and just enough vanilla not to be too sweet. If you like BA stouts, you are going to love this one.

Sampled a 5 oz pour from a plastic cup on Resolute Day. I thought this was the more subtle of this years variants, both on the nose and the palate. The vanilla is certainly there, but is a more of a subtle compliment to an already great base beer. This was a very, very nice variant, but the coconut stole the show for me. I just think people were expecting more vanilla given the "double vanilla" label.

Had on draft at Resolute Day, subtle vanilla note on the nose, easy to drink and mellows the booziness of the RIS considerably. Vanilla was a bit light for a 'double' vanilla beer, but overall a great brew and knockout variant from Brothers.

Vanilla is duller spice to me, but it comes through. Vanilla from the barrel and from the beans come through adding to that natural barrel character. Not my fav spice, but it's good.
