Notes: Nillerzzz is our barrel aged vanilla bean double stout. Fermented in stainless before aging in rye whiskey and bourbon barrels for 15 months. Our extended aging process fosters a warming spirit character, rich malt layers, oaky vanillin , and a thick luscious mouthfeel. We condition the blend on freshly scraped vanilla bean caviar from five different growing regions. Blended to drink now with your most adventurous friends and family members. Vintage 2019 Blend #2 differs from Vintage 2018 Blend #1 as it is a bit richer and has a distinct rye barrel character blended with a sweetness from the bourbon barrels. The body is thicker and more viscous with a more restrained fusel alcohol character. The vanilla beans in blend #2 are from Madagascar, Uganda, Tahiti, Tonga and Papua New Guinea.

This one awoke Raul’s senses like Adriana Lima crossing the street in a onesie - but it’s still a onesie. Adriana in a skin tight pencil skirt this is not. It’s just too thin and not robust like John Goodman as Big Dan Teague.

See you in the funny papers!

Poured pitch black with absolutely no head. At the nose is heavy vanilla, fragrance is sweet and delectable. Hard to pick up the bourbon but good nonetheless.

Then upon tasting, very heavy bourbon. Almost overwhelming and unbalanced. The vanilla is faint at first but as the more sips I take, the heavy sweet vanilla character starts to build. Faint marshmallow and vanilla bean ice cream. But I don’t know...for the hype, I kinda expected a little more sweetness (talking liquid dessert) from the vanilla and maybe less booze.

Mouthfeel more medium bodied; not super full and thick but still some richness from the flavors.

Overall: great beer! Been one of those beers I’ve wanted to try for quite a while. I would always be happy to drink this again and even make it to the next release if I could. But I admit, it was a little over hyped. I guess I had my expectations way high.
