A double dose of vanilla derived from both fresh Bourbon barrels and the trio of Tongan, Ugandan, and Mexican whole vanilla beans is complemented by the essences of chocolate, caramel and molasses to round out this luxurious silky stout.

    This sounds good. I am, however, getting burnt out on all of the beers that sound good and then are a let down. A lot of breweries are taking advantage of the fact that people are obsessed with adjunct stouts right now and will buy any shit beer that says it has vanilla in it. If you say there is vanilla, let’s taste the fucking vanilla! End rant.

      I agree with you. The vanilla is really never that obvious. Not sure where you’re from Eric Carter, but you should look up Gonzo’s BiggDogg Brewing and try their Vanilla Porter. The vanilla in there is so strong that’s a majority of what you smell and there’s a strong vanilla flavor as well. It’s pretty fantastic.
