sound67 (644) - Offenbach, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2016
[GBBF 2016, Olympia] - Bingham ’s Vanilla Stout, 5%. Dunkelbraun, fast schwarz. Schmale, sämig beige Krone. Vanille, dunkle Schokolade und Kaffee im Aroma, leicht süßlich. Mittlerer Körper, noch etwas wässrig. Kräftiger Kaffee und süße Vanille im Antrunk, dazu Gewürze. Zur Mitte immer noch Mischung aus Süsse und Bitterkeit. Finish milder Kaffee, im Nachhaltigkeit wieder Vanille und Kaffee. Ausgewogenes, gehaltvolles Stout, das noch etwas mehr Körper vertragen könnte. Championship Beer of Britain 2016.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2016 Cask at the Hope Tap, Reading. Black with a thin beige head. Light fizz. Vanilla is obvious in the whiff, and I was afeared this may be unbearably sweet. But no- it’s well balanced by the roasty malts and heavy coffee notes of the underlying stout. Incredibly smooth and silky. I love Binghams Doodle Stout and this is a great variant of it (unlike the hot dog version). Like a vanilla latte mixed with the flavour of a creme caramel dessert, but with the sweetness checked just enough by a sprinkling of dark roasted coffee beans and a hint of wood. Nice. Really nice. Possibly even be better than the original version. A superb stout.

imdownthepub (13070) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2015
Cask conditioned at Fleetwood Beer Festival ’15. Black with cream head. Well there is certainly vanilla in this one, aroma and taste are full of it, an ice-cream sundae of a dark beer. There is a darkly roasted element, drying chocolate malts, hints of bittering, but perhaps the vanilla is just a little too prevalent for me, good though.

Cask at WHOAF 2014, London. It pours a deep brown color with a small beige head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is vanilla notes, quite sweet and rich with chocolate cake and light roasted malts. Taste is quite sweet, again vanilla notes, more dark chocolate and light wood and leather notes. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, nice one
