WOB, Coconut Creek, FL. Malty, well balanced hops. Vanilla is subtle, which is good. I've had other vanilla infused beers that had so much vanilla that they were cloying.

Tap at Buckeye, if you like vanilla and southern tier stouts this might be right up your alley, tons of vanilla sweetness and little else, still I enjoyed it in small quantities the lightness of the bourbon is a welcome change.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the Studio 35 Barrel Aged Beer / Slap Shot screening on 02/10/2013. Pours a dark brown color with a medium tan head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing. The aroma consists of butterscotch, malt and slight bourbon. Medium body with flavors of roast malt, vanilla, butter and oak. The finish is mildly boozy with a short vanilla aftertaste. Unmemorable overall.
