wedgie9 (2544) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Tasted at the late night tasting after the Grand Tasting at RBWG Asheville. Pours thick, oily black with a thin tan head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is tons of vanilla bourbon, with traditional milk and dark chocolate malty imperial stout. The flavor is really more focused on the bourbon, fairly sweet vanilla, fudge brownie, really bourbon forward. The body is full with light carbonation and a long bourbon and brownie finish. Very nice.

Poured a dark brown with a beige head. Almost the same as the regular, a bit thin and muddled, but vanilla does give an added sweetness which is appreciated.

Bottle shared at Gaucho thanks to Rob. Pours a dark brown black with a slight brown head that quickly fades. Aromas of vanilla pound cake, chocolate fudge. Aroma reminds me of vanilla rye but slightly subdued. Taste is semi sweet. Body is a tad thin for what I was expecting.

Black. Oak barrel with roasted malt and authentic vanilla bean flavors, not the aroma. Amazing! Some chocolate and light coffee notes as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogbrick (10436) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Inky black pour with a medium foamy tan head that diminishes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of vanilla, chocolate malt and coffee. Full-bodied with flavors of sweet vanilla, chocolate, roast malt and coffee. The finish is mildly boozy vanilla coffee and sweet chocolate. Good beer all around.
