Our vanilla stout is a full bodied stout with some malty sweetness and mild hop notes, which are generally characteristic of an imperial stout. This beer has a stronger malt flavor from chocolate and crystal malts, and American hops give this stout a little kick. Vanilla pods from Africa were added to the beer for a week to give it a warm vanilla taste and nose.

Dark black with tan cappachino colored head. Aroma of herb and vanilla, malt backbone. At 8.5%, not a session beer but a nice way to finish up the evening.

Rich vanilla on nose, full bodied with robust toasty malt which balances that rich vanilla fairly well. warming and filling this is a fireside sipper. restores faith in the brewery somewhat.
