COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
From The Bruery’s What’s On Tap Weekly Emailer - 2 Turtle Doves, our winter seasonal, has been conditioning in a firkin with vanilla beans and for your enjoyment (and mine!), we’ll be serving it this Friday. I’m thinking the vanilla will be a beautiful addition to the chocolate, nutty flavors that already exist in this beer. Come down Friday and try for yourself!

On cask at the Bruery with Scott. Not really feeling this one that much. Not much of an improvement over the original, which I am not too big of a fun of too begin. Dark brown with a small off white head. Aroma of fruit, caramel, chocolate, sweet malt, with a faint vanilla presence. Flavor was the same; possibly a bit sweeter with a few more nutty notes. Just ok for me.

Cask at The Bruery. Dark brown with a long lasting off-white head. Nutty carmel flavor with a strong vanilla finish. A nice take on the regular Two Turtle Doves.

Sampled on 12/6/2009 at the Brewery. This Belgian Strong Ale pours a dark brown color from the cask. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is chocolate, nutty, vanilla, coffee and bourbon. A medium bodied Belgian Strong ale. The malts are caramel and sweet. Hints of vanilla and oak. Hops are earthy. Nice balance of malt, bourbon and oak. The vanilla beans add a nice mellowing sweetness to this beer. They really go well with the chocolate. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet with some vanilla

On cask at the Bruery Dark brown pour with a one finger off white head that stays around nicely. The addition of the vanilla beans are a really nice complement to the beer. Nice chocolate, vanilla & nutty flavors. It’s a smooth & creamy treat.

Rating numba 1. Not sure if the weird things I found in this beer were because of fatigue, but here it goes! - On cask - Appearance: Pours a dark brown with a hefty tan head that eventually subsides. Aroma: Musty rummermaid cooler, coffee roast, light spice, cocoa powder and slight vanilla. Taste: Bready malt, dark chocolate and boozy vanilla. Mouthfeel: Creamy. Overall: Very nice, and a rare treat to be sure. I think I enjoyed this beer bottle conditioned slightly better. The vanilla was a great addition.
