COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Vanilla Tree is a Belgian-style dubbel brewed with a variety of dark crystal malts and dark Belgian candi syrup. After fermentation, the beer is aged on whole vanilla beans and toasted oak chips. The result is a wonderfully smooth, malty ale with notes of dark fruit, spice, and (naturally) vanilla and oak!

juanenka (257) - valladolid, SPAIN - MAY 5, 2013
Botella. Marrón oscura casi negra con excelente corona, menos carbonatacion que una doble belga tradicional. Aroma licoroso y dulce con especias de por medio y muchas trazas de maltas caramelizadas. Sabor café y regaliz mucho dulzor intermedia y gran amargor bien camuflado, especiada. Agradable final

obguthr (4589) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2013
Slutfest 2013: Pecan nose. Cloudy brown, thin tan head. Flavor is somewhere between maple syrup and bubblegum, but closer to the latter. Odd. Disparate flavors and aromas, muddled with no transitions. Kind of a mess.

Emeister84 (1556) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2013
Aromas of marble pound cake, peanut butter cookies, golden raisins, and floral hops. Brown with mostly lasting, khaki head. Off-dry, rummy, with coconut tones, and some cola. Medium body, average carbonation, and a sweet, nutty finish.

Opaque dark brown beer with a good pale tan head. Palate is smooth but dry. Dark chocolate cake. Minerals. Trace of hops but this is a chocolate cake beer!
