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!

JanLaursen (3064) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2012
Bottle, 65 cl, at Papsø. Reddish brown with a small off white head. Caramel, slightly spicy, malty nose. Cinnamon? Flavor has the same spicey notes, it’s sweet malty, slightly alcoholic, dark fruits, leading to a quite dry, woody finish. Odd, but interesting - in small doses.
