Cask serving at Chicago Beer Society’s Day of the Living Ales, dispensed to my fest glass showing a black/brown hue, with a decent hat of light tan foam, and spots & strands of lacing. The nose was roasted & dry, with baker’s chocolate, some lesser coffee influence, a bit of char, and a touch of sweetness to the mellowing vanilla. Medium bodied, with modest carbonation, the taste was similar notes, with appropriate, earthy & roasted bitterness, and a dry finish. Liked this so much better with the vanilla addition.

Vanilla baume with Mexican vanilla beans cask pour at DOLA... Pours a mostly opaque solid mostly black pour andtopped with a more than presentable light brown head... Solid roast and sweet vanilla backing with a bitter hoppy roast expression in the finish. Just shy of medium bodied with non-existent carbonation. 8/4/7/3/14

2012 Day of the Living Ales. Sweet, new treatment! Pours a deep brown-black with a tan head. The nose is a punch of vanilla, cocoa powder and deliciousness. Not particularly sweet. Some woody notes. On tasting, the chocolate notes are really enhanced by the vanilla, bright cocoa comes through. The base beer really stands strong, revealing a great roasty stout overall. Really clean and fresh with a great vanilla character. Phenomenal beer!
