Vanilla Noir is Prairie Noir aged on organic, fair trade vanilla beans, and lets just say it takes a lot of beans! The vanilla flavor compliments the whiskey barrel aging process and adds a delicious layer to the beer.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 18, 2014
12oz waxed bottle served in a Prairie teku. A - Pitch black body with a firm espresso head on top. Retention is nice and uniform. S - Rich chocolate, whiskey, oak, alcohol, charred chicory, vanilla. T - Roasted/charred chocolate malts, vanilla, whiskey, grassy/herbal hops, chicory coffee, theres sweetness but it cant compete with the roast and dry wood. The finish is semi-sweet and slightly bitter with a very dry close. M - Lighter body than I expected, but still quite smooth, extremely dry finish. The vanilla is light but adds a nice touch to heavily roasted malt base and melds well with the whiskey. The body was light and smooth but seemed to lack that decadent feel I was hoping from an oatmeal stout. Serving type: bottle 01-12-2014

dinkle50 (1430) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 1, 2017
Jet black pour with a very thin espresso colored head, which faded quickly. Aroma is full of whiskey, chocolate and vanilla. Aroma is a bit like rum butter ice cream. Full mouth, thick and viscous. Taste is full of vanilla that just lingers in your mouth with hints of chocolate and whiskey. Just loads of vanilla, not too sweet. Slight alcohol burn. Amazing beer.

SG111 (1564) - New York, USA - FEB 27, 2017
Bottled at Clubhouse BFD event. Pours black, tan head. Aroma is very sweet vanilla milkshake notes, with some bourbon, and even more vanilla. Its thick. Flavor is vanilla, creamy notes, chocolate, a little roasty, some bourbon, and toffee. Super creamy. Thick vanilla milkshake drink. Barely even beer at that point. Just like a vanilla chocolate milkshake. Very good.

Tmoney99 (14027) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2017
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate, coffee, vanilla and alcohol aroma. Heavy dark sweet toasted dark chocolate malt flavor with a heavy dark sweet and small alcohol bite finish of long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.

CanIHave4Beers (4161) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JAN 14, 2017
On Draught
Pours black with a big tan head and lots of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is vanilla bean and chocolate cake baking in the oven. Rich & sweet, inviting to say the least.

The flavor is sweet & rich loads of chocolate, vanilla bean, toffee, & maple. Nicely roasty with a mild espresso like bitterness and a pleasant warming booziness.
Delicious dessert beer

MrSquash (132) - Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2016
Aroma has a high level of vanilla extract alcohol quality. Background is milk chocolate. Flavor is surprisingly dark/roasty grain that is borderline astringent. Aftertaste is mostly roast with mild chocolate and vanilla. Roast is far more dominant than any vanilla qualities.

marcus (9707) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 25, 2016
Bottle from Cap Tap. Pours dark brown with a transient light brown head and a treacle and whiskey aroma. There is a sweet dark molasses flavor with a hefty dose of vanilla and slight fruitiness. Warm alcohol trail that leaves whiskey on the palate. A nice sipper.
