COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Vanilla Noir is Prairie Noir aged on organic, fair trade vanilla beans, and let’s 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.

12 oz. bottles poured to snifters displaying and black/brown hue, with a presentable layer of brownish tan froth, and spots & strands of lacing. The nose was roasted, expressive vanilla, cocoa, toffee, sweetness, graham cracker malt, and s'mores-like creaminess. Ditto on the flavor, full bodied, with low carbonation, some added dark caramel, syrupy texture, roasted, earthy, and slightly tannic bitterness, and definite whiskey & warmth. Enjoyed this back to back with GI Bourbon Co. Vanilla & Rye. Hard to choose a winner.

Pours black, thick, small brown head with minimal lacing. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, wood and whiskey. Tastes sweet and boozy, roasted malts, vanilla, oak, bourbon, chocolate and beans. A bit sweeter than Prairie Noir, with the vanilla addition. Thick, smooth, soft carbonation, lingering flavours. Still awesome.

12 oz. bottle. Aroma of bold vanilla, chocolate, and bourbon. Taste is vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, and bold barrel. Bourbon is a tad hot but it balances the stout. Very nice!!

Bottle from App Vintner- The vanilla isn’t working for me, I like the non-vanilla version better.

DiarmaidBHK (6170) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2017
Bottle from Appalachian Vintner. Pours oily black with a khaki head. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Interesting blend of vanilla with the base prairie bomb though I’m not sure it adds much. Still quaffable. Hides it’s booze well.

12 ounce bottle from Wine + Market. Big chocolate taste with vanilla nose and then vanilla in body. Good but too pricey.

Amazing beer 2nd to apple brandy noir. Overwhelming vanilla that somehow blends well with bourbon barrel stout. Absolutely delicious. Well done.

GenDV138 (7964) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - DEC 6, 2017
12 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Aromas of vanilla, marshmallow, graham cracker, whiskey, booze, dark chocolate, cocoa. Tastes of sweet vanilla, milk chocolate, coffee, whiskey. Full body with a dry and slightly warm finish. Tasty but maybe a touch too much vanilla. Very rich.

BuckeyeBoy (9219) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 11, 2017
12 ounce bottle in the lineup for the rest of the variance. This is probably my favorite of the bunch. Pours out black topped with a small tan head. Nose is nice roast malt chocolate vanilla The Bourbon Barrel shows through well a little Ash. Taste is more of the vanilla Bourbon Barrel forward Chocolat Roast malts coffee and a little touch of ashtray
