Our vanilla stout is a full bodied stout with some malty sweetness and mild hop notes, which are generally characteristic of an imperial stout. This beer has a stronger malt flavor from chocolate and crystal malts, and American hops give this stout a little kick. Vanilla pods from Africa were added to the beer for a week to give it a warm vanilla taste and nose.

Dark black with tan cappachino colored head. Aroma of herb and vanilla, malt backbone. At 8.5%, not a session beer but a nice way to finish up the evening.

Moravius (1265) - Beijing, CHINA - JAN 7, 2017
Vom Faß im Flow Brew, Peking (als Slow Boat Imperial Vanilla Stout). - Die Farbe ließ sich im Halbdunkel der Bar nur als tiefschwarz ansprechen. - In der Nase schwache seifige Noten und mild-süßliches Röstmalz (Kakao). - Antrunk voll und weich mit Milchschokolade, die fließend in Milchkaffee übergeht und mit ganz zarter Säure und leichten Vanillenoten endet. Die schönen Röstmalznoten sind wie in Milch eingehüllt, die Süße ist unaufdringlich. Mild rezent, füllig aber nicht breit, die 8 Prozent machen sich nicht bemerkbar. Im Abgang sehr milde, zart krautige Hopfenherbe. Erst beim Wärmerwerden auch ein wenig Stout-typische Asche. Nur die zart seifige Note stört etwas. - Originelles, weiches und fülliges Stout. Untypisch aber gut.

Lubiere (13655) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2015
A dark brown stout with a thin lacing brown head. In aroma, sweet chocolate malt with loads of vanilla extract, pleasant and sweet, like Nestlé quick. In mouth, a nice bitter chocolate with coffee grind, light vanilla extract, smooth warming alcohol, very nice. On tap at brewery.

keg at brewery bar
Rich vanilla on nose, full bodied with robust toasty malt which balances that rich vanilla fairly well. warming and filling this is a fireside sipper. restores faith in the brewery somewhat.
