Vault Russian Imperial Stout - Bourbon
22 oz. bottle in a trade with jtclockwork. Bottle number 22 of 270 in the 2015 vintage. Small fast dying white head. Aroma is oak, mild bourbon, anise.

The flavor is huge on toasted oak. Mild roasted backbone that seem a tad thin in the mouthfeel. Oak lingers through the the sip. Bourbon is mild, lots of oak. Overall, rough around the edges.

Bomber from AFH. Totally BlCk. No head. Nice alcohol legs on the glass. Smells fantastic. A load of dark chocolate, vanilla beans and whiskey. Very akin to BCS.whoa. Oak bomb there’s very little body or flavor after the oak. Vodka? Man. This is rough.

Vault New Zealand IPA
On draft at the Railroad in Linfield. This IPA poured a slightly hazy light gold color with a decent white head. I got a lot of citrus from the nose and the flavors, along with some notes of grapefruit, oranges and fruity hops. The head left some nice lacing around the inside of the glass. The body was very bitter and flavorful. Very nice IPA!

Vault Breakfast Stout
Nitro sampler. Poured a flat pitch black with a creamy light beige head. Aroma of light notes of dark bakers chocolate, well done toast, vanilla beans, cold coffee, creamer. Flavor is the same with a touch of sweetness on the end from the syrup. The body I didn’t care for even knowing it was a nitro it just seemed to flat and smooth. Nice beer but I would like to try a normal carbonated version over the nitro.
