2014 Vanilla Bean Barrel-Aged Dark Lord

This was a big want for a long time, and I never thought we would meet, let alone in a tasting with a small group of friends. The beer pours a midnight black, and right from the start I can smell the vanilla beans. Wow, it is very strong and very upfront on the nose, but I’m not going to lie, I kinda like it…a lot. The nose just blows every other vanilla beer I’ve tried out of the water, it’s not even close. It’s like that first time I smelled fresh homemade french vanilla ice cream on a warm fudgey brownie. On the taste the vanilla is very sweet, but its not overwhelming, it’s just absolutely perfect. This beer just attacks your mouth and nostrils with the taste and nose, it just so balanced. I found myself smelling my glass for minutes after I finished this beauty (100/100).
