Time to test!

It's been just shy of 2 weeks since I bottled, and I filled a smaller bottle to be my tester, allowing me to check the carbonation level and how the beer is developing.

Carbonation is developing nicely. It is definately interesting. Complex, yet smooth. The vanilla is very subtle but that's the way it should be. There is a hint of coffee-like roasted flavor present, and a little more bitterness than I like, but it's not overpowering. Now to try it as a beer float!

The first time I tried this was at Boulder City Brewing in Nevada after a tour of the Hoover Dam during our Red Flag in 2007. A stout with ice cream, also known as a beer float. The vanilla icecream compliments the stout quite nicely, and this version is no exception.

Overall I give his beer a B so far, I'm sure it will grow on me however. I think that it will be ready for it's february 16th release at work.
