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.
