Banks Brewing / BANHS Brewing love a bit of "conditioned on Tahitian Vanilla Bean" action; they've been playing this tune on their incredible Imperial Stouts for some time now, the technique employed with great success in Java Freak, Straight to the Fudge Room, Relax! I'm a Regular Here, Prestige Worldwide, and if that wasn't enough of a flex they even did it to an incredible Oat Cream IPA; Kid Don't Play.
Here in Scoop Vanilla Stout the booze is a bit more restrained, and there isn't the barrel age or other adjuncts, but the result is again exceptional. It's a joy to sniff, it's gentle and velvety on the palate, milk chocolate, coffee, and subtle vanilla vibes before a snap to high cocoa dark chocolate towards the back. Delicious.
