  • Brewer's Description:  Styled from Boulevards Bully! Porter and adding some vanilla Bean and Makers Mark Bourbon. I split and scraped the vanillia bean into the burboun and let it soak for a week before adding to the secondary.
  • Recommended Glassware: Stout Glass
  • Russ' rating: 9/10
  • With the brew: Being Bad
  • Comments: This one is very tasty! I used the suggested liquid yeast from White Labs, and may never go back to dry. It made a huge difference in the taste of the brew! This one pours with a wonderful malty nose and a hint of the bourbon. The head consisted of average ( 0.5mm - 0.7mm ) bubbles that dissipated to a nice caramel ring at the top of the beer. The flavor was slightly hoppy with a vanilla and oak taste in the front but is smoothed to a rich malty flavor after a moment. Next time I may add more vanilla beans. And there will definitely be a next time!
