Oskar Blues JAHvanilla Ten FIDY 2019

What the brewers say

Aged with coffee and vanilla beans.

What our panel thought

Coffee- and chocolate-forward in aroma and flavor, with hints of vanilla, caramel, roast malt, and toasted marshmallow that complement the base beer and add an impression of alcoholic warmth. A bit on the thin side and a bit harshly boozy.

What our editors thought

Nutty, almond, and roast notes dominate the nose with a strong vanilla undercurrent. The sip is on the thin-ner side, but woody tannic sharpness helps cut through the rich vanilla and coconut sweetness. Bold, clean, and rich. Walks a properly tensioned slackline between decadent and disciplined.
