Lift Bridge Brewery Silhouette with Vanilla

What the brewers say

“Brewed in the style of an imperial stout and aged in bourbon barrels with whole Madagascar vanilla beans for up to 4 years.”

What our panel thought

“Moderate oak and vanilla notes lead the charge and control the aroma. The flavor brings in dark malt character featuring Hershey’s chocolate syrup and roast. Rich and thick with a lingering sweetness and hints of oak. The vanilla rounds out all the rough edges without being out of balance.”

What our editors thought

“Strong vanilla notes in the nose showcase an expressive barrel, with a sophisticated restraint. The sip waters down the precision of the nose, with vague chocolate notes.”
