We loved our base tropical stout recipe so much that we decided we had to bring it back! This time, we thought the rich chocolate, creamy base would benefit from a heaping addition of vanilla beans. The decadent blend of dark specialty malts and mash techniques provide this beer with a creamy, robust body without the roast character. The vanilla shines through on the aroma followed by a slight rum undertone from the piloncillo sugar. We are thinking this might be a perfect dessert beer to pair with the approaching fall evenings!
