Time for a very special beer!
Vanilla Kissed at 11.5 vol%
It is made by Rudy Vossen and Jeroen Gunst from "De 4 Monniken" here in Bruges.
First, they lagered Madagascar vanilla beans on Suntory Japanese Whisky!
A few months later, it was infused into an Imperial Stout with adding another load of vanilla beans during the lagering.

The result has become quite some amazing beer!
Most possibly the most vanilla flavored beer I ever had!
It pours quite oily, and has a nice creamy brown head.
Drinking gives a velvety soft mouthfeeling. Very thick on the tongue too.
Hints of Japanese Suntory whiskey and a LOAD of vanilla.
This stout is quite sweet too and has those burnt malts flavors.
But ofcourse, it's all about the vanilla and Japanese whisky.
LOVELY stuff !!!  t_u
