Irish Vanilla, Coffee, and Kaluah Cream Stout Sweetness

Source: N/S Brewers
Recipe added: 03/01/01

I know that the name of the beer is a mouthful, but so is the beer. This recipe turned out to be a delicious, robust, full-flavored, semi-sweet beer. The reason that the primary fermentation took so long is because we had it in a room that was too cold for a few days before we decided that we had to move it to a warmer room. Although it is a fairly complex beer, you can pick out every flavor in its title when you drink it. The only thing that I would change is the addition of the irish moss. If anything, it just took away from the beer's amazing body.
