COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our American-style stout aged on organic vanilla beans. Intense notes of coffee and dark chocolate lead way to subtle notes of natural vanilla. Flaked oats generate a silky mouthfeel.

Bottle pour. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate and faint vanilla. Thin tan head with a pitch dark body. The vanilla takes a back seat in the overall taste profile here, gives this beer a slight undertone rather than a sweetness. Which is a good thing all things considered. A very good beer - carbonation and roasted malt comes together. Almost a porter mouthfeel - not overly thick. .

500ml brown bottle. Black pour with a large creamy beige cap. Nose has coffee, roast. Taste has deep roast, heavily roasted coffee, cocoa. Bitter end, dry and roasty with late vanilla notes. Body is medium to full, very smooth mouthfeel. Quite delicious, but I could have done with even more vanilla.

Bottle, black thick pour, with lots of creamy mocha head. Aroma, interesting, light coffee roast, hops, and some subtle sweetness that I wouldn’t know was vanilla had it not been for description. Taste, light sweet roast, mild hop presence, medium mouthfeel, with a mild bitter finish. Overall, really solid brew, nice amount of complexity, and the vanilla although subtle adds a touch of sweetness to an already well rounded stout, these guys can do no wrong, really happy we get to try some of there offerings.

SpringsLicker (3114) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Black with a tall, tan head. Aroma of roast malts, coffee and chocolate. The flavor is well balanced between roast malt bitterness and the malt sweetness. Nice dryness in the finish. Good body.

reebtogi (4039) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 11, 2014
500ml bottle pours black in color with a huge light brown head that retains well and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is coffee and roasted grains with dark chocolate and a hint of vanilla. Taste is a roasted grain and coffee bitterness with a dark chocolate malty sweetness. Medium to heavy body with average carbonation. This is definitely one of the better stouts I have tried in a long while. Very tasty and highly recommended.

Opaque dark brown beer, good pale tan head. Palate is airy and dry. Dry dark malt, no roast or bitterness. Dry dark chocolate. Light bitterish coffee. Whisper of smoke. Dry finish. Standard vanilla porter, lacking the normal Maine fairy dust.
