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.

artmcd8 (1617) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle from HOTB. Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Aromas of chocolate and vanilla. Tastes slightly sweet and nutty. Dryish finish. Not much carbonation and a bit on the thinner side but a well done stout.

DuffMan (6798) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 8, 2013
On tap @ the brewery. Very dark brown body, opaque even in the 5oz sample snifter. Rich aroma of Coffee Crisp chocolate bars, roasty and sweet with a light nuttiness. Same flavours on the palate in terrific density, along with a lovely mild vanilla sweetness, finishing with a roasty dry bitterness in perfect balance. A beautiful drinkable flavourful stout. Just awesome.

deyholla (6660) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours a near clear dark brown with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of vanilla and oats with a bit of underlying sweet dark grains. Flavor has sweet dark grains and sweet chocolate with oats and a good amount of vanilla.

Good. Clean tasting, technically impressive, like most MBC beers. Don't really get the vanilla flavor, though, and there's not much unique to it. Worth trying, but fairly expensive for what it is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

boFNjackson (4140) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Bottle... Poured thick black with sudsy tan head. Nose had bitter-sweet molasses along with vanilla and a hint of roast. Tasted of mocha coffee along with roasted grains and a decent vanilla presence. Depending on your sensitivity to vanilla this could either way for you. However, it worked well for myself.

MrBunn (2459) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle. Tom is a deep brown color with a big and sudsy tan head. He smells kinda mean, like leather, chocolate and licorice. Flavor is a mix of the above with a touch of plum, vanilla and cardboard. It’s a nice stout, but not quite what I would have expected.

chriso (7390) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2013
500ml bottle (bottle conditioned), stamped 100712 00, at tasting on 18 November 2012. Purchased somewhere in Massachusetts but I forget where. Excellent dark colour. Good rich roasty malts and dark chocolate. The vanilla is not too intrusive, thankfully. Not too sticky either. High drinkability couple with plenty of flavour. I like it.

Bottle shared by brew3crew. Pours dark brown in color with a small beige head. The aroma has roasted malt, mild coffee, dark chocolate with a splash of vanilla. The flavor is a nice combination of the aroma with a medium body and very smooth mouth feel. I found this to be very easy to drink and nothing like the name suggests.

Very nice stout. Deep roasty aroma, followed through in flavor. Hints of vanilla infusing throughout, in a complex medley that sings non-mean songs ironically enough. Semi sweet -- an initial sweetness seems to give way to dryness. Mouthfeel is thick and silky. Recommended! A- ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
