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.

Bouteille 500ml. De couleur noire et opaque. Nez de malt rôti, moyen de café, léger de chocolat noir, de vanille et de houblon herbeux avec quelques traces de cendre. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture moyennement crémeuse. Léger goût de vanille avec de faibles traces lactiques de crème brûlée lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût de malt rôti avec des notes de pain grillé et de chocolat noir puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon herbeux aux petites notes résineuses avec un léger-moyen goût de café. Post-goût moyen-long, léger-moyen amer de rôti, moyen-léger de houblon herbeux aux notes résineuses avec un moyen goût de café ainsi que des traces de vanille et de chocolat.

You have to love a local for local trade that brings you something completely unexpected. Thanks to RABinVA for hooking me up. Pours like black coffee with a tan head. While I expected the smell to be of vanilla, I detected more nutmeg. I also expected the vanilla to make it very sweet, but it had just a touch which blended well into this beer. Bottle - Trade from RABinVA

Love it! Another beautifully balanced beer that I will crush whenever I can find it. Aged on vanilla beans so it gives you that POP! Coffee notes hushed down by the sweetness, making it a very approachable sweet stout. If you get the chance, drink this on nitro (like Guinness), it will be an unforgettable experience.

500ml bottle from a trade, thanks cp45!

Pours pitch black with a smooth brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, hints of chocolate, vanilla and coffee.Taste is smooth, sweetish and roasty with hints of vanilla, chocolate and coffee. Finish is sweetish with loads of vanilla and chocolate. Quite nice, sweetish and balanced stout.

Some of the junk hanging in the shower stalls at Rikers Island are not as black as this beer. Very deep black pour with a tan head. Aromas of roast and some nutty flavor. Taste is kind of meh... Not as good as I was expecting. Too much twang and not enough cigarette butts and asphalt. Ehh... Scroll past.

tom10101 (2642) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle (500 ml). Black with a huge creamy and slowly diminishing creamy beige head and some lacing. Aroma is of vanilla (not overwhelming), roasted malt, coffee and bitter chocolate... quite complex for a 6.5% abv Stout. Taste is sligthly to moderately sweet with vanilla, roasted malt, coffe, bitter chocolate and slight bitter finish. Medium body. As the description says, the mouthfeel is silky. Good Stout. Not awesome, but well constructed. Good balance between vanilla and roasted malt.

Braudog (5583) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle. Pitch black with a thin but firm tan head, a bit cratered. The aroma is flat-out dessert-like, rich like a chocolate milkshake. This drinks like a liquid brownie, too ... the vanilla but a subtle layer within the baked yumminess. (#5004, 5/4/2013)
