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.

Pours a nice opaque black with some tan head and a nice medium collar. Good lacing out of this one. Aroma is really deep roasted malt, some faint coffee, and earthy too. Taste is where the vanilla comes out. Vanilla up front, char and roasted malt in the middle, then fades into a sweet dark caramel. Nice thick body and low carbonation. Very good but the whole time I felt there was just something off-putting.

A very nice stout that is great but the vanilla is very subdued. Dark brown to black with a rich tan head. Aroma is soft and pleasant with chocolate and malt notes. A medium body beer with a rich coffee finsh that is a little bitter.

A great stout! Good taste of chocolate and coffee. The aroma is not a normal stout I this caliber. The aroma is not what I expected. But it’s a great beer with a wonderful aftertaste. Would definitely drink this again...another 1000 times, I’d drink this!

A decent stout that tastes like a stout, but far from anything interesting. Roasty with some slight vanilla or cocoa notes, but overall a pretty straight forward stout.
