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.

From a bomber. Pours very dark with generous tan head. Lots of coffee, bitter dark chocolate and roasted grain on the nose and palate. The vanilla provides a mellow sweet finish. This is a keeper! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JDBaker11058 (1770) - Maryland, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Appearance: deep near-black, with a thick, frothy tan head. Aroma: chocolate, coffee, vanilla, a hint of sour cream. Taste: bittersweet dark chocolate, crčme fraiche, roast espresso beans, a hint of caramel and leather. Finish: a lingering lactic tang vies with chocolate, roast, and vanilla. Notes: Quite a good stout, with excellently thick mouthfeel but well-restrained alcohol making for a nice palate. Very good, but at $8 a bottle for 16 ounces, it’s probably a one-time thing.

500ml bottle. Dark brown-- near black-- pour with thick, creamy tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, roast, touches of vanilla. There are faint coffee and sweet cream notes in the nose as well. Flavor is mildly sweet with bitter roast notes. A touch of saltiness and umami. Smooth, silky body with medium carbonation. Finishes on a nice vanilla and chocolate note.

Scipio (810) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Pours an inky black color with a frothy, dark tan, long lasting head. The aroma has lots of coffee that is complimented with vanilla. It is very robust. The taste remains big on coffee that goes along with probably an equal dosage of chocolate. Vanilla is present throughout. Aftertaste is coffee and lingers for awhile. Medium in body with a creamy creamy, yet a little bit of oily texture. Very soft in carbonation. This one is pretty straightforward with what it offers. But it is done well and is very easy to enjoy if you like stouts.

Aromas of coffee and dark chocolate, taste is sweet... cocoa, light coffee and a hint of vanilla.... smooth, nice finish, not overly heavy... a very nice stout.
