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.

500ml bottle. Very dark pour. Coffee and chocolate are more up front, but the vanilla slide in at the end. Overall, tasty stuff.

Solid brew. Nice roastiness with hints of vanilla that linger a bit. Silky but thin mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrChopin (3999) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 30, 2013
black with a tan cream head, drops to a ring. Nose is heavy bean. Flavor soft and delicate. Maine is so good. The vanilla lingers but light porter anise rises mid, peppery and dry through the dark, rye-esque finish, roast throughout but always as accent, never dominating the silky mouthfeel.

tambrico (50) - New York, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Nice stout. Pours black with a thick pillowy brown head. Aroma of coffee. Tastes like chocolate up front and then finishes vanilla. Flavors are subdued but in a good way. They’re subtle. Medium body. Mouthfeel was pretty thin for a stout actually. I enjoyed this beer.
