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.

$7.29 Bottle, Wine Warehouse, CHO. Pours dark brown with a large frothy head. Good lacing. Nice looking beer! Smells bittersweet: vanilla on top of chocolate and nuts. Tastes nutty... vanilla and chocolate.

HonkeyBra (4023) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2013
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 (817) - 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.

ryecatcher (1304) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Was stoked to hear that these guys have finally arrived in the Chicago market. Anyways... this one pours a gorgeous, stouty brownish-black with a massive Jamocha-shake colored head with unparalleled retention (think Guinness the way they serve it in Dublin), wicked lacing. Nose is roasty with some cocoa and hint of that vanilla -- but it’s kinda hard to detect it underneath this snowdrift like head. Mouth is medium-full bodied and velvety, but surprisingly dry, with coffee, roasted barley, some vanilla, licorice and bakers chocolate, a fair degree of bitterness and a hint of ash on the back end. Nice hearty beer for this shitty rainy November eve in the Midwest.

(Bottle). Pours a black brown complexion with tan head and lacing. A rich malty stout with nice coffee and cocoa flavor. Well balanced. A solid stout but less than exceptional. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
