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.

Beerathon (1556) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Jet black color with thick, creamy cocoa colored head and lacing. Intense coffeee and bitter chocolate flavors with some vanilla undertones. Silky smooth mouth feel. My description is spot on with the way Maine describes their beer. Sold it perfectly.

Deep coffee and roasted malt aroma. Taste is the same with some cocoa in there too. Almost a light palate for how dark it seems. No sweetness, very dry. Good well made dry stout, but think with the coffee and cocoa flavors I would prefer a slight sweetness to it? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flight at brewery. Pours, looks and smells like a stout that means it. Too one note for me- vanilla kind of takes over. Coffee, chocolate, dried fruit- it’s all in there, but I had to go looking. Nice heavy body from the oats. Finishes smooth. Just. Vanilla.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1000) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Black with 2 inches of chocolate-milk-colored, medium-coarse head that fades at a moderate rate of decay. Aroma is soy sauce, toasted wood, touch of burnt toast, hints of coffee and chocolate, touch of herbs. Body is oily, medium heaviness, and creamy with moderate amount of very fine velvety carbonation. No burn. Flavor is light coffee milk with touch of dissolved toffee and cream, light chocolate, brushy vegetation and grass, very small bitterness that melds perfectly with the flavor. Very good stout. Aroma is a little thin. Body is the highlight. Flavor is solid.

Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Bottled 2/19/13. Poured 12/25/14. opaque black with a fluffy, very active brown-beige head. Aroma is roast malts, dark fruits, vanilla (still present!), earth, chocolate, molasses; smells excellent. Taste is coffee, roast malt, chocolate, hint of char/smoke, subtle vanilla flavor, touch of prune/raisin; aftertaste is roast malt, chocolate. Thin, spotty lacing. Medium-low carbonation. Medium-full mouth feel; a touch thin perhaps. I’m surprised the vanilla has held up for this long, though it is weak at best. This is still quite good. Worth a re-rate.
