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.

Bottle:   Black, cola hued edges, large foamy dark khaki head, nice lacing.   Soft roast on the nose, a little lactose sweetness, just a touch of vanilla.   Smooth on the tongue, lightly hopped, soft roast, with a bit of that thick oatmeal stout like body.   Vanilla is very light.   Solid stout, straightforward.   Clean finish, very soft roasted malts linger.   Good stuff.   Thanks Brad!

Thin black pour with a thin tan head that went away pretty quickly. Big roasted malt nose. Roasted malt, chocolate and vanilla in the taste. Some bitter chocolate in the finish. Very good.

Bottle from Samís Quik Shop. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Leaves a fair amount of lacing.Nice chocolate malt and roasted notes on the nose. Big chocolate taste on the tongue dried a bit by the hops. Iím definitely getting the vanilla on the finish. Very nice.

Black with a decent tan head that shows excellent lacing. Burnt chocolate and vanilla nose. Dark chocolate, mixing with sweetness, a touch of sourness, then a mild hop bitterness towards the finish. Silky, yet moderate carbonation.

BLADT (467) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 18, 2014
From bottle. Pumpernickel black in glass. Thin beige head. The aroma is chicory, charcoal, coffee grinds and some latent sweetness. Complex for style. Taste is punchy, bitter. Some chalky, cacao creeps in upon warming. Well executed.
