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.

dfearnley (1096) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle to pint glass Vanilla, cocoa, oat, treacle, lightly roasted malt. Jet black, a few wispy trails of small bubbles and a thin dark tan head. Vanilla, dark chocolate, coffee, toasted malt, and a little bit of sourness. Perfectly balanced and eminently drinkable. Silky and creamy, but there’s a bit of chalkiness too.

musinj6 (422) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Pours an opaque black with small tan head and moderate lacing. Aroma of roasted malt that is prominent. Hint of espresso. Little dark chocolate. Hint of vanilla. MIldy sweet up front, but well balanced and becomes mildly bitter toward the end. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation Long, silky smooth finish.

UXO (472) - CANADA - AUG 29, 2014
Pours nearly jet black with only the merest hint of cola brown around the periphery, three finger pillowy tan head, and moderate to heavy chunky lacing. (Yes, exactly like the King Titus. They look essentially identical, OK?) Nose is dark chocolate, vanilla, coffee, candi sugar, slight smokiness. Taste is mild vanilla, chocolate, and coffee. Medium body, low carbonation, and a mild off-dry bitter finish. I think I prefer this just slightly over the King Titus Porter. The nose is more cohesive, with no sharp aspects that feel like they need mellowing. If anything, the flavour is perhaps a touch too mild, though the vanilla works well. An excellent stout, regardless.

KyotoLefty (6831) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle. Lovely jet black with a medium high, frothy, bubbly tan head. Big nose of vanilla, chocolate, soy, cafe au lait. Rich and delicious. Umami comes in with the sweetness, the vanilla, a touch of citrus and the light woody roast. Full creamy body. An excellent beer. Slight tang in the finish along with some hops too.

Draft at the brewery in the "all-in" flight. Black. Sweet Vanilla and coffee dominate with roasted chocolate notes. Medium mouthfeel with low carb, and full body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AgentAle (830) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 22, 2014
Aroma is rich malts, vanilla and a slight grain roastiness. Taste is slightly bitter with obvious vanilla character. Light hop tang on finish bjt not overpowering. Appearance is a black full body with a beige / brown one with a head that retains well.

cbfobes (2596) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle picked up at a Binny’s in Schaumburg area, pours nearly black with a thin light brown head, aroma is crazy, tons of roast and chocolate with a good amount of coffee and vanilla all come through, but weaved perfectly together, the flavor has a heavy chocolate and roast front end with some bitterness of coffee in the finish, nice notes of sweet vanilla but not overly sweet, really enjoyed this.

On tap at Maine Beer Company. Pours an almost black brown. Beans and coffee on the nose. Very light bodied, but still good flavor. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
