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.

Pours a pitch black with a small, brownish head. Looks menacing enough to drink.Cocoa, cream, vanilla bean and coffee aromas unfold as it warms up to room temperature. Very inviting.Wow. Vanilla bean, cream and roasted coffee mingle together, finishing in an orgasm of all three flavors. Very palatable. Vanilla lingers the longest on my palate, followed by cream. A light, but memorable finish to an excellent beer.It’s an interesting thing to do with a regular stout and in this case, the aging compliments this stout. Check it out!!!

375 ml bottle from trade with seth_lfod. Thanks Seth! Pours pitch black with a perfect 1 finger head that fades slowly and leaves great webbing on the glass. Aroma is faint but nice, mostly vanilla and medium roasted coffee with hints of chocolate, anise, cream, and burnt toast. Taste is awesome. Lots of roasted coffee, vanilla, and burnt toast. Some light smoke, chocolate and cream. Light sweetness and a fairly strong bitterness. Very smooth, long finish of coffee, vanilla, and cream. Everything seems to balance out here, my kinda stout. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. My first Maine Beer Co. beer and I will definitely be seeking out more now. I think this is my favorite non-imperial stout I’ve ever had. Love it.

Love it! Another beautifully balanced beer that I will crush whenever I can find it. Aged on vanilla beans so it gives you that POP! Coffee notes hushed down by the sweetness, making it a very approachable sweet stout. If you get the chance, drink this on nitro (like Guinness), it will be an unforgettable experience.

Very nice stout. Deep roasty aroma, followed through in flavor. Hints of vanilla infusing throughout, in a complex medley that sings non-mean songs ironically enough. Semi sweet -- an initial sweetness seems to give way to dryness. Mouthfeel is thick and silky. Recommended! A- ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours dark brown with a disappearing tan head and a chocolate and vanilla aroma. There is a full-bodied dark malt flavor featuring chocolate, dark molasses, coffee and vanilla. This is a very pleasant dessert-like drink. The oat mellows it out.

Lots of roasted notes. Very dark beer with nutty roasted taste which is probably where you come across the vanilla notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught at Atwood’s. Pours a deep black/brown, with a thin creamy brown head that dissipates to nothing. Aroma is spectacular for a stout - tons of chocolate, hints of vanilla ice cream, coffee bean, and I detect just the slightest touch of bubblegum? Medium chocolate sweetness with a light super smooth roast bitterness gives this a perfectly balanced no fuss stout flavour. Full, silky smooth, with a chocolatey aftertaste. Absolutely delicious, almost as good as stout gets.

L’opacité de cette bière ne laisse aucune place à un imaginaire lumineux. C’est noir, très noir. Une épaisse couche de mousse brune se pose sur la bière. Au nez, tous les arômes typiques au style se battent pour l’attention de nos narines : le chocolat, le café et la torréfaction sont puissants. Ces éléments se retrouvent décuplés en bouche, c’est délicieux. Malgré l’intensité des saveurs, la bière se laisse boire très facilement grâce à sa texture soyeuse et crémeuse. Un autre coup de circuit pour cette brasserie à l’inventaire sans failles.
