COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flagship Series. A delicious Oatmeal Stout with just enough hops to balance the copious quantities of dark roasted malts, oatmeal for a creamy smooth drinkability, and whole vanilla beans for a rich complexity.

Rating #1430 - 08.01.2015 - On tap @craftbeeryeg. Dark brown pour with a weak off white head. Cocoa and vanilla on the nose, and big coffee earthy malt notes. Taste is very rich in coffee and chocolate, mild vanilla bean. Balanced for a sweet stout, very palatable indeed. Nicely put together.

Bottle pours deep brown/black with a thick beige head. Aroma shows dark chocolate, light roast, vanilla, and a hint of brown sugar oatmeal. Flavor shows pretty much the same with emphasis on vanilla/marshmallow. Overall body is moderate and the finish is somewhat sweet.

stevoj (3839) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 28, 2015
Bottle from Albertsons. Even my friends are all over the board on this one. Normal stout pour, small skin of a head. Vanilla is the first noticeable aroma, and not out of place on a sweet stout. Taste brings in more vanilla flavor, but again it blends well. Finishes sweet , but short. All in all, very well rounded and approachable

Bottle. If you love vanilla then you will love this one. Aroma of chocolate and vanilla. Taste is the same. Palate was just a bi thinner than I would prefer, but that was not a hinderance as it made this quite quaff-able. Finished sweet. Overall: Decent

Handypaul (422) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a creamy to frothy light brown head that leaves excellent lacing. Aroma of chocolate and dark malt. Medium sweet, lightly bitter, full body with a somewhat overpowering flavor of vanilla, mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with soft carbo, notes of chocolate and coffee leading to a lightly bitter finish that turns sticky in the far finish.
