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.

UXO (1339) - CANADA - SEP 15, 2015
Appearance: clear deep brown with two fingers of rocky tan head, good retention and patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: dark chocolate, vanilla, oats, dark roasty malt, liquorice, floral. (7/10) Taste: moderately strong sweet, moderately strong bitter. (7/10) Palate: full body, moderate-low carbonation, mild lingering bitter and warming finish. (4/5) Nice. Very sweet, but reasonably well balanced with a decent bitter and an emphatic but not overwhelming vanilla. It’s a touch hot in the finish, though, and the bitter lingers long after the sweet is a distant memory. Not saying that’s a bad thing - just the facts. I’d have this again, and I’d like to try the non-vanilla version for comparison. (15/20)

Black with thick frothy dark tan head. Sweet aroma with vanilla, coffee, chocolate, and oats. Flavor has roasty bitterness from dark chocolate and coffee beans, but vanilla sweetness also comes through strong. Thick syrupy palate. Excellent dessert beer.

Draft at the pourhouse. Pours black with a medium sized brown head. The aroma is a nice mix of roasted malt and vanilla bean. The taste is heavy vanilla, light roast, cocoa. Liked it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HuskerTan (1507) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Bottle. A- Vanilla, cocoa, slightly sweet, bitter, dry. A- Black color, black liquid, brown head. T- Subtle vanilla, bitter coffee, cocoa, dry. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. O- Not as smooth as one would hope and not a ton of vanilla. Seemed to be pretty bitter and dry, especially towards the end and more notes of coffee than anything else. Good for $4 a bomber but otherwise let down.

tightslice (817) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Bottle share at Evernote in Redwood City, CA. Nice flavors of vanilla that linger throughout. Perhaps a bit too one-note and flat.
