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.

Pours black with a tan head. Vanilla was very prominent but not overpowering. Cocoa and coffee notes as well. I really liked this beer. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 10, 2015 Deep flavor. Strong. Stays on your lips. Well worth it. Had in Vegas since the East Coast doesnít have it. Tap. Just had in bottle. More bitter flavors, But still great with oak and vanilla

I love vanilla so this is heaven for me....Tons of vanilla, but itís obviously not extract. Tastes like a dark hoppy cream soda. Roasted. Some coffee Thanks aaron...I really enjoyed this.

Bomber. Roasted malt aroma with chocolate and vanilla notes. Pours black with a good light brown head with good retention and excellent lacing. Nice roasted and chocolate malt flavors that meld well. Finishes very smooth with vanilla notes coming through. Excellent stout.

dreamflower (752) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 2, 2016
Bottle in Lethbridge. Aroma was dominated by super dark chocolate chocolate and coffee. It was super dark, a latte coloured head. The taste was vanilla and chocolate but I also detected some anise as well. I think that might have been because of the hops, a tinge of bitterness with played well with the dark chocolate elements. I wish I could have this again.

Smell rich choc. With a nice vanilla note. The roasted malts really come out Its a deep brown with a little light brown head. Nice full bodied brew very chocolately and a hint of vanilla. The bitterness of the choc is delicious and the vanilla is on the aftertaste. Very well done

22 oz bottle poured into a nonic pint glass. Black with some brown hues around the edges and two fingers of nice frothy tan head. Aromas of vanilla, dark chocolate, caramel, sweet coffee and maybe a hint of dark fruit. Tastes of dark chocolate, vanilla, roasty notes, sweet mocha. Medium-full body with a dry finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Delicious.
