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.

HuskerTan (980) - 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.

Bottle share at Evernote in Redwood City, CA. Nice flavors of vanilla that linger throughout. Perhaps a bit too one-note and flat.
