Notes/Commercial Description:
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. To achieve this higher level of decadence, we added in whole vanilla beans to the final stage of fermentation - the same process we use to dry hop a beer.

Poured nice black and thick with little to no head. Smells good. Having a hard time putting a finger on the different smells. Smooth drinking. Hint of vanilla, malt. A bit of oat too. Good beer. Has a little bit of an alcohol in the aftertaste. Overall ok. Not the best or worst oatmeal stout I have ever had.

Wife's Review: "I like it. It reminds me of the vanilla iced coffee at Starbucks."

A - The body is the darkest brown. The head is light brown, fluffy, and slick.
S - Vanilla, dark roasted malts, and faint oatmeal. The bitter aroma stands out.
T - Faded roasted malts, faint vanilla, some oatmeal. Backed up with some hops.
M - Rich and almost dense. Medium body, medium carbonation. I would like it to be thicker.
O - Decent

This is a good old regular oatmeal stout. This is good, but I would have to be hard pressed to have this again.
