Poured into a nonic pint glass.

A - Pours a deep black color with a nice thick light brown head.

S - Smells a lot like breakfast/dessert. Picking up on hints of coffee, toffee, chocolate and some vanilla.

T - A burst of flavors. Tons of coffee beans, chocolate. On the background I am picking up on hints of toffee and vanilla beans which adds a nice bitterness.

M - Almost feels like drinking a soda. Good carbonation, while being very easy to drink. The flavors really stick to the inside of the mouth.

O - I am not a stout drinker, but I decided to give this one a shot, having luck with all of the other MBC beers. Overall, this was an excellent brew. Very drinkable and tons of flavors. Definitely was very enjoyable on a cold VT night.

First off, it's really nice to see a vanilla aged stout that hasn't been needlessly aged in whiskey barrels. Seriously.

Poured perhaps a bit too cold into a Lawson's tulip glass. Deep, dark ruby with a chocolate-colored head.

Smells strongly of roasted barley with just a light wisp of dry hops--a regular old American stout, no need for bourbon burn!

Gentle carbonation lends a smoothnes to the front end that is quickly, nicely washed away by burnt barley roughness. This segues into a semi-sweet finish of bakers chocolate, coffee, and fresh vanilla bean.
