Our American-style stout aged on organic vanilla beans. Intense notes of coffee and dark chocolate lead way to subtle notes of natural vanilla. Flaked oats generate a silky mouthfeel.

Bottle dated 082612 08. So, August 26, 2012. Poured in to tulip.

A -Black with half a finger of medium brown head.

S - Big sweet vanilla aroma up front with roast and hints of coffee in the background.

T - Vanilla up front that immediately gives way to a huge roast profile and some bitter coffee flavours. Fairly sweet overall with some balancing bitterness.

M - Medium body, Light carbonation.

Appearance - off-white/egg shell colored one and a half finger head sitting atop this dark brew. No light really coming through the glass. Slight red glow around the edges when held up to the light. Looks like a stout to me.

Smell - Right off the bat the roasted coffee and malts make their presence known. Bakers chocolate comes next. The vanilla scent is soft. It's certainly there but not as assertive as I expected. Maybe even a little maple in there?

Taste - Roasted coffee and malts right on the front of the pallet. The vanilla is smooth and not overpowering. Quite drinkable with a bitter, roasty bite that lingers at the end.

MF - Smooth and velvety. Feels more like a porter. Nice and light. Medium body.

Overall - This one gets a thumbs up. A nice, light, easy drinking stout. As a fanatic of the style, I could drink this in the summer time.
