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.

enjoyed on-tap from the pour farm tavern. review taken from notes.

a: black in color, completely opaque with a thick tan head that slowly settles into a nice lacing around the glass.

s: rich malty aroma with notes of chocolate and roasted malt.

t: lots of malt flavor with a heavy chocolate malt sweetness. roasted malt flavor is there with subtle notes of vanilla. well balanced and easy to drink but this stout leans a bit towards the sweet side.

m: wonderfully smooth mouthfeel.

glad i got the opportunity to try this one. a good stout well worth trying.

Appearance: An opaque black pour. Lasting creamy head. Leaves behind some nice lacing. Not bad but nothing to write home about.

Smell: Roasted malts and coco with vanilla undertones.

Taste: A predominately roasted and coffee taste with vanilla undertones.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, silky almost.

Overall: A very nice stout worth drinking at least once in a while. The price certainly makes it a worthwhile drink.

Update:
Taste: The vanilla beans are much more stronger this time.

On tap at the Beer Table, Brooklyn, NY.
Poured into 8oz nonic.
Pours a deep brown almost black color. Smells of coffee and roasted malts.
Taste is similar...adding a bit of vanilla and spice. Nice carbonation and smooth.
This is a very tastey and pleasant beer, but its more like a porter than a stout.
I just wish it was served in a bigger glass.
