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.

Very, very good stout. Vanilla on the very back is light. Coffee dominates. A bit less body than anticipated. Good flavor. Cannot go wrong with Maine Beer Company.

A: Dark brown to black with a ruby tinge of a half mm only when held to the light. Topped with 4 fingers of deep beige head, chunky milkshake like lacing.


S: Dark chocolate, smoke, coffee, dark toasted notes.


T: Dark chocolate, coffee, light smokiness, hint of tar and burnt rubber. Solid sweetness to balance. The vanilla beans are present, but hard detect until you look for them. They come in as a light background floral aroma right near the end.


M: Thick, lightly syrupy body, medium low carbonation.


O: Was glad to find another brew by this Maine brewery in Chicago at Whole Foods. Drinking it Aug 25th, 2014 in New Hamburg, ON. Not really a fan of stouts, but this is a solid offering.
