Beer added by: dciBA on 03-03-2010

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.

MAINE MEAN OLD TOM STOUT 10/28/14

Bottled 7/15/14. Label says to drink within 90 days, this is two weeks past that. Bought a month and a half ago. My bad.

Poured from the 16 oz. bottle into a Samuel Smith English tulip.

a: Opaque black with a two inch tall tan head which receded rather quickly to thick surface foam and patchy lacing.

s; Vanilla and milk chocolate.

t: Vanilla and chocolate with moderate hop bite. Any lingering bitterness is leavened by the intense malt and vanilla flavors, although some persistent bitterness does build later.
'
m: Medium to full, smooth, lots of carbonation tingle.

o: Very good stout, the dark chocolate malt dominates the added vanilla.
