Notes/Commercial Description:
We use smoked and peated malts to create an intricate malt foundation. Our method of dry hopping with vanilla beans and oak chips pushes the depth of this stout’s flavor spectrum even further.

Thanks goes to BuckEyeNation for this. Bottled 07/19/06

Pours a nice black color, nice carbonation, nice fizzy tan head, nice little oil spills and lacing follow. The nose is of slightly roasted sweet malts, lots of vanilla, and some coffee/caramel. The taste is sweet, vanilla, and a nice touch of coffee/caramel. This stout is quite different to me than other's I've had so far, sweeter, and more vanilla in there. Medium body. Very drinkable, highly recommended.

Pours the deepest of dark mahogany, small brown head, little to no lacing.
Smell is sweet of vanilla, roasted caramel and a slight hint of coffee.
Very well balanced beer for the amount of flavors. Velvety smooth going across the taste buds. Feel the vanilla, roasted caramel and slightly sweet malt, all the flavors are smooth, nothing is overpowering. Nice. Something different in the finish, not smoke, dare I say woody/oakey?
It is a little thinner than I generally like a stout to be but the flavor makes up for it.

Thanks wasatch for this one; small capped bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled September 2007.

It is a very dark brew, although reddish brown highlights are seen around the edges. The voluminous head is coffee and milk colored, dissipating a bit too quickly.
Aroma is mostly roasted malts, with hints of oak and vanilla, but not very noticeable.
Medium bodied, shows the same tastes, although here the vanilla comes (slightly) more to the front.
An interesting stout, worthwhile.
