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.

I got this as an extra in a trade. I'm not much of a stout drinker, but this one was tasty. Super smooth and easy to drink. There is a wonderful oakiness which I know was intended and just a slight hint of vanilla over the roasted malt body. I am impressed...this beer may have just opened a new door for me.

Got this as an extra from a generous BA. Pours a very dark brown-black color with a medium, tan head that diminishes quickly. Scent is quite oaky. More than expected. Some lovely vanilla aromas with chocolate...milk chocolate to be exact. Some nutty notes as well. Taste is vanilla at first. A GOOD amount of vanilla...which is never a bad thing in my book. Some oak flavors with chocolate and malt. Slightly bitter finish with more sweet vanilla. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied...especially for a stout. Drinkability is very high. Overall, this beer is very interesting. Quite sessionable for a stout with so much flavor. Lacking in the mouthfeel...but also in the ABV...so it goes hand in hand. Great stout for those wanting one they can drink more and more of without getting drunk, while also having some flavorful nectar to sip on.
