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.

Revisited 03-28-15 after initial review last August.
Bottle dated 02-18-15 (this puppy is fresh) into pint glass. I'd call it a ruby brown - not red, but not brown either. Thick light tan head of coarse bubbles reduces to a thin and long-lasting film.
Taste is, unfortunately, underwhelming. Vanilla and dark malt initially, then...nothing.
It's way too thin for a stout. Too much carbonation. As a result, it's not as smooth as I'd expect.
There are a lot of really good stouts out there. This isn't one of them.
