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.

On tap at the Vienna Inn.

Nice appearance in the glass, opaque brown to black color, tan head is frothy. Aroma is nice and roasty, with coffee and dark malts. Taste is also roasty in nature, bitter chocolate and roast coffee. Some vanilla come through toward the finish. Not real bitter in the end, this is an easy drinker.

Great smooth mouthfeel and a nice light to medium body. Again, an easy to drink stout with a great taste.

Very nice Stout. Even without the barrel aging, be beer would prove to be a worthy brew. The beer opens with a viscous very dark brown color with basic opaque barriers. Thinly headed with good lacing, the foam endures the session with confidence. Smells richly malty with coffee, chocolate, and smooth vanillas. Flavors are again, very rich and robust with sweet malts, roastiness, vanilla, and a hint of currant but ultimately a cleanly fermented goodness. The beer is super smooth and velvety due to the barrel aging and vanilla silkiness. Finishes medium sweet and medium dry with a clean lingering maltiness. Moderate alcohols keep the beer far away from roughness, fusals, or astringency. A tasty beer for any occation.

Thanks JNN4V!

a- bottle poured into a nonic pint, one finger fades to a nice layering of lace, dark color.

s- woody, sweet vanilla, toast, toffee maybe a touch diacetyl.

t- vanilla, oak, smooth toasty biscuit, tough toffee, and a bit of coffee/chocolate sweetness.

m- medium to full, silky/smooth, coating.

d- nice, this isn't the most complex or mind blowing stout out there but it's very drinkable and does down easily, i'd drink this again!
