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.

Had this on tap at Dulles Airport. From notes.

A - Black pour with one finger of creamy tan head. Good carbonation coming up. Spotty lace and a half finger of retention.

S - Cola, sugar, sweet dark malt, some chocolate.

T - Roast, chocolate, sweet mostly. Not too much going on.

M - Very smooth, mild carbonation, medium body. Nice.

O/D - Fairly drinkable. Not sure where the smoke or barrel are, but it wasn't too bad. Scored lower because it lacks what it advertises.

I really like stouts, and this has been one of my favorites for a couple years now. I picked it up at Martin's this time.
A- Can't see through it, and it pours a great looking 1' froth.
S- Nothing crazy here, just a hint of vanilla like the bottle advertises.
T- A great, smooth taste that hits you with that vanilla flavor. It's so smooth but still has that roasted flavor of a stout.
Overall, like I said before it is one of my favorites, and it's always easy to find here in Virginia so I pick it up pretty often.

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Dark Brown/Black with one finger of fizzy brown head, no lacing
S - Really nice roasty aroma, you do get some slight hints of a woody character, slight vanilla, and a touch of smoke.
T - Bitter coffee rind, earthy and woody tones as well, a little hop bite, roasted malt.
M - A little too carbonated, would prefer it to be more silky, but still good.
O - This is a classic beer to me, one of the beers that got me into craft, and I still enjoy it to this day. the oak presence is really nice, and not dominating. Very earthy in flavor, but overall an outstanding beer.
