Maine Mean Old Tom
From Maine Beer Co. – Stout aged on natural vanilla beans.
Maine Beer Co. – Maine Mean Old Tom – 16.9 oz. poured into a goblet. 6.5% abv. Thanks Nana!
Appearance: Pours black with a white ring around the top.
Aroma: Roast, vanilla, coffee, oreo cookie.
Taste: Coffee and dark chocolate like roasted malt. Real vanilla pods. Spicy hops.
Mouthfeel: Very active carbonation. Full bodied.
Overall: This stout is money. Not too sweet, not too dry. The vanilla is present, and doesn’t come off as artificial. Also on the cusp of being too strong for a session, but highly drinkable.
