Erzengel (2718) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2014
Cask @ GBBF14. Smooth roasted nose. The beer starts intense, vanilla with a nice roasted stout-body. Interesting, but fits great! Roasted hints, Espresso, coffee and nice smooth vanilla. The aftertaste is smooth, vanilla & roasted malt, nice bittered, not too intense, highly drinkable, great!

Cask at Craft Beer Co., London. Brown pour, light tan head. Great roast and light vanilla nose. Medium sweet flavor, good vanilla, some chocolate, nice roast. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, some dirt, faint bitterness, earth, roasty malts, lingering vanilla, light mocha. Awesome beer.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2011
Cask Conditioned Handpump Craft Beer Co London. A black beer with an off-white to beige coloured head. Full of vanilla in the nose, over and above anything else really although I’m a big fan of vanilla so that’s OK by me. Beautifully balanced in the mouth with the vanilla working with the roasty dark malts. Not over roasty, just a really tasty stout.

Honestly...vanilla float. Quite creamy, and easy to drink, with the sweet vanilla and coffee. Good.

BeerViking (2573) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2014
Cask at the Magpie, deep dark red-black with a loose coffee coloured crema, vanilla, coffee and a little strawberry on the nose. Roasty palate with coffee notes, touches of burnt treacle and liquorice, and just a hint of choc and vanilla. Dry and roast body contrasts nicely with a bittersweet finish.

suprchunk (2266) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Black pour. Slight tan head that lasts almost the whole drink. Might be because I keep swirling it though. Little bit of lacing. Huge vanilla nose followed by some hints of chocolate and coffee. Taste is the same. The vanilla gets a little overwhelming at times, but is nicely balanced. Not too shabby.
