Black ale with aromas and flavours of vanilla, dark chocolate, bourbon and roasted malt. The vanilla and cocoa marry nicely, without out-competing each other, to produce a surprisingly well balanced beer. This beer is mildly hoppy, but the cocoa introduces a touch of bitterness. Its colour may be intimidating, but it is a very smooth beer within reach of most beer drinkers. This highly appreciated dessert beer is brewed with organic fair-trade cocoa and first rate vanilla beans.

Enjoyed on-tap at the Mondiale 2008. A chocolate stout, with chocolate aroma. Dark with off-white foaming head,substantial lacing thereafter. A medium and creamy mouthfeel. Like a well blended chocolate shake. Some roast, very drinkable.

Nitro at Spuyten Duyvil. Pours near black with plenty of beige head. Aroma of cocoa and vanilla shockingly enough. The lacing on this beast was something else, leaving a spider-web down the entire glass. Flavor is lovely, with lots of sweet chocolate and vanilla. The taste of this greatly outperforms ST Choklat; it doesn’t feel forced at all. Palate was average and finished with chocolate and coffee. So glad I was able to try this. It’s damn good.

Nitro at Spuyten Duyvil: Near black pour with a dense creamy light tan head. The nose has a lot of grainy crystal malt, mild cocoa, vanilla and some herbal notes. Mildly carbonated (it was a nitro pour) The flavor has a medium roast with evident crystal malt graininess, almost wheat germ like. There’s also a very mild herbal character that I picked up, but couldn’t identify specifically. The finish is long and roasty. A well crafted Stout.

Nitro tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Almost black color, creamy head. Great lacing. Chocolate. Again, not very well carbonated. Could have benefitted from sharp bite. Very creamy mouthfeel.

I guess I will be that guy who wasn’t completely head over heels in love with this beer even thought I never even dreamed I would get a chance to try this brew. Pours just like all other nitro stouts with a milky strong tan head. Color of the body is totally black. Took a lot of time to warm up though. Aroma is nicely milk chocolate, light vanilla, and a hint of bitter chocolate. Taste is a bit mineral and paper dryness. Some nice ash/roast flavor as well. Very easy drinking but I was not so enamored with the flavor and was very bored near the end.

On Nitro. Pours a very dark muddy brown bordering on black with a medium sized creamy beige head. Lots of lacing. Aroma of baking chocolate and freshly baked brownies. Taste of fresh baking chocolate with a touch of brownie to it. This was a nice treat.
