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.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2009 en fût au DDC. bière noire onctueuse avec une mousse épaisse, brune et durable, goût prononcé de café, finale trop amère à mon goût, ce qui rend le produit moins intéressant.

Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival, 2007-09-22, 7-3-7-3-14=34
Black color. Phenolic aroma, sweet, roasted malt. Medium body strength, but round, with a unique flavor of dark chocolate. Monodimensional, good, not impressive.

Black color. Strong aroma of medium chocolate. Sweet flavor, medium-light body, very strong chocolatey flavor (reminds me the chocolate Easter eggs), original. Good.

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 4, 2007
On tap at the brewpub - oh god, I can’t believe how amazing this beer is. Appeared the perfect shade of pure obsidian - blacker than black, none more black - with the perfect tan head. Aroma is totally awesome - big notes of roasted malt, dry cocoa powder, sweet vanilla and some plum. Flavour much the same along with some whiskey and a slightly lactic finish. Really robust and thick, something that I find lacking in a lot of "stouts". Really big body here. Perfect. Palate is wonderful with chocolate at the front of the mouth that segues into a sweet vanilla and there’s a touch of warming alcohol in the throat. Perfect. That’s a lot of "perfects" and this one nearly is.....

Draught at SBWF. Black appearance with a small tan-coloured head. Deep sweet aroma of sweet chocolate, caramel, vanilla, coconut and sappy figs. Smooth and sweet (but not overly so) flavour of cocoa, vanilla, blue plums, caramel and sweet chocolate. Long finish with a subtle bitterness of chocolate but the sweet flavours of cocoa, vanilla and caramel dominates.
