COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2007
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.

lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2007
Draught at SBWF 2007. My notes say that this tasted very, very brown. Beautiful chocolate and vanilla come together seamslessly. I like that the grain bitterness is so subtle, makes for a very enjoyable stout.

Marsiblursi (3028) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2007 (Draught) Pours dark brown to black. Creamy chocolate and vanilla up front in the aroma with lesser tones of plums, roasted grain, salt liquorice, asphalt and a touch of coffee. Fat and creamy nose. Dark creamy chocolate and vanilla ice cream in flavour with light notes of prunes but also some more subtle fruits in the backgrund. Also some hints of coffee, mint and maybe some sal ammoniac. Chocolate lingers with some hop bitterness and some roasted grain bitterness. Fantastic velvety and creamy mouthfeel. Medium bodied. No other chocolate stout comes close to this fantastic brew. Now make this Imperial…

Draught@SBWF 2007
Opaque black, very small brownish head. Cocoa powder aroma with hints of vanilla. Cocoa powder and coffee beans in the flavor. A bit too much dark chocolate in the aftertaste for my liking.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2007
Draft at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007. What a great surprise to find this beer in Stockholm. A murky brown beer with a thin tan head. The aroma is sweet with notes of chocolate, alcohol, over ripe fruits, prunes, and honey. The flavor is sweet with notes of cocoa, wood, prunes, and coffee, leading to a dry bitter fruity and cocoa finish.
