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.

Stout sucrée, bière dessert délicieuse en petite quantité, l'arôme vanille est un peu artificiel à mon goût. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz in a snifter on tap at Stillwell. Pours jet black with a light tan head, light brownish notes. Nose of cocoa and vanilla, roasted malts, with a creamy chocolatey-vanilla flavour. Velvety smooth in mouth. Light roasty finish. Splendid.

Stout légère avec des saveurs prononcés de chocolat, fudge, café rôti. Se termine avec un soupçon de vanille pour enlever l’amertume du cacao. Un peu trop pétillante.

Bottle. Pours a glossy obsidian black with cocoa-brown highlights and a cinnamon-colored ring. Nose is baking chocolate, butter, coffee, vanilla, smoke, molasses, maple -- there is a LOT going on here, and it all goes together in one big happy morass of beery happiness; I just wish there was more of it. Not as sweet as the nose would portend; rich, smoky, bitter, and astonishingly complex -- yet remains somewhat subtle, never stepping into the imperial range or becoming excessive. The finish goes on and on, and continues to reveal as time goes by. Breathtaking.

Pours dark black with a tan colored head. Aroma is cocoa, vanilla and some coffee. Taste has some bitter chocolate, vanilla and coffee. Creamy mouthfeel. A bit lighter than you expect. Very good.

Apparence: D’une couleur noir, elle est coiffée d’une mousse ordinaire d’une bonne durée. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des notes de malt rôtie, de chocolat noir et de vanille qui marie tous ensemble. Saveurs: D’une bonne ampleur, c’est le malt rôtie et le chocolat noir qui valent en bouche. Ensuite, vient une légère amertume qui semble provenir d’avantage du chocolat que du houblon. Fiche technique : Style: Stout Format: 341 ml Taux d’alcool : 6,5%

This was a really great stout. Taste like you are drinking a luxurious dessert. Taste of vanilla, cocoa, and coffee. Aftertaste is bittersweet, with a bitter coffee chocolate mouth feel and then finishes off with a nice thick sweetness. Would love to try more.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
Dégustée en fût sur place à St-Jérôme (verre au coût de $4.25) le 28 juin 2009. Bière noire opaque. Col très épais et très persistant, beige crème, crémeux et compact. Très effervescente, bulles fines. Odeur de cacao et de chocolat présente mais pas trop marquée, avec un soupçon de vanille en finale. Très douce, assez sucrée, assez amère. Goût de chocolat au lait marqué. Peut-être un peu trop sucrée, un peu sirupeuse, mais très bonne néanmoins.
