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.

Idiosynkrasie (3584) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 24, 2014
341ml bottle. Pitch black colour with late awakening, small, creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, tan head. Roasty dark malty aroma, hints of liquorice; while warming up hints of vanilla and cocoa make an appearance. Taste is dry, roasty dark malty, slightly metallic; vanilla and cocoa appear in the finish and carry some sweetness with them. Slightly sticky palate without oily texture. Too much vanilla for me; in general modulating the scope of the style (or pushing it to the limits) in areas (catchword: marshmallows) not prefered by me.

Un col qui tombe rapidement,un liquide de couleur noire avec une faible effervescence mais qui somme toute nous attire.Des notes de choco ,vanille de sucre doux et boisé monte en tout douceur dans mon nez qui en redemande.Au goût,c’est soyeux,huileux,doux à l’entré suivi des notes vanillé,choco noire et d’une finale légèrement amère probablement du à la torréfactions des grains de café.Son 6.5% ni parrais pas vraiment.Une stout aromatisée des mieux balancé.Toute une déguste pour terminer se dimanche soir bien tranquille dans mon Lazboy !!

On tap at Bier Markt. Looks like a stout. This is some sweet smelling beer. Lots of vanilla and chocolate on the nose with some coffee. Same notes for the taste, but it’s not too sweet and the vanilla is more subdued on the taste.. Well balanced. Creamy mouthfeel. Gets better as it warms up. A absolute joy to sip.

Poured out a very deep brown with mocha head, and immediately began wafting out dark chocolate mocha scents. Tasted of dark chocolate, vanilla, with a hint of coffee bitterness

Poured out of a bottle. Had it with a 10oz ribeye. Lots of big flavours. A smooth drinking dark brew. A great experience. The description on the bottle says it all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Thanks to SlovakSniper for this one. Fairly thick, dark brown pour with a small, medium-brown head. Sweet aromas of chocolate, vanilla, caramel and a touch of booziness. Flavour is less sweet. Cocoa, vanilla, roasted malt, and some very subtle but rich notes of coffee, nuts, smoke and dark fruits. Nice rich creamy texture. Brilliant stout.
