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.

In bottle (Quebec City); pours very dark black. Aroma is amazing .. very noticeable cocoa and vanilla notes. The taste is not as good as the aroma ... cocoa and sweet notes for sure, though a little hoppy and bitter at the finish which takes away a little from the beer. Overall a very good beer .. just not great

Unde (422) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2014
Black beer with head going to the sides. Aroma has vanilla, lots of dark chocolate, cocoa and roasted malts. And what a taste! Straight 10/10! There is sweet vanilla, dark chocolate, cocoa beans and some roasted malts to balance the sweetness. Quite full body with low carbonation. For a sweet tooth like me, this was exceptional beer, just mind-blowing.

Bottle. Beautifull black color. Aroma if rosted malt, chocolate and toffee. Flavour of dark chocolate, caramel, vanilla. Long finish with coffee, when it fades caramel is showing up. Excellent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black as your hat. Aromas of dark chocolate, roasted malt. Slight hint of coffee. Smooth and thick. Great density for a smaller stout. Cocoa powder is the overwhelming flavor. Carries through and collects some roasted malt as it grows. All facets provide bitter notes that avoid any dessert-beer cloying. Longer it sits the more roasted malts (coffee) assert themselves. Lacks a little depth but as the few notes here are so accomplished, it compensates well.

A Dieu du Ciel! Újabb gyöngyszeme már ránézésre is itatja magát, a főzde söreinek címkéiből áradó elegancia pedig egyszerűen magával ragadó. Egyértelmű, hogy kávészínű testtel nyit, melyen krémes, cappuccino-hab telepszik meg. A kakaóporos, árnyalatnyi karamellával megspékelt, kissé scotch ale-szerű illatok puha és bársonyos szobájában külön helyiségrésszel bírnak a hívogató, vaníliás aromák, mi pedig örömmel fogadjuk az invitációt: itt végre megpihenhetünk egy darabig. Az mindenesetre biztos, hogy egy végtelen harmóniát sugárzó, megnyugtatóan kellemes illathalmazzal találkozhatunk, mely az előbb felsorolt összetevőkön túl némi pörkölt, egy egészen halványan tőzeges felhanggal is bír, valamint a titokzatoskodás olyannyira távol áll tőle, hogy az aromák által rámutatott ösvényen megindulva a testének vastagságára vonatkozó elképzeléseink is kellően pontosan tükröződnek vissza később. Nem várunk tehát valami kőolaj-stout vehemenciájával bíró fenevadat, ez már csak az alkoholfok mértékéből ítélve is felesleges volna. Örömmel vesszük viszont tudomásul, hogy az illatok által sugárzott kiegyensúlyozottság és nyugalom az ízében is visszaköszön; a közepesen szénsavas testben megelevenedő pörkölt maláta okozta komor hangvételt mesterien oldja fel az étcsokoládé simogató játéka, valamint a vanília sejtelmes, sörökben annyira jól mutató, bársonyos varázsa.
