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.

jamestulloch (3201) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 26, 2015
Bottle from BottleDog, Edinburgh. Black body with a thick beige head. Good lacing. Aroma of chocolate ice-cream, vanilla pods, Coco Pops and a hint of rum. Flavour of winter berries, milk chocolate and filter coffee. Medium body with a sleek, oily mouthfeel. Soft prickle of carbonation. A sumptuous beer.

Oh my god, what amazing full flavor for only a 6% stout. Tons of cocoa and vanilla put this in the same class as 12% imperials but more sensible.

RichardGretton (4588) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2015
Bottle. Black beer with a strong brown coloured head. The aroma is chocolaty and milky with gentle roastedness. The flavour is roasted and bitter with a milky and creamy feel. Overall a nice smoothly flavoured stout with good bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tognetta (669) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - DEC 19, 2015
Totalmente negra, espuma marrom de boa formação e persistência, aspecto cremoso. Aroma carregado de baunilha, chocolate, licor. Paladar tras mais cacau, baunilha, amargor levemente torrado, bem balanceado com o dulçor licoroso. Corpo denso, média carbonatação. Aftertaste prevalesce o torrado doce. Esperava um pouco mais de potência no sabor, mas não tem como não gostar, fácil de beber.

Heather_B (246) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 16, 2015
Dark dark opaque brown pour with pretty much no head.. Dark chocolate and vanilla with some obvious roastiness in aroma. Flavors are similar - chocolate and some vanilla and roasty. A bit more boozy than I’d like.
