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.

RRistow12 (503) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2015
Tasted from bottle. Pours dark black with a beige head. Aroma is cocoa, vanilla and coffee. Medium to full bodied with cloying mouthfeel that ends a little dry and bitter. Flavors similar to nose but a little more vanilla on taste. Nice mix of cocoa and vanilla. Smooth excellent stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dnicolaescu (1441) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUL 20, 2015
BOTTLE 341ML from bunget. Pitch black, espresso head. Strong aroma of cocoa and vanilla on a lightly roast background - feels like a desert. The flavour is light roast, smooth creamy body, pretty dry, moderate pungent bitter finish with a touch of ashes.

bigtaster (847) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 11, 2015
From a bottle into a snifter. Opaque black with large thick light brown head leaving lots of lacing behind. Aromas of cocoa, roasted barley, vanilla, chocolate, cold coffee, prunes. Full body, oily mouth-feel, medium bitterness on the finish, slightly dry. moderate sweetness, medium carbonation, slightly salty. Huge vanilla finish, lingers for several minutes, a bit of the dry cocoa lingers also. Really well made, flavors work well together, nothing over the top, this is a great desert beer.

Werckmeister (1303) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JUN 23, 2015
330ml bottle at home. black color, small coffee-colored head. smells earthy, light smoke, vanilla, cocoa, some sweetness, chocolate, coffee, light wood. quite nice smell. medium to full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes malty roasty, some smoke, coffee, inbetween light cocoa notes, lightly sour, vanilla. finishes dry and with some vanilla and coffee notes. quite nice, liked the smell almost a bit better than the taste. the vanilla notes destract in my opinion a bit, but overall I am not a fan of vanilla notes in beer.

Bottle from Saveur-Biere.fr. Pours black with thin beige head. Taste is smooth dark malts with tantalising creamy fudge emerging as it warms. Not a bad stout this.

Poured from a 341 ml bottle. Opaque black with a tan head that dissipated quickly. Dark chocolate and roasted malt on the nose. Those flavors continue on the palate with a hint of vanilla sweetness. Finish lingers with toasty goodness. A winner!
