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.

Complex aroma of chocolate, coffee, vanilla and a hint of malt. A rich ebony colour with a well laced short lasting head. An amazing dark chocolate taste, with a complex palate of phenols, espresso and a hint of bitterness and smoke.

Ataraxia (369) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Opaque black, thin cappuccino head. Mild aroma of cocoa powder, vanilla, sweetened coffee, toast, and some metallic undertones. Not too sweet, but rather thin and flat. Decent carbonation, smooth, and a light chocolate finish

VDuquerroux (272) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAR 12, 2014
Bottle, 341mL. Home. A black beer with only brown hues on the top through the light. Small thin beige head. Poor persistence. Aroma of wood, toast, smoked, chocolate and coffea. Medium bitter and sweet. Refreshing. Medium body and texture. Soft carbonation. Bitter finish with some sweet call-backs. Overall, a very good beer. Something special. Nice experience.

Dark brown/black color with thin medium brown head and little lacing. Aroma is mostly cocoa with some deep fruit notes. Flavor is very smooth, has thick cocoa, creamy vanilla, slightly woody, and a light hop finish. Great!

budedou (389) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - MAR 5, 2014
le nez de cacao et de vanille est présent. Belle couleur. Peu d’effervescence. On ressent bien le gout du chocolat. Appréciable mais pas monstrueuse (ne tient pas longtemps en bouche)

Comme la description le mentionne, le nez de cacao et de vanille est plaisant. Belle couleur près du noir, opaque. Peu d'effervescence. Un peu mince en bouche mais c'est une bonne bière dessert.
