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.

VDuquerroux (268) - 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 (384) - 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.

WheatKing (1290) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 4, 2014
Small bottle. Pours black, opaque, tan head. Nose is chocolate ice coffee frappe thingy. Flavour is chocolate chips in the foreground, roast in the background. Oily and silken but not considerably thick. A "milkshake" beer done very well, more refined than most of its type. Amazing that it’s only 6.5%.

Danyel (669) - Colorado, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is very nutty, coffee, chocolate. Has a really great full flavor. Tobacco, lots of nuttiness, vanilla and chocolate. A lot of dark flavors going on. A good dryness on the finish. A great beer.

onceblind (4014) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Deep black pour with a fast dissipating light khaki head. Amazing aroma of sweet dark chocolate, vanilla, caramel, a light touch of bourbon-ish qualities, and roast. Flavor is magnificent. Sweet vanilla and dark chocolate M&Ms, sweet mild bourbon, caramel, and a finish of lightly boozy chocolate, honey, caramel, roast, and gentle bourbon. Soo dang tasty.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2014 On rotating tap at Vancouver Craft Beer Market in Vancouver. An almost black beer with a very frothy and generous tan head. Cocoa on the nose. A big chocolate note and slight coffee note on the tongue. A bit of vanilla in there somewhere. No hop detected. Finish is sweet, but not overly. Nice.

And July 13, 2014 on tap at Alibi Room in Vancouver. I took greater notice of the vanilla this time out. Very silky smooth with the cocoa.

Bottle. Pours opaque black with a medium brown head and nice lacing. Aroma is roasty, chocolate, vanilla, a bit of tobacco. Flavor much the same, light sweet and light plus bitter, roasty and rich. Medium plus body, somewhat creamy. Finish has lingering bitterness. Considering this beer is only 6.5%, it is quite impressive.
