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.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - FEB 11, 2010
THOUGHTS: Wonderful stout. A little heavy on the vanilla, but that’s what makes it unique. It also works well with the other flavors here. The cocoa is there, but the vanilla is the true star here. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a dark brown that was an opaque black in the glass with red highlights at the very edge and an average tan to light brown head that kept a thin sheet and left fair lacing. The aroma was moderate to heavy roasted, milk chocolate and cocoa malts; and vanilla. The initial flavor was sweet, lightly bitter and acidic; while the finish was bitter, rather acidic and sweet with a long duration. There was vanilla, cocoa, coffee, bitter chocolate and roasted malt. The medium to full body was silky with carbonation that was a bit soft with a chalky and slightly metallic finish.

vyvvy (5858) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 10, 2010
Pours very dark brown with a large dense dark tan head. The aroma has very roasted malt, lots of smooth chocolate, slight vanilla notes and dark caramel. This is very lush, smooth and rich without being too sweet. Medium body that’s thinner than expected. It’s smooth with a little bit of graininess and has some fairly soft carbonation. The flavor starts with roasted malt along with earthy and spicy hops along with some cocoa, a bit of spritziness and light coffee notes. The finish gets a bit creamier and displays dark chocolate and a lightly burnt malt taste. It would be nice if the vanilla stood out a bit more, but this is still an absolutely fantastic stout.

The taste is burnt malt, dark roast coffee, ash, vanilla and dark fruits with a slight bitter finish. Medium creamy mouthfeel. Damn good Stout. Thanks again J for sending this my way!

12oz bottle sampled at Sexual Chocolate Day 2010. Watery, opaque black with light, cloudy tan head. Nose is SUPER chocolatey, almost like a liquid candy bar, nuts, light coffee with cream. Flavor is very sweet but not disgustingly sweet, brown sugar, nice cake icing, light toast, light coffee with cream. Finish is super smooth, very drinkable.
