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.

Pinball (11897) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2010
pitch dark, brown smooth creamy head. aroma is toffee, chocolate, faint roasted stuff, vanilla, sweetness (cocoa). flavor is licorice, chocolate, faint toffee, spicy tinge, caramel. aftertaste is roasted stuff , tofee and chocolate. palate is quite thick. overall a very flavorfull beer, but a bit too much toffee-sweet and chocolate, too chocolate-dessert like. Well blended and lots of flavors to explore, but a bit too far to the sweet side to really hit it home. but it’s close...

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 3, 2010
Pours deep black with tan head, aroma is full of chocolate and vanilla. Taste up front is huge chocolate and vanilla working together, dark chocolate notes lead into bourbon and coffee, and finishes a bit roasty. Mouthfeel is unbelievably creamy. Excellent brew!

dogfish120love (1114) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 1, 2010
Pours a very dark brown (almost black) with a medium to thick rich brown head. The aroma is fantastic: vanilla, chocolate and a little soy sauce along with coffee. The flavor is roasted coffee along with some vanilla and chocolate. It is absolutely delicious. It is a perfect mixture of flavors, without being overly sweet. Very complex.

What a great beer! Pours an inky black with nice lingering head. Big flavours in this one - lots of malt, lots of chocolate. I found it hard at first to pick out the vanilla, but it must be what givesit a richness and a kind of exotic, unusual sweetness. Great thick and smooth mouthfeel with a long, pleasantly bitter finish.
