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.

12-oz. Thanks, glouglou! Pours jet black with a comically gigantic creamy tan bedrock of mousse atop the beer. Thick sheets of foamy lace. Just looks decadent and delicious in every way. Humongous milk chocolate candy bar nougaty nose. Just sweet and delightful. You can hardly believe it’s only 6 and a half. Creamy medium body with present but understated carb. Plenty of milk chocolate and mild roast on the mid-palate. Long milk chocolatey finish. Can hardly wait for this one to be a regular fixture on the local scene. Great, great, great stout.

Bottle @ Den stive jyde fra Skive’s shop, Odense. Pours pitch black with a small creamy head and lacings. Lots of Belgium chocolate. Reminds me of Rogue chocolate stout. A bit of vanilla. Smooth and easy. Ends dry and bitter. Its good . . . But not the best stout out there!

11.2 oz bottle via trade with daknole, thanks bro. Pours a deep dark black with an ample foamy dark beige head. Aroma is subdued and not what I was expecting. What is there is a Tootsie Roll scented chocolate dominating most of the aroma with softer notes of vanilla extract and grains. Flavor is better then the aroma with a bit more vanilla coming through, chocolate, raostiness and coffee gronunds adding in the roasted burnt flavors. Medium bodied with rather strong bubbly carbonation. Just like Peche Mortle loses a lot from keg to bottle I have a feeling this one does as well. Gonna have to head back up to Montreal and get some of this one tap directly from the source. Still a very good beer regardless.

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2009
Pours a pitch black with a thin tan head. Aroma is overpowering chocolate - wow! Tastes rich and delicious, muted roasted notes but plenty of vanilla bean and sweet chocolate. Good bittering hops, unobtrusive and generic. Very low carbonation, lightly creamy body. This is a real dessert of a beer - yum!

Bottle. High creamy and lasting brown body leaving nice long lacings. Body well black it is indeed. Lovevly intense smooth and sweet choccolate vanilla cream aroma. Flavor is a bit thin and sweet choccolate vanilla cream with some bitterness as well, mild though. Low carbonation. Long bittersweet choccolate aftertaste.

Plovmand (6309) - Helsinge, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2009
Bottle. Black body with a medium beige head. Roasted aroma with some chocolate and coffee. Flavour is at first coffee then comes the sweetness from the cocoa and light vanilla. Medium bodied. Lovely finish with the sweet cocoa mixed with the bitter roasted malt.

joergen (20558) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2009
Bottle at home. Black coloured with a medium sized beige head. Sweet and roasted aroma of dark chocolate, liquorice, cocoa powder and vanilla. Sweet and roasted flavour of dark chocolate and vanilla with notes of cocoa powder and liquorice. Roasted finish. Medium bodied. The vanilla is a bit too dominating.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2009
Bottle, many thanks to Gunhaver for sharing. Poured pitch black almost zero head. Nose is cocoa, dark fruit, and coffee. Medium bodied, very smooth with mild carbonation. Flavor is strong cocoa, fruity hops, coffee, and a touch of vanilla. Very well balanced and mild. Finish is roasted with lots more cocoa. Very tasty beer!

Ibrew2or3 (6779) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Courtesy of THE Gunhaver, thanks man, I’ve been looking forward to trying this. Pours very dark with amber edges and thin tan head. The aroma is roasty, some coffee, a touch of caramel and a thin layer of earthiness. The mouth is rich but doesn’t head all the way to velvety. It has loads of tasty malt flavors to go along with coffee, creamy caramel, blunted burnt malts, a modest level of fudge brownie and soft spice notes way in the background. Great mix of flavor here creating a soothing rich balance.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2009
Bottle from Radiomgb, thanks! Almost black and opague. Roast, vanilla and chocolate in the aroma. Malty sweet flavor with vanilla, pear and chocolate. Some roastbitterness in the finish. Luscious and very drinkable. Cacao in the aftertaste. Only a bit too simple to get a 4+.
