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.

bastarda (441) - Freiburg, GERMANY - OCT 27, 2016
Packed with taste and aroma of roasted cocoa beans and vanilla beans, also roasted malts, hints of coffee and loads of bitter chocolate. So good they used natural ingredients resulting in the total absence of vanilla-custard/cheap chocolate sauce and went for the lovely earthy complexity of the real ingredients!

First impression of milk chocolate. Aftertaste of vanilla. Roasting is not over the top. Well balanced stout.

Odeur de stout. Pas de mousse. On goute bien le cacao et un petit peu la vanille par la suite. Elle passe très bien.

Bottle from Broue Ha Ha at the farm. Dark cola black pour with minimal head. Aroma is chocolatey vanilla even dark cherry. Taste follows. A bit of chocolate. Vanilla again. Not bad but a bit treacly.

Visual: (6-pack). Pours pitch black/brown without any real head, thin ringed retention with a medium island, barley visible steady nano-clusters along the inside perimeter.

Nose: vanilla’d molasses, caramel sweet rich barley malts. Slight nutty edge. (lvl-5)-pungency

Attack: light crisp, partially flat CO2

Mid-palate: molasses, (lvl-5)-sweetness, cola & root beer notes, sweet caramel barley malt

Finish: caramel’d toasted brown sugar, cocoa bean nutty, long vanilla charred malt hopped bittersweet hopped finish.

Summary: Fabulous. I probably sipped this one in record time. Delicious and engaging full flavours, rich complexity, clean finish. It could have used a bit more creaminess in the mouthfeel but a must try for stout lovers.
