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.

PhillyCraft (5585) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Bottle compliments of Tommy, pours pitch black with medium khaki head, light to medium sporadic lacing. Aromas of espresso, dark cocoa, roast, coffee bean, cereal malt, licorice, nougat candybar, pumpernickel and vanilla bean. Body is medium to full with good carbonation. Finishes lightly bitter which is perfect for the style. Flavor lingers for a minute yo. Exceptional stout from French Canada.

A 500ml pour on tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas into a Moeder Lambic snifter glass. It was a pitch black colour with a just less than two finger tanned head that had great retention and lacing. Very nice aromas of dark chocolate, vanilla and coffee bean. Tastes of dark chocolate truffles with vanilla and a light bitterness. Smooth, medium to light bodied with light carbonation. Overall it looks and smells great. Body is a bit on the light side, but it was smooth and well balanced. One of the best stouts out there.

Bottle. Finally grabbed this one. Best part about rating something with 1300 reviews is that I don’t feel obligated to say anything at all about the beer.

Bierridder_S (660) - BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2016
06/08/2016 - bottle from Malt Attacks, Brussels. Dark brown colour with small dark beige head. Nose is mocha, chocolate, caramel. Taste is light roasted, nice mocha, some licorice, light vanilla. Nice scent and flavours but somehow it didn’t reallyvtouch me. Way from bad or dissapointing but had expected more.

bewyder (395) - FRANCE - AUG 9, 2016
Noire opaque, nez houblon résineux, vanille, bouche forte sur cacao, vanille, fruits rouges, sirop, malts grillés, amertume en finale. Une bière complexe mais un style et des arômes qui ne me conviennent pas trop, je ne prends pas grand plaisir. Bouteille 33cl achetée chez Bières cultes, Paris, France, bue le 02/08/2016.

Dark pour, nice brown head. Taste is rich chocolate, coffee, and some vanilla, subtle roastiness. Good mouthfeel, nice dry finish.

Chocolat noir, noisette, vanille, une peu de café. Crémeuse, et délicieuse, goût intense et texture surprenante pour bière à 6,5 % .Un incontournable qui n’est pas chère et très accessible.

Adamsville (196) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2016
Comme pour la Péché Mortel, cette bière ne devrait pas avoir besoin de grandes présentations pour vous convaincre d’y goûter et fort probablement de l’adopter. Rares sont les Stouts réguliers qui présentent une aussi grande panoplie de saveurs s’accordant aussi bien tout en ayant une belle intensité.

Johnsense (1322) - - JUL 23, 2016
Another revisited DDC beer. Black pour, good sized mocha head. Thicker body and good lacing. Vanilla and dark chocolate up front in both the aroma and taste, light booze (which works well here), charred malt. Slick oily mouthfeel. Drinks far bigger than the stated 6% and change.

Arseniq33 (62) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 19, 2016
Servie d’une bouteille à un verre. Bière noire (noire), la lumière ne passant même pas à travers. Collet beige ayant disparu. Nez extrêmement sucré : vanille et chocolat prédominent. En bouche, le sucré du chocolat et de la vanille est extrêmement bien balancé par l’amertume du houblon et du cacao. Finale longue et amère. Trop sucrée pour nous, mais une excellente bière somme toute.

Drank from a sample glass, poured from a bottle, shared amongst friends. Pours black with nice little tiny head bubbles. This beer had a very odd mid flavor, that was just completely bland. Once the beer warmed up a bit that bland flavor gave way too some nice vanilla goodness!
