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.

Black. In the aroma: roast, chocolate, licorice, vanilla. Taste is of creamy bittersweet chocolate, only slightly bitter and tart. Delicious. Very subtle and perfectly balanced. Might be my new favorite stout, up there with Samuel Smith.

Aroma of vanilla, coffee, chocolate, oak, with small hint of smoke. This is a very nice stout that has very nice level of vanilla in it, not exaggerated but noticeable, surely the best stout under 7% I’ve had, a bit thin, but that’s expected.

On tap at Prohibition Pig. Pour is deep brown, almost black with a small tan head and decent lacing. Big cocoa, vanilla beans, dark fruits, raisins, brown sugar, figs, lactose, and coffee in the aroma. Taste is dark chocolate, plums, raisins, sweet vanilla, dark fruits, brown sugar, toffee, and earthy hops. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Sweet, yet balanced. Really tasty.

Bottle from Saveur Bière. Big, dark, creamy head. Black body. Smells of chocolate, vanilla, cocoa, barley, citrus. Tastes of vanilla, cocoa, roasted malt. Sweet at first, followed by a blunt bitterness. A great combination of both I’d say!

Não gosto muito das stout, prefiro as imperiais, mas essa agradou bastante. É a melhor stout que provei. Fácil de beber várias e é mais encorpada do que outras do mercado. Mais uma boa cerceja dessa excelente cervejaria.

C’est évidemment Divin, pas possible autrement !!! Des moines, chez Brasserie Dieu du ciel, non ? On s’inscrit où, pour la messe?

Smell of vanilla, chocolate. Black colour, dark brown head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt. Velvety and slightly ashy palate. Very soft carbon. Both sweet and bitter. Heavy body. Great stuff.

Tonkun (1047) - New Jersey, USA - APR 27, 2015
Bottle. Dark almost pitch black pour with a big bubbly mocha head that dissipated relatively quickly. Vanilla, mocha, vienna coffee, oak, toffee, cream. Medium body with a light to medium carbonation that lasts on your tongue. Acidic, bitter, oily and sweet coffee finish with whip cream. Like having a relaxing coffee with a creamy cake. Delicate but strong. Nice

Homer321 (2551) - Melboring, Florida, USA - APR 23, 2015
Bottle. A ton of chocolate in the aroma. Black pour. Medium brown head. Great lacing. Taste is a vanilla smooth extacy. Pure chocolate as it warms.

TATE (352) - Lubec, Maine, USA - APR 23, 2015
Bottle. Pours black with minimal head. Vanilla aroma and flavor. A bit of chocolate too. Was great with chocolate as a desert beer. Solid stout.

mircoas (187) - ITALY - APR 19, 2015
33cl @ bottle. 6 euro di bottiglia. Inizio a dire che forse non li vale tutti questi soldi, però la birra è ottima. Stout aromatizzata alla vaniglia (anche se non l’ho sentita) col solito retrogusto di caffé. Più calda rende meglio, forse sarebbe da riprovare.
