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!

Bottle at Chriso’s Kook Tasting 09. Thanks to Crosling for this one. Labelled as Aphrodite. Black, tan head. Vanilla choc coconut aroma. Slightly powdery choc. Quite a lot of vanilla,, but I thought it was drinkable enough, just too much powdery choc. Dry finish. Yes, fails a bit in the mouth.

Opaque black, very small brownish head. Cocoa powder aroma with hints of vanilla. Cocoa powder and coffee beans in the flavor. A bit too much dark chocolate in the aftertaste for my liking.

Bottle at Churchkey. Black with a dark brown head that settles quickly to an edge and leaves delicate lacing. Aroma of chocolate bon bons and vanilla. Flavor of sweet milk chocolate, like Hershey’s syrup, with vanilla and cinnamon. Slightly bitter edge. Fascinating.

Creamy tan head topping black body. Aroma is perfumy/flowery, chocolate and vanilla. Taste is chocolate, vanilla, milkshakish (though not nearly as sweet), light coffee. Smooth and creamy full body. This beer is amazing, demonstrating the amazing powers a creative brewer possesses.

Bottle from ericandersnavy. Thanks man! Pours really dark with a slight tan head. Really rich dark toast aroma. Near full bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is smokey, toasty malt and chocolate. It is like candy, except it’s not all that sweet. Seems pretty well balanced. There’s a strange pervading flavor - think it’s vanilla. Not a problem. Whatever it is, it blends in well. Very nice. Finishes towards chocolate.
