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.

Ratman197 (11080) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2009
Bottle poured a clear dark brown nearly black with a lasting brown head. Aromas of milk chocolate, vanilla, light roastiness and light coffee. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of milk chocolate, vanilla, roastiness and a hint of esspresso with a smooth dry lingering milk chocolate finish. Very tasty dessert beer would go great with a great chocolate cream pie.

bierkoning (11044) - 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+.

Pitch black stout with a creamy thick moka head. Light cocoa in aroma, with light vanilla notes, and some coffeee beans. Smooooth bitter chocolate with vanilla lingering in mouth. Rich and complex, and pleasing. One word here: Silky! A very classy stout! Enjoyed with M_Heine and GonzoBeer, on Dec. 17th, 2005 (YeHaa).

FatPhil (10634) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 21, 2010
355ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
Aroma or vanilla and chocolate. Whisky or bourbon taste, and cocoa. Roast and bitter aftertaste which might give some hint of beer. Doesn’t have enough beer in it to be a stout, this is instead more of a gimmick with all its annoyingly fashionable additives.

Bov (10374) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 13, 2009
courtesy of Pascal Sauser - dark black colour with an elusive beige foam; fairly roasted nose with solid notes of vanilla, banana and black chocolate; medium-bodied, some sweet malt backbone soon overwhelmed by a pronounced bitterness; dry and bitter chocolatey and vanilla finish - subtle and complex, aboslutely superb
