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.

Pours pitch black with a thick tan head. Powerful aroma of chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. Flavor has a ton of bittersweet chocolate, roasted coffee and malt. No alcohol. A bit light on the body. I may be drinking this a bit too warm (60ish F), but it’s still good.

Dark but creamy brown body. Creamy head that just won't go away. Aroma of powdery cacao, vanilla beans. It tasted almost as good as some dark chocolate and vanilla truffles my wife made a while ago but with a small hint of bitterness in the finish, just enough to balance the sweetness. I'll definitely have to try a full glass of it also. Pretty damn good!

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2011 Thank you for the beer mcberko. Very nice stout with a slight hop edge. A little too thin, but a great stout overall.

Pours black with a little tan head to it. Smell is of chocolate, vanilla, and coffee. Has a taste of coffee chocolate but with a burnt after taste I can’t get over. Would be a great stout if it weren’t for the burnt after taste

Ported from BA. Appearance: Dark brown to black with a minimal head. When held up to the light, you can get a bit of red to shine through the middle. Smell: Vanilla with the most amazing chocolate ice-cream smell. Sweet malt smell comes in behind with a bit of an iced coffee aroma sitting in the background. Taste: Vanilla and dark malts take the forefront, with a very good balance of cocoa and coffee coming through in the background. Some grassy/floral hoppiness in the aftertaste, but fairly mild. Great balance between bitterness and sweetness. Mouthfeel: Slightly chewy, but not quite syrupy. It’s a god, thick feeling for a stout like this. Medium carbonation. Overall: Wow. I love it. I’m a big fan of vanilla in beer, and this is certainly no exception. As a stout goes, this is exemplary. Well balanced and well made.

Arome de chocolat vanillé. Robe noire opaque coiffé d’une mousse chocolat au lait. Goût de chocolat amère et soupcon de vanille. Palais assez crémeux et carbonatation douce. Excellent stout de Dieu du ciel!

Fantastic aroma of cocoa and vanilla. Taste is not as impressive with an overwhelming bitterness, but it’s still a terrific stout with Belgian overtones. Great overall.

Opaque black, thin cappuccino head. Mild aroma of cocoa powder, vanilla, sweetened coffee, toast, and some metallic undertones. Not too sweet, but rather thin and flat. Decent carbonation, smooth, and a light chocolate finish

Excellente! Un goût riche et velouté de café. Aucune amertume ou si peut. Une bonne mousse. Se bois très bien, une vraie dégustation.

Reviewed on the same night as the Peche Mortal and preferred this. Like Peche Mortal has additives in this case cocao and vanilla as opposed to coffee. Unlike the Peche Mortal which is a bit too dominated by the coffee flavour for me, the cocao and vanilla balance each other out very well. A stout with a roasty taste, a sweetness from the vanilla which is balanced by the bitterness of the cocao. The result is a thick, dark stout that is nevertheless very drinkable.
