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.

A dark brown beer with a small dissipating tan head. The aroma was a nice cocoa aroma. The taste had more noticeable cocoa than vanilla but you could tell some of the bitterness came from the cocoa. I thought the mouthfeel was a little thin with a slight grittiness(the cocoa maybe?) to it but an enjoyable stout.

Quite enjoyable overall, but it did seem to be lacking something somewhere. The vanilla and chocolatey notes were pretty spot on with a nice malty backbone holding everything together. And is was velvety smooth, but something kept this beer from being exceptional. Had my last bottle with a piece of Portillos chocolate cake. That cannot be healthy, but sure was tasty.

le nez de cacao et de vanille est présent. Belle couleur. Peu d’effervescence. On ressent bien le gout du chocolat. Appréciable mais pas monstrueuse (ne tient pas longtemps en bouche)

341 ml bottle. Pours jet black, with a tiny hint of ruby. Nice big, frothy tan head, leaving some lacing. Big aroma and taste - soft cocoa, roasted malt and vanilla bean mesh really well, nothing dominant over the other. Really enjoyable!

What a great beer! Pours an inky black with nice lingering head. Big flavours in this one - lots of malt, lots of chocolate. I found it hard at first to pick out the vanilla, but it must be what givesit a richness and a kind of exotic, unusual sweetness. Great thick and smooth mouthfeel with a long, pleasantly bitter finish.

Bottle from the LCBO. Opaque black pour with a small short lived mocha head. Great noses of chocolate, vanilla, coffee, roasted nuts and a smoky woodiness.Light milky sweetness with a more prominent chocolate bitterness. Mouth is full and creamy with a lingering finish. Well balanced stout with lots of character.

On tap at Tremont Tap House: pours like motor oil.notes of vanilla, bourbon, cooking chocolate, roasted malts. Taste- pow coffee blast, chocolate engulfs your tongue. Smooth, more subdued hop notes further along. Distinctively awesome
