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.

UXO (470) - CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
Pours opaque brown/black with one finger of tan head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, moderate lacing. (4/5) Nose is dark chocolate, coffee with milk, roasty dark malts, vanilla. (9/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter. (9/10) Full slightly creamy body, low sustained carbonation, sticky mildly bitter finish. (4/5) Excellent. Nice complexity of bitter flavours from the roasted malts, with the usual suspects of coffee and dark chocolate making appearances, but tempered by a lactose sweetness that adds a milky flavour, assisted by the creamy texture. The hop bitterness is not first apparent, but is gradually revealed during the long complex finish. Another stellar beer from DDC. (17/20)

awiseman01 (469) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - NOV 12, 2009
Bottle from TWCP. Pours pitch black with a brown edge and minimal head. Nose is vanilla and chocolate malt. Taste is like a hersey chocolate candy bar in a glass then infused with vanilla. Smooth and creamy, excellent taste.

Intriguing aroma of vanilla with a dark pour, balanced taste and warming mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

alagnak (467) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Bottle. Deep dark inky beer with a wisp of a tan head. Nose was sweet milk chocolate and a nice roasted cocoa bitterness. Flavor was a little underwhelming, sweet chocolate again ni the front, a big slug of vanilla and a lightly btter coffee at the end. Finish is a little sticky, and more of the vanilla. It was good, but the nice roasty/bitter nose didn’t play in the taste much. Had it - I think this would be a really nice one. As it is, a well done beer.

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - OCT 29, 2009
11.5oz. bottle served in a snifter. Poured a deep brown/black with some red highlights. Finger of tan head. Not much going on in the aroma, a bit of fruitiness and some chocolate malt. Mouthfeel is very smooth. On the lighter side of medium bodied. Chocolate malt in the flavor with a little vanilla. Some hop bitterness in the finish. Chocolate lingers in the finish. This didn’t really do a whole lot for me. Aphrodite version.

A Dieu du Ciel! Újabb gyöngyszeme már ránézésre is itatja magát, a főzde söreinek címkéiből áradó elegancia pedig egyszerűen magával ragadó. Egyértelmű, hogy kávészínű testtel nyit, melyen krémes, cappuccino-hab telepszik meg. A kakaóporos, árnyalatnyi karamellával megspékelt, kissé scotch ale-szerű illatok puha és bársonyos szobájában külön helyiségrésszel bírnak a hívogató, vaníliás aromák, mi pedig örömmel fogadjuk az invitációt: itt végre megpihenhetünk egy darabig. Az mindenesetre biztos, hogy egy végtelen harmóniát sugárzó, megnyugtatóan kellemes illathalmazzal találkozhatunk, mely az előbb felsorolt összetevőkön túl némi pörkölt, egy egészen halványan tőzeges felhanggal is bír, valamint a titokzatoskodás olyannyira távol áll tőle, hogy az aromák által rámutatott ösvényen megindulva a testének vastagságára vonatkozó elképzeléseink is kellően pontosan tükröződnek vissza később. Nem várunk tehát valami kőolaj-stout vehemenciájával bíró fenevadat, ez már csak az alkoholfok mértékéből ítélve is felesleges volna. Örömmel vesszük viszont tudomásul, hogy az illatok által sugárzott kiegyensúlyozottság és nyugalom az ízében is visszaköszön; a közepesen szénsavas testben megelevenedő pörkölt maláta okozta komor hangvételt mesterien oldja fel az étcsokoládé simogató játéka, valamint a vanília sejtelmes, sörökben annyira jól mutató, bársonyos varázsa.

Pour is black with a small tan head with good lacing. Nose is of coffee and some very faint chocolate notes. Taste is of sweet sweet mocha. Very refreshing on the palate and shockingly light on the tongue.

darrennelson12 (453) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2014
In bottle (Quebec City); pours very dark black. Aroma is amazing .. very noticeable cocoa and vanilla notes. The taste is not as good as the aroma ... cocoa and sweet notes for sure, though a little hoppy and bitter at the finish which takes away a little from the beer. Overall a very good beer .. just not great

cakanator (452) - South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 23, 2010
12oz bottle. Love this when it first came out. Appears very dark brown with coffee color head. Aroma is vibrant cocoa and roasted coffee with a hint of vanilla. The cocoa and vanilla hit the palate first then a nice drier mid with a sweeter finish. For the alc % and style its one of the best moderately prices stouts out there. Will always recommend.

budedou (445) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - MAR 5, 2014
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)
