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.

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)

Bottle. Thanks to SlovakSniper for this one. Fairly thick, dark brown pour with a small, medium-brown head. Sweet aromas of chocolate, vanilla, caramel and a touch of booziness. Flavour is less sweet. Cocoa, vanilla, roasted malt, and some very subtle but rich notes of coffee, nuts, smoke and dark fruits. Nice rich creamy texture. Brilliant stout.

Had this one at the RB Pittsburgh tasting. First one of many that day that blew me away. Beautiful black liquid with a large head. Sweet aroma of what I thought was coffee but upon inspection was more of a chocolate/vanilla mix. If this was a little thicker, it would be near perfect.

pours pitch black with small tan head. aroma is mild coffee, vanilla, milk chocolate, burnt malts. drinks insanely smooth with a very pleasant mild coffee and vanilla coming upfront and a long lingering milk chocolate. as it warms the chocolate reminds me of nesquick or something of that nature. very very smooth and easy drinking and utterly amazing

Tweety (377) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2010
There are far too few outstanding single stouts out there, a gap which this bottle fills ably. Overpowering dark chocolate and vanilla with a backing of roastiness in a package that drinks extremely smoothly. If I could get this regularly and cheap I’d drink it by the case.

LearninBeer (376) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - FEB 4, 2010
Pours almost black with a light brown head, mostly diminishing. The aroma is roasted malts, coffee. The taste is nutty, hints of chocolate, a little bitter. The body is medium light, thinner than I would like.

CLevar (376) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2011
Bottle. Pitch black pour, creamy mocha head, decent retention, fades to thin lacing. Aroma is toffee, coffee, chocolate, and cream. Light vanilla is present. Also some nice roasty notes. Taste is just great. Nice vanilla cream, backed by coffee and chocolate roasty notes. Creamy mouthfeel. A great beer, with a incredible amount of complexity for a relatively low ABV stout. A little pricey, but you pay for quality!

Ataraxia (369) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 15, 2014
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

jethrodium (366) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 18, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours black with a small tan head leaving significant lacing on the glass. Coffee smell and taste. Medium mouthfeel. Very smooth. Tasty beer.
