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.

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

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.

Pours very dark, with think creamy head. Chocolate, coffee and roasted malts are prominent in the aroma. Smooth and extremely tasty with chocolate, coffee and hints of vanilla. Very enjoyable beer!

Pours a dark black with lots of carbonation. Heavy vanilla taste with a nice malty balance almost like heaven. I absolutely love this one.

Smells heavenly. I wish all stouts smelled like this. Vanilla and tons of chocolate and honey. Nice and strong flavor with a great bitter flavor to balance.
