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.

Nice aroma of chocolate and coffee. Black color with nice white head. Taste is rather bitter with strong notes of dark chocolate, vanilla hidden behind, not really percievable. Full-bodied, creamy texture, average carbonation. Overall, this is a nice original stout, but not my favourite though. Tastes more like a dry stout. I prefer the Mikkeller BeerGeek Breakfast by far. I precise that I tried it both for apertizer and dessert with black chocolate.

Chocolat noir, noisette, vanille, une peu de café. Crémeuse, et délicieuse, goût intense et texture surprenante pour bière à 6,5 % .Un incontournable qui n’est pas chère et très accessible.

Comme pour la Péché Mortel, cette bière ne devrait pas avoir besoin de grandes présentations pour vous convaincre d’y goûter et fort probablement de l’adopter. Rares sont les Stouts réguliers qui présentent une aussi grande panoplie de saveurs s’accordant aussi bien tout en ayant une belle intensité.

Another revisited DDC beer. Black pour, good sized mocha head. Thicker body and good lacing. Vanilla and dark chocolate up front in both the aroma and taste, light booze (which works well here), charred malt. Slick oily mouthfeel. Drinks far bigger than the stated 6% and change.

Servie d’une bouteille à un verre. Bière noire (noire), la lumière ne passant même pas à travers. Collet beige ayant disparu. Nez extrêmement sucré : vanille et chocolat prédominent. En bouche, le sucré du chocolat et de la vanille est extrêmement bien balancé par l’amertume du houblon et du cacao. Finale longue et amère. Trop sucrée pour nous, mais une excellente bière somme toute.

Drank from a sample glass, poured from a bottle, shared amongst friends. Pours black with nice little tiny head bubbles. This beer had a very odd mid flavor, that was just completely bland. Once the beer warmed up a bit that bland flavor gave way too some nice vanilla goodness!

341ml bottle. Pours very minimal brownish head and goes away fairly quickly. Has a very dark appearance, almost like motor oil. Aromas of cocoa, coffee roast, and chocolate. Flavours of chocolate, coffee, strong cocoa taste, hints of toffee and caramel. Nice balance of flavours throughout. Pretty smooth and easy drinking for a dark thick brew. Has a little bitterness on the palate. Pretty weak lacing and a somewhat watery mouthfeel. Still very tasty beer and would drink again for sure.

Puur zwart bier met mokkakleurige schuimkraag die snel wegebt tot fijn laagje. Aroma en smaken van koffie, veel (maar niet té veel) vanille, chocolade, beetje likeur. Fluweelzacht in de mond. Zoete aanzet met licht bittere afdronk. Absolute TOPstout.
