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.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 8, 2006
Pours a opaque witha nitro creamy head. Aroma is sweet milk chocolate all the way. The body is med-heavy, though this brewery’s beers are consistently big bodied no matter the style. The flavors are both sweet, choclatey, with some dried fruits, raisins, figs. The finish is only lightly bitter, just perfect to balance out the sweet malts and cocoa.

Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival. Very black. Striking cocoa aroma. Medium sweet with clean mouthfeel. There’s som plums and lots of chocolate. Fairly light bodied. Well balanced and quite mild, only the cocoa really sticks out.

Ungstrup (30255) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2007
Draft at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007. What a great surprise to find this beer in Stockholm. A murky brown beer with a thin tan head. The aroma is sweet with notes of chocolate, alcohol, over ripe fruits, prunes, and honey. The flavor is sweet with notes of cocoa, wood, prunes, and coffee, leading to a dry bitter fruity and cocoa finish.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2007
Draught at SBWF. Black appearance with a small tan-coloured head. Deep sweet aroma of sweet chocolate, caramel, vanilla, coconut and sappy figs. Smooth and sweet (but not overly so) flavour of cocoa, vanilla, blue plums, caramel and sweet chocolate. Long finish with a subtle bitterness of chocolate but the sweet flavours of cocoa, vanilla and caramel dominates.

Sammy (9443) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2008
Enjoyed on-tap at the Mondiale 2008. A chocolate stout, with chocolate aroma. Dark with off-white foaming head,substantial lacing thereafter. A medium and creamy mouthfeel. Like a well blended chocolate shake. Some roast, very drinkable.

Imaena (2038) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 25, 2008
Draught @Mondial 08’. Chocolate and vanilla with roasted malt notes. I tried a lot of stouts that day and this was better than the St. Ambroise Oatmeal but not as good as the Peche. Great mouthfeel.

bedainedebiere (505) - Terrebonne, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 6, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2009 The thickness of this beer is out of this world. Very foamy, lasting head. Aggressive vanilla in the taste, not very pleasing taste to my liking, and a slightly bitter finish, although vanilla finally strikes back in the after taste. If a "mal de coeur", a heartache, is aphrodisiac to you... If you do like that kind of taste, this beer could be the best you could get, especially because of the texture. I personnaly enjoyed the "Déesse nocturne" a lot more and rated it very high.

Beerman6686 (5281) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2009
This poured a nice black color with a thick tan head. Aroma was of chocolate, vanilla and some roastedness. Flavor was much more of a typical stout than expected, not the overload of vanilla like I was expecting from other reviews, which is a good thing. Overall a very good and complex stout for its stature.
