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.

Bottle in a trade with Dany, thanks. Pours a dark impy stout color with a tan rim and head. Aroma of cocoa, smoke, and some chocolate. Flavors were best at a temp. a few degrees warmed than cellar. Chocolate, dry/bakers cocoa, and vanilla. Pretty nice.

Brouwerij (884) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2014
Bottle thanks to Alemax. Pours brown with orange tan head, settles quickly with essentially no lacing. Aroma is sweet, vanilla, cocoa, toasted and roasted malt, and cane sugar. Flavor is roasted up front, toffee, and lightly bitter up front, lightly smoky, with a vanilla and dark chocolate finish. Soft to moderate carbonation, medium body, and smooth texture.

Un col qui tombe rapidement,un liquide de couleur noire avec une faible effervescence mais qui somme toute nous attire.Des notes de choco ,vanille de sucre doux et boisé monte en tout douceur dans mon nez qui en redemande.Au goût,c’est soyeux,huileux,doux à l’entré suivi des notes vanillé,choco noire et d’une finale légèrement amère probablement du à la torréfactions des grains de café.Son 6.5% ni parrais pas vraiment.Une stout aromatisée des mieux balancé.Toute une déguste pour terminer se dimanche soir bien tranquille dans mon Lazboy !!

On tap at Bier Markt. Looks like a stout. This is some sweet smelling beer. Lots of vanilla and chocolate on the nose with some coffee. Same notes for the taste, but it’s not too sweet and the vanilla is more subdued on the taste.. Well balanced. Creamy mouthfeel. Gets better as it warms up. A absolute joy to sip.

Poured out a very deep brown with mocha head, and immediately began wafting out dark chocolate mocha scents. Tasted of dark chocolate, vanilla, with a hint of coffee bitterness

Poured out of a bottle. Had it with a 10oz ribeye. Lots of big flavours. A smooth drinking dark brew. A great experience. The description on the bottle says it all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ljthiessen (159) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 27, 2014
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.

JesseMartineau (52) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 24, 2014
341ml bottle. Pours jet black with frothy dark team head. Aromas are awesome, vanilla hits you first then cocoa and chocolate and then coffee and some oak. Tastes of vanilla, bitter chocolate, espresso, some nuttiness, resin even a bit of dark fruit. A smooth even slightly oil mouthfeel which finishes with a lingering bitter taste. This is a tremendous beer.

pours black with medium, brown head. Aromas of roasted malts, dark chocolate, espresso and vanilla. Flavors resemble the nose, with the roasted malt and cocoa leading the charge, but the vanilla is present. nice rich mouthfeel, smooth and silky with a nice bitter finish. Fan-freakin-tastic.

Bootle. Pours dark with some tan head. Aroma is cocoa, vanilla and coffee. Trade is bitter chocolate, vanilla and more coffee. Creamy, smooth and overall excellent.

Sigmund (4812) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 16, 2014
341 ml bottle, from a Quebecois co-worker. ABV is 6.5%. Black colour, low tan head. Strong and pleasant aroma of cocoa and vanilla. The flavour is not very sweet, but has plenty of cocoa powder and vanilla, with strong coffee and bittering hops in the finish. No aphrodisiaque effect detected - maybe I am immune?
