COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: This stout looks like soft dookie and some will say it smells and tastes like it too. If you like a thick, creamy and utterly vanillalicious stout you’ll like this one. If you don’t, get yourself something else instead.

brnandersen (3204) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2012
As Soft DK. 50 cl. bottle poured in to a snifter. Dark brown colour with a creamy, tan head. Sweet aroma with coffee, vanilla, chocolate and roasted malts. Some red berries, coffee beans. Light hints of alcohol. Taste is light sweet. Full body with a creamy texture, soft carbonation. Long lasting bitter finish with lots of vanilla, coffee beans and chocolate. Some liqoirice. Indeed a very good beer but the alcohol shows a bit too much to be a really excellent beer.

What in tarnation! This beer is epically delicious. The name is terrible though, but they’ve obviously come around to that, changing the name to the abbreviated "DK". Super smooth, notes of vanilla, chocolate, and super well masked alcohol all enjoy center stage in this lovely stout.

Draft at Underground. Black pour, opaque, thin light brown head on top with some sticky edges. Nose is coffee, sweet chocolate. Taste is rich and sweet chocolate syrup, coffee, light hop. Full bodied with medium carbonation. A bit rich, some alcohol notes. A bit too rich and sweet for me.

Ron (3507) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 25, 2012
On tap at Tap and Mallet. Pours black with a fairly large mocha head that slowly fades leaving some lace. Aroma is sweet chocolate, vanilla, coffee, molasses, and a small amount of hops. Taste is slightly bitter with hints of chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. Very creamy and good. Really enjoyed this one.

Ferris (12137) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 19, 2012
Draft - Dark chocolate, sweet liquor and vanilla notes almost like smelling a box of chocolates. Deep black with a thin brown head. Dark bitter chocolate with a candy sweetness. Nothing too special for me.

color negro completamente opaco, espuma beige, aroma intenso, mucho cuerpo, poco carbonico, sabor maltoso, predomina el torrefacto y sobre todo el chocolate, pero mantiene el punto amargo, interesante y facil de beber
