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.

Bottled. Very dark brown color, lasting creamy head coloured in beige . Intense vanilla aroma with smokiness of vanilla cigar. Dried plums, licorice and some coal in the background. Int the flavor, the alcohol hits at first hiding almost immediately under roasted and slightly charred maltiness. Roasted and sweetish maltines dominates at first, leading into dark fruitiness, dark chocolate and deeply roasted coffee. The finish is dry and bitter but it has delicious flavor of vanilla ice cream and light nuttiness in it. Soft and smooth texture, sticky bitter finish with a hint of alcoholic warmth. Tremendous beer, it really surprises and changes its nature all the way. Loved it.

A: pours basically black, with a finger and a half of coffee with cream colored head. The head does leave an almost nitrotap like lacing. S: big anise and chocolate. A dry floral hop. Dark roasted malt. T: chocolaty, anise. nice floral, lightly bitter hop, almost makes the chocolate pop out more. M: creamy, both in the overall mouth feel and carbonation. O: first bottle that tastes almost exactly the same as it does on tap.

Ibrew2or3 (7312) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 1, 2011
Half liter bottle pours dark darkness with nice looking mocha head. The aroma has some rich coffee, malts balls, dark roasted malts and some black patent malts mixing with chocolate malts. The taste is dark roasted malts goodness, chocolate malt balls, rich dark roasted coffee, some spicy black licorice and yummy baker’s chocolate. Delicious rich brew.

Shared by emacgee. Thanks Ethan. Looks like ultra soft (liquid) dookie. dark brown with small sudsy tan head. nose of vanilla, dark chocolate, vinegar, ash; quite nice. Flavor is very bitter, with the booze more apparent, dark bitter chocolate. Did I mention it’s a little bitter?

Bomber from Marcus. Pours quite black with a dark tan head. Smells like darkish milk chocolate. Near full bodied. Flavor is darkish milk chocolate with a lot of burnt malt and some vanilla. It seizes the tongue. Crushes it with dark flavors. It’s not harsh, but it effects the tongue as though it were. Quite bitter, quite astringent. Definitely a strong statement. Finishes like sucking on bakers chocolate. Bitter!

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Bottle. Pours a viscous black with tan head. Aroma of dark roast and semi- sweet chocolate. Flavor is much the same with a nice dark roasted bitter that adds a slight tang...malty. Mouthfeel is heavy with low carbonation. Overall, damn good solid brew!

Thanks bauermj! Pours dark opaque black with some light passing through. One finger of dark chestnut brown head. Nose shows lots of dark malts, bitter chocolate, and black coffee. Very roasty with a light acidity and sweetness. Roasty and bitter flavor, definitely a bitter acidic bite to it. Bitter chocolate and black coffee. Bitter on the palate with a nice viscosity.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2012 Bottle. Black/dark brown liquid with medium tan head. Smells of coffee, licorice, chocolate, ash, bread and maybe a little hoppy. Some dark fruits as well. Quite burnt. Taste is also quite burnt with light sweetness and medium bitterness. Medium to full bodied with ok carbonation and long, lingering, burnt finish. Not boozy at all. Quite good but a bit too burnt. Would have preferred more coffee/chocolate.
