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 youíll like this one. If you donít, get yourself something else instead.

(draught) pours a pitch black colour with a frothy brown head. aroma of burnt popcorn, roasted chestnuts, light brown sugar, chocolate fudge and cream. flavour is more of the same, chocolate fudge, toffee and vanilla prominent, with heavy notes of caramel, roasted almonds, sweet spices, cappuccino and a light hint of alcohol in the finish. heavy-bodied with soft carbonation.

Ferris (12429) - 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

olio (9216) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 8, 2012
50 cl bottle. BBE 2015.
Originally rated from draught @ Gastropub Nordic on 20110401. (8-4-7-4-16)
Pours pitch black color with a small off-white head. Quite strong milk chocolate on the nose, mild vanilla, caramel, mild toasted malts and cocoa powder also. The aroma reminds me of some of the ST Blackwater series brews.
Flavor is also quite milky with some lactose, chocolate, toasted malts, the vanilla is much stronger on the flavor, caramel malts and cocoa are there too. Some hoppy fruits on the finish as well. Sweet and creamy palate, ashy and a bit bitter chocolaty finish. Alcohol very well hidden, nice sweet impy.

AMAZING BEER. Super dark with amazing vanilla and coffee aromas. Same in taste, with a great long bitter-sweet aftertaste. The alcohol is not detachable. VERY VERY VERY NICE
