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.

Cybercat (4078) - Georgia, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Pours a deep, rich sable only a whisker or two above black with a thick, foamy, fine-bubbled light tan head that leaves some good lacing. Strong aroma is smoky with tones of semi-sweet chocolate, coffee, caramel and molasses - and, yes, there is a subtle vanilla note as well. Flavor has notes of roast coffee, chocolate, caramel, vanilla and molasses. Smooth texture has above-average body and a fair amount of fizz. This one’s a winner, so look for it!

500ml bottle (Soft DK) in a snifter. Pours black with a thick, lacy, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, a little chocolate and coffee and vanilla, and some floral hops. The flavor is strong of the roasted notes, with hints of everything else, and a little alcohol. Thick. A good imperial stout.

Ughsmash (7387) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 19, 2011
500mL bottle. Poured very deep brown with a dense, sticky dark tan head. The aroma picked up burnt ashy roast, dark chocolate, and coffee with hints of cherries and toffee.. I really enjoyed it. The flavor found warm, burnt black patent malts paired with lesser dark chocolate.. vanilla beans and a hint of cherries around.. peppery notes, smoked malts, and light ash on the back-end.. very tasty. Medium-plus bodied, dry, and very roasty on the palate.. could’ve used a touch more carbonation.. overall a great brew.

Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - OCT 19, 2011
Pours a black color with a mediumsized beige-brown head. Aroma is roasted and burned with notes of coffee, liquorice, chocolate, charcoal, tar , some grassy hops and noticable alcohol. Flavour is burned with charcoal, tar, coffee and dark chocolate. There’s also some grassy hops and rather harsh, unbalanced bitterness. Some alcohol, which gets a bit too much for me, is notacible in the finish. Fullbodied with soft carbonation. Not my cup of imperial stout to be totally honest.

JavierAldea (31) - , SPAIN - OCT 19, 2011
Espectacular imperial stout con aroma a vainilla cacao, y mmh galleta maría.. (No es diacetil, es el refrito de vainilla y Maris Otter??) Perfecta carbonatación en barril... algo inferior en botella.. viene a pasar en todas las que llevan una ligera guarda presurizada en frio... En todas las que se fabrican en Amager ocurre... No obstante de lo mejor que he probado este año. Jeppe, GRACIAS!

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2011
550ml Bottle: Aroma of malt, chocolate, cream, vanilla, and a hint of roasting. Poured very dark brown in color with a small, tan head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer. Opaque. Sparkling. Flavor is light to medium sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of malt, chocolate, roasting, vanilla, slight wood, and light alcohol. Medium to full body. Tingly, then dry, slightly chalky texture. Average carbonation. Malt, chocolate, roast, vanilla, slight wood, finish is lightly sweet and light to medium bitter. 10.4%ABV is noticeable in the flavor but not hot or overwhelming.

sebletitje (7879) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 15, 2011
50cl bottle from Struise beershop. Brune foncée, col épais moka. Arôme houblonné, malt chocolat avec note de cacao, vanille vient en arrière le tout est agréable avec une bonne bouffée de houblons laissant une petite note d’agrumes et épice. En bouche, alcool se ressent de suite, malt grillé, caramel, houblon et citron pour une amertume moyenne, grains et poudreux. Sec au palais, pointe de noisette avec une fine douceur de gousse de vanille, le tout garde un côté de malt grillé/caramel et chocolat agréable avec un profile en retrait de houblon fleuri et citron.

wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 13, 2011
Tasted on draft at Local Option some time in mid-2011. Pours completely black with a thick tan head that leaves uneven lacing. The nose is chocolate milk, along with some vanilla, coffee, and light coconut aroma. The flavor is chocolate milk, vanilla, light coconut, with the coffee bitterness much more prevalent. The body is full and creamy with average carbonation and a long chocolate milk and lightly bitter finish.
