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.

16.9 ounce bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both nice. Aroma is malty and sweet, the brew smells like roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, dark fruit and a bit of coffee. The taste is similar to the aroma, but I think the roasty bitter flavors are stronger compared to the sweet ones. It tastes like burnt/charred malt, bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, coffee, and dark fruit. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick/coating and has good carbonation. This stout was more bitter than I expected it to be, but I did like it. However, at $9.99 a bottle I’m not sure if I would buy this very often.

Närmast svart vätska med ganska lågt beige skum. Ganska lätt doft av främst soja, nyrostat kaffe, vanilj och svarta vinbär. Lätt men lite oljig munkänsla tills beskan slår en. Den är rejäl och örtig och gräsig, men kroppen är förvånansvärt lätt. Smaken är lite söt hade nog vunnit på att ligga några år, lätt bränd, lite lakrits, soya och vaxkritor. Okej, ja t o m bra, men inte mer.

500mL. The pour is fairly deep brown looking black in the snifter with a giant, cascading, deep mocha head. Sticky lace. Good retention. Nose at first has some volatile compounds like sugary strawberry and grape soda that subside to allow cedar wood, dark chocolate, cinnamon, Scotch like booziness, hazelnut, and vanilla. Taste is very dry but also bitter with a good dose of waxy dark chocolate and mild chili pepper. Nutella and hazelnut come through. Palate is thinner but heavy bitterness takes your attention away from this. Better than I expected and actually very easy to drink. Thankfully no cigarette ash, no lemon tartness, no soap, so DMS, no acetaldehyde, no soy. Good stuff.

Earthquake beer. After our building evacuated, I figured I would go to my local to check if the bottles had been damaged, and then take shelter under the bar if necessary. Staff provided us with emergency rations, including this one, on draft. Almost completely black, small brown head. Aroma of malted milk balls and vanilla beans. Taste is silky smooth chocolate and vanilla milk shake with a burnt edge. Very nice.

Hard to resist a name like this, almost a dare. Sophomoric stuff notwithstanding, I was not expecting to enjoy this one as much as I did. Almost like an imperial oatmeal stout in terms of its depth, heft, and splendidly chalky mouthfeel, it’s got just enough of a vanilla presence to complement the wonderfully balanced chocolate and roasted malts. Very yummy, and I hope to have this one again.

Bottle shared at Natifest ’11. Poured black color with a medium frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy dark chocolate malt and caramel aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted coffee and chocolate sweet flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2011 great beer by the new brewer. i’ll add more later when im not drunk. oops. EDIT: Thick almost oatmeal stout, a no frills perfectly balanced stout, hops balance without giving that sweet or overly bitter finish.

Nice smell of artificial vanilla extract, some chocolate is hidden there too. The taste how ever is extreamly hoppy and i don’t think it goes together with the vanilla. Gonna let my age and see if i can kill off some hopps.
