UPDATED: AUG 20, 2011 great beer by the new brewer. iíll 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 donít think it goes together with the vanilla. Gonna let my age and see if i can kill off some hopps.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pours with a black body and a fading tan head. Some legs left upon swirling. Aromas are vinous, raisins, big, chocolate, nougat. Really sweet aromas. Some chocolate. Flavors are sweet and lightly smokey with raisins and chocolate. Viscous with really light carbonation. Warming. Tasty.

Strong aroma of coffee. Abundance of vanilla in the flavor. This beer was loved by my beloved, and a guaranteed treat from Evil Twin.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pretty nice stout. Chocolate and vanilla aromas is dominating but there is something artificial about the flavours. Itís also on the sweet side and doesnít really come together.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The beer is nearly black in color with a small brown head that doesnít have the greatest retention.
S: Aroma is big time vanilla. Dominated by the vanilla with sweet chocolate. There is a bit of cherry and some roasted malt and cocoa powder. Mild licorice and a touch of molasses round things out.
T: Thereís a slight...funk to it that I canít exactly describe. Lots of cherries and vanilla. Sweet chocolate with a little bit of roasted malt and coffee. Thereís a hint of metal and a hint of booze.
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Fairly smooth on the tongue.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased at systembolaget in Uppsala sometime in the middle of June, 2011. Overall, this is a very flavorful stout and one that I will certainly buy again.
Pours with a deep, dark brown color and a medium-sized beige head. The lacing is decent, but Iíve seen far better.
The aroma is powerful: vanilla, dark chocolate, burnt malts and a hint of alcohol. It smells like a desert in a bottle.
The mouth feel is creamy, although less so than expected. The is taste is bitter sweet: vanilla galore, dark chocolate, roasted coffee beans and booze. Wonderful with desert.

Draught @ Gastropub Nordic. Rated on 2.4.2011
Sweet aroma has vanilla and chocolate. Flavour is roasted with lots of chocolate, which feels a bit artificial though. Also hints of vanilla. Very nice chocolate stout, which should however be enjoyed in small amounts. The chocolate is not nice any more after three deciliters.

Pours opaque. Medium quite frizzy head that dissapears after 30 seconds.
Alcohol, chocolate, some coffee and blueberries
Very interresting taste. Mild in the beginning, quite sweet in the middle and bitter in the end. Taste is coffe, some dark chocolate. Overall a quite good imperial stout...

Black/brown pour with creamy tan head and lace. Black coffee, sour malt, and chocolate aroma. Vanilla, burnt coffee, and good malt bitter. The Dookie covers the abv well. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Nice beer that just missing clicking on all cylinders for me.
