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.

reggiedunlop (3657) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Pours pitch black with a thick mocha head...amazing lacing and retention! Aroma has roasty vanilla...doughy...a bit like an oatmeal cookie without cinnamon. Flavor has vanilla beneath a very roasty impy...burnt notes and dark espresso...bitter dark chocolate. Mouthfeel is medium and silky/creamy with a very roasty/burnt dry finish.

Barrelbelly (748) - BELGIUM - JUN 30, 2012
Strong vanilla and chocolate aroma. Taste first full of vanilla, then dark chocolate, roasted malts and coffee beans and a vanilla aftertaste. Great beer.

Pitch black beer with a good head. Nice roasted malts, coffee and vanilla. Vanilla is there for sure. Decent brew, lots going on in this one.

thepeter (326) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2012
Got this at Brew Dog Camden a little while ago. Poured a deep black with a small head that remained there and left a decent bit of lacing. Aromas of chocolate molasses and LOT’S of Vanilla. Falvours are quite similar with again tons of vanilla, caramel, molasses, and some bitter cocoa in the finish. Full bodied and very soft cabonation made this a really nice sipper. Overall a very nice sweet stout as long as you like vanilla. . .Which I do.

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Draft at Brasserie V. Opaque black body with a respectable beige head. Doesn’t come off as big as the ABV would suggest, the vanilla mellows and balances it out well. Outstanding Vanilla Imperial Stout, lots of depth. Smooth milk chocolate, vanilla, a touch of roast coffee. Big Cream Stout, wouldn’t bat an eye if you told me 7.5%. Sugary, not much hop action other than some delicate balancing. Quite an enjoyable beer, mellow on the palate, but huge chocolate tones.

Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2012
500ml bottle as Soft DK bought at Ølbutikken and shared at the Absalon tasting session ’12. Frothy tan-coloured, lacing-head. Jet black body. Choc-coffee aroma with mild roastiness. Similar taste profile supported by vanilla pods and a welcome malt-bitter tail. A powerful, grown-up brew (Copenhagen, hotel room, 12.05.2012).
