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.

Butters (4020) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Sampled at the the Sweet Sixteen Richmond Gathering. Black pour with brown head. I actually do see where they get the name for this. Vanilla max. Sweet roast max. Delicious imp stout. A little hot.

tia (1539) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - NOV 5, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2015 New. Tap @ Mekong. Very dark with thin head and decent lacing. Smells like chocolate milk,.dark fruit, and a little boozy. Dry and not too heavy. Roasty and a little sour. .Original 7/5/7/4/14 (3.7) from 11/12 Bottle. Back with ample light brown head. Smells toasty, choclatey, cherries- but not overwhelming. Reminds me of chocolate cherries. Nice dry finish.

Cybercat (4637) - 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!

bergstaden (2119) - Røros, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2011
Black with brown head - aroma of malts and some licorice/coffee - taste is of malts with some roast, licorice with lingering bitterness from the roasted malt, and there is olso some alchol in there - this was good, but had better

jkwood04 (5165) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 23, 2011
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 (7502) - 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!
