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.

Rasmus40 (13548) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2011
Black with a big brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, vanilla and a little alcohol. Flavor is very sweet and rather bitter. Dry and bitter finish. Smooth and soft. The vanilla works well because it doesn’t dominate. Very nice. 310311

jrallen34 (3495) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2011 This one is thanks to Jeppe for not only brewing it but bringing it to our tasting...Pours light black, brown on the edges, with a light tan head that has good retention but light lacing...The aroma is awesome as it totally nails vanilla, just enough to get what the notes but not so much to overwhelm other flavors which are chocolate and coffee...The taste is equally impressive in terms of the vanilla which is subtle and throughout the whole taste. Nice bitter chocolate notes balance this vanilla. Really easy to drink and supremely enjoyable. A great stout worth tracking down.

JorisPPattyn (8389) - Ursel, BELGIUM - FEB 28, 2011
Dark beige head over deep black beer. Very roasted/burnt; fatty roasts, and chocolat, suggesting bitter and sweet. Bitter chocolate³, like one of those archi-expensive bars of ultra-% chocolate. Bit of cigarette ash retronasal. Very slick, alcoholwarming, and well-bodied. All in all, a bit undimensional, neutral.
