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.

craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Draught at Churchkey. Nose holds huuuge milk chocolate, truffle, plum, raisin, and bits of lactic creamy sweetness. Flavor is much of the same, with definite fruit presence. Fuller bodied than some of Evil Twin’s stouts. Pretty nice, but not great.

Chaseman (50) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 30, 2011
Awesome looking black color with a nice beige head. Aromas are of caramel, chocolate, and slight vanilla. It goes down like a malted milkshake, with a very thick, creamy mouthfeel. Taste is of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and some vanilla.

500ml bottle (bierkompass.de)
7 chocolatey roast, a touch of burnt bitterness.
5- Black. Tight tan head.
7 Chocolatey again, but burnt and bitter too. Quite potent biting hoppy retronasals. Burntness dominates.
4 Full smooth palate, gentle carbonation. Very roasty dry burnt finish. As it warms it becomes slimier. 14 Solid stout. Burntness and bitterness a touch astringent after a while.

Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 13, 2011
Richmond 16th. Black and oily. Dark chocolate aroma. Flavor matches. Alcohol clearly present. Surprisingly prickly carbonation. Sort of simple in some ways, very straightforward one note flavor, but it is a successful one note.

zizzybalubba (1785) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 8, 2011
500 mL bottle from Grape & Gourmet (listed on the label as Soft DK). Pours black with a creamy brown head. Aroma of smoke, dark chocolate, vanilla, and faint roasted coffee. The taste is bitter dark chocolate with a slight vanilla finish. The vanilla gives way to a lingering smokiness. Creamy mouthfeel. If you can get past the name this one extraordinary beer.
