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 youíll like this one. If you donít, get yourself something else instead.

BeerCast_Rich (1905) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2011
[tap at the BrewDog Bar, Edinburgh] Black with a thin tan head. Aromas of bitter coffee, roasted malts and a little vanilla. Bitter astringency on the palate, with a mocha flavour right down the middle. On the finish, some alcohol warmth, but I really wouldnít guess at an abv over 10%. Love the aftertaste of roasted coffee and vanilla [28042011]

28 April 2011, tap. black, looks thin, frothy brown head. great nose! great mix of espresso (soft) and mocha with a twinge of black pepper. med/thin body and slightly fizzy. this is a really rich, almost fake, milk chocolate taste w/ some burnt chocolate notes akin to a stout. pretty darn good!

Draft at RnH with Andrew, Streets, and Kyle. Dark pour with nice creamy slightly carbonated off white head. Aroma is roasted malts, vanilla. Mouthfeel is nice, creamy with notes of vanilla, sweet malts, roast, slight coffee flavor and chocolate.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 22, 2011
Sampled at RnH. Had this directly after Yin. This although more alcohol seemed less aggressive than Yin... Had a sweet and creamy malty flavor, absolutely loaded with vanilla. Lactic and delicious!

iowaherkeye (2700) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - APR 20, 2011
Draught at RnH. Black with a small tan head, to a thin ring before long. Roast, char, and chocolate up front in the flavor with some meaty soy behind. Flavor does t show much vanilla til 1/2 way through, but it doesnít really play with the chocolate, rather itís more toasty burnt vanilla. Bitterness peaked at a 4 with a little pine and alcohol, otherwise burnt roast vanilla in the semi-dry finish. Full body with low prickly carbonation. Thought this was going to more of a dessert beer, but it was just a meh burnt roasty RIS base. 20 minutes laterthe nose opened up to show some nice floral pine hops, and the overall taste seemed less burnt and richer. It goes from a 3.1 to a 3.4. Also a better head roused with better retention once warmed.

gyllenbock (6203) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2011
On tap at Mikkeller Bar, April 2011. Black with a small tan head. Nice aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and vanilla. The taste was rather sweet but nicely balanced between the vanilla and roasted malt and the bitter chocolate. I also liked the taste of Espresso. A very drinkable Imperial Stout with a nice body.
