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.

Theydon_Bois (12860) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2015
Keg at Mikkeller Viktoriagade, CPH, 20/08/15. Pitch black with a rich tan covering that dissipates edgeward. Nose is soy sauce, spice, dark malts, chocolate doughnut, biscuit. Taste comprises chocolate Chuppa Cups, vanilla streak, toffee. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok impy, lacks a bit of oomph but a drinakble number.

northropfrye (2807) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 24, 2015
Shared with dreamflower on our anniversary. Dark black body, brown head, fades quickly, not much lacing. Roasty malts, biscuit, coffee in the aroma. Taste is rich roasted malts, a touch of sweetness with a strong coffee bitter finish and a touch of acidity. Lactose. Fizzy palate with a soft finish. Nice beer.

Patrickctenchi (4949) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle: (Soft DK label) Pours thickly black with a short, dark brown head. Melted chocolate/vanilla ice cream aroma. Heavy, sweet, dark milk chocolate malt and vanilla bean over dark roasted coffee and cola flavour. Awesome stuff......truly dessert-worthy..... Barely a trace of alcohol..........nice...............

Je déguste en ce moment la Soft DK qui m’a conduit ici. La bière est noire et en surface, un simulacre de mousse de couleur brun brûlé qui tente de s’agripper au verre mais sans grand succès. Les arômes sont très orientées sur le malt torréfié. La céréale occupe une grande place dans ce bouquet olfactif d’où émanent également des effluves de gousses de vanille ainsi que qu’un sucre roux. En bouche des saveurs composées de café fort et d’alcool sont puissantes et plutôt dérangeantes. La vanille revient accompagnée de fruits rouges des champs dans une longue finale qui ne se résous pas sur quelque chose de bien précis. C’est liquoreux, plutôt sirupeux. Cette impériale stout est loin d’être la meilleure de cette brasserie.

Bottle. Black colour with a small brown head. The aroma has hard-roasted malts, chocolate, burnt coffee. The flavour is sweet with toffee, bitter chocolate, vanilla, a good bitterness. Great heavy and smooth mouthfeel. I’m a fan.

Boytle from brewdog online, bottle says soft DK (ratebeer seemed a bit arsey about it too). Dark brown/black with short lived head. Aroma is coffee and vanilla. Taste is quite mild, sweet and slightly bitter. A bit fizzy for the style, good oily body though. Not bad.

Towey1989 (709) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2015
Keg at Brewdog Manchester. A black colour with a very thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, subtle smoke, some liquorice, maybe some raisin and soy sauce. Taste of roasted malts, coffee, soy sauce, molasses, cocoa, some vanilla, subtle alcohol, a little burnt toast and slight toffee. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, roasted bitterness with a nice toffee sweetness in the finish. Firstly it’s a little thin to be a great imperial stout but it’s perfectly balanced and hides the alcohol well with only a slight warming sensation. Good.
