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.

Soft dookie indeed. Appearance is a fluffy, thick, tan head that slowly settles to a brown cover, lots of lace, and an opaque brown black color. Aroma is roast, vanilla, black patent malt, cocoa, coffee, old tree bark. Flavorís like nose, has carbonic tang against the bittersweet and vanilla up front and slowly tapers to the bittersweet flavors and some alcohol warmth at the end. Soft round body with just enough carbonation to balance. A masterpiece. Gimme some dookie!

Bottle. The pour is dark with a full dark brown head. The aroma is malt, vanilla, and molasses. The taste is thick and creamy. A very good flavorful stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Big aroma of vanilla, cocoa, brown sugar, some booze and a strange metallic scent. Great looking thick black beer with a brown head of foam that leaves tons of lacing. Tastes more roasty than I would have imagined, the sweetness balances this out. Hints of brown sugar with a booze burn. Palate is average, judging by its looks I thought it would have been thicker. Pretty good, I will be aging a few bottles of this.

tectactoe (2882) - Michigan, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Bottle: Labeled as "Soft DK". Super thick & viscous black pour. Oily, black, & topped with a velvety, deep-tan head. Aroma of moderate chocolate, cookie dough, faint roast, mild milky sweetness, vanilla, perhaps some brown sugar. Flavor has lots of brown sugar, bakerís chocolate, roasted malt, & even a bit of coffee. Lighter undertones of vanilla, anise, & a very moderate fudge element. Mouth feel is a bit thinner than the thick looking pour would indicate. Overall, a pretty nice imperial stout.

Jens_thogersen (7) - - MAR 21, 2015 does not count
Pours nice with a tight beige head that sticks for a very long time. Nose is of coca cola and something vegetal, a bit odd. Mouthfeel is very thick. In contrast to the head it is very low carbonated. What lacks on the nose delivers on the palate. Lots of dark fruits, obvious salmiak. Very balanced. Very enjoyable.

February 1, 2015. Bottle at home, as Soft DK, best before 2015.
Black with dense brown head. Aroma is cocoa, vanilla along with licorice and soy. Taste is light to medium sweet with roasted bitter chocolate notes, hints of salty licorice and soy. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation, smooth mouthfeel.
