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.

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, - FEB 22, 2013
Tap. Pours opaque black cola brown with good light tan head and lace. Average hop aromas, malt overshadowed by a big vanilla bean scent, come oaky, choc, coffee, roasty burnt toffee notes are there. Earthen, yeast aromas are there. Body a touch thinner than expected, the roasty notes so acrid, gives the illusion of thinning. Also yeast character prominent. the vanilla continuing through over the top of the malt backbone. A touch boozy also, finishes moderately bitter, acrid, light-moderately sweet. The acrid roastiness and sweetness lingering on.

jamestulloch (3366) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 20, 2016
Bottle from Cork & Cask. Black body with a thin beige head. Faint lacing. Aroma of shoe polish, liquorice and Nutella. Flavour of chocolate, espresso and salted caramel. Thin body with a smooth texture. Light fizz. Thinner and sharper than I was expecting, but itís very drinkable for the strength.

Maris (1365) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 12, 2016
From a 330ml bottle on 12/8/2016 (bottle labeled Soft DK). Pours close to black with a small dark tan head. Has a relatively light aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and a bit of soy. The flavour is primarily sweet chocolate, some vanilla, a little warming spice and a moderate roasty bitterness. Has a relatively creamy texture and moderate carbonation. More than decent, but Evil Twin make some much better beers.

rondphoto (3964) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 3, 2016
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of malt dark fruit, and vanilla. Opaque black / brown color, brown head that stays awhile, hanging strands of lace. Taste is creamy chocolaty roasted malt that glides through light carbonation, adding light vanilla, then to bittering that brings the chocolate malt back into balance. Some alcohol is noticeable at the very end. Big, too heavy for me too enjoy, but, still balanced and well done.

Kavu (4020) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 3, 2016
0,33l bottle as Soft DK shared with wiosna @ Punavuoren Ahven. Pours very dark brown with a low tan head. Aroma is sweet roasted malts with dark fruits and perhaps some vanilla. Flavor is sweet roasted malts, ash, dark fruits, vanilla, alcohol and hops. Too thin body. Good nevertheless.

Arayaga2 (2114) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 28, 2016
Soy sauce colored with a marshmallowy brown head. Aroma is sweet, with brown sugar, and taste is the same. Thereís cocoa, brown sugar, and it tastes somewhat underattenuated, even for an Istout. Having said that, itís rich like a hot chocolate, but finishes with some mineral notes. $4/12oz

emusche (190) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 8, 2016
Pours black with sticky brown head. Aromas of vanilla, anise and molasses dominate; nose also has hints of bourbon, booze, a little roast, and raisins. Taste is vanilla bean, treacle, black licorice; boozy but not overwhelming. Mouthfeel is velvety AF and super-smooth. Delicious.

Kosmokrator (846) - ITALY - JUL 7, 2016
Nera, densa, schiuma marroncina. Salamoia di olive, cioccolato, caramello; gusto dolciastro, cacao, malto, un pizzico di caramello, caffettosa sul finale. Vellutata, asciutta, concisa, non eccessivamente dolce. Ricorda una stout classica; bilanciata ma non il mio genere.
