Gravicask at NWAF 2013, half pint shared with Finn. Bubbly tan-coloured head. Near-black coloured body. Dark chocolate nose added by vanilla. Woody vanilla flavour mingled with chocolate leading to a malty dry bitter ending. Medium bodied and well made (Manchester, 23.01.2013).

At the NWAF Manchester 2012. Does a good job of delivering chocolate and vanilla, a match made in heaven. Nice smooth finish. Lovely. Had it since a few times and always enjoyed it.

Cask at cloisters. Initial rush of sweet vanilla and milk choc before a dry roast finish. Really good.

Finn (4321) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2014
NWAF 23 Jan 13. Svart. 0 skum. Sterk sjokoladearoma. Melkesjokolade. Smaken det samme. God - men lite som minner om øl.

imdownthepub (10517) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2014
Cask conditioned at Fleetwood Beer Fest ’14. Dark brown with cream head. Quite a heavy beer, roasted malts with a big vanilla whoosh, toffee, butterscotch notes. Takes a bit of drinking, fortunately there is a late bitterness for bite.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Duck & Drake Leeds 01/05/13. A black beer with a thick off-white head. Lovely vanilla in the nose with coffee notes. Same in the mouth. Smooth and on point. A very decent and tasty vanilla stout. Less chocolate than expected but a mighty fine beer.

Alecwallace (155) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2013
As stouty as stout gets, with a small quick clearing tan head. The aroma is milk chocolate and some roast malt. The flavour reminded me of a Penguin chocolate bar! Lovely and smooth

downender (6391) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2013
Cask-conditioned at the Merseyside beeriodical, the Seven Stars, Bristol February 2013. Black with a decent, off-white head. Big, plan chocolate notes, charred malts and a touch of vanilla sweetness, before a dryish finish. Good.

jackl (4698) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Cask @ The Euston Tap. The pour’s deep brown with a small, bubbly tan head. The aroma’s very sweet. Plenty of vanilla cream, some rich cocoa, hershey’s chocolate syrup. A ’prepare the epipen!’ nose. The taste is very sweet. Plenty of rich milk chocolate and vanilla. A touch of roasted nuts, earthy malts. Smooth body, soft carbonation. Overall, a bit too sweet and unbalanced for my taste.

Cask at the Cask, Pimlico - 16/03/12. Dark brown verging towards black with a small tan head. Roast malts and chocolate nose. Creamy chocolate taste with vanilla and a little coffee. Medium bodied, good feel.
