Melker (238) - Varberg, - SEP 9, 2013
Almost black and almost no head, just a tiny 1 mm dark brown head when i poured it hard. Aroma of berries, milk chocolate, really dark coffee, tobacco and caramel. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, bitter coffee. Just a little bit sweet, ends somewhat dry and bitter. Sticky and thick texture.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2015 Thick black body, large sticky head. Sticky is the general word that applies here, with dark sugar, dough, chocolate, vanilla, cookie, brownie, sweet cream. Great amount of flavours, although sweetness sticks out. Dessert beer. No, it?s desserts by itself. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

12 oz bottle I got in a trade off of Facebook, big thanks to Mr. Antonio Castillo. The pour is dark and oily black with a finger of dark mocha head and no lace some great lacing. The aroma is something else. It smells like a boozy vanilla coffee shake. The roast is beautiful and the vanilla is a little reserved but the coffee is there, a great sweetness on the back end from the vanilla. I wish it smelled a little more vanilla-ish. There is a decent booze on the back end. The flavor is unbelievable. Lots of vanilla, tons of coffee, a beautiful roast, little bitterness from licorice. The booze isn’t detectable. The mouth feel is thick, chewy, with a soft velvety carbonation that is great. The aftertaste is lingeringly coffee and vanilla with a bitter roast. Damn good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is vanilla bomb, booze, coffee, creme brulee, nice. Appearance is black, brown head, great thick pour, looks great. Taste is vanilla, coffee, roasted malt, lactose, mellow for 13%. Mouthfeel is wonderful, great carbonation, thick, oily, viscous. Overall, it’s unbelievable.

Bottle 330ml. Pours jet black with medium beige head. Some lacing. Aroma is of lots of chocolate, vanilla, coffee. Taste is of vanilla, chocolate, coffee, sugar, alcohol. Palate: Full bodied. Soft carbonation. Sticky. Overall: Very nice. Somewhat heavy. Quite tasty. A tad boozy and sweet.

HammerTroll (792) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 21, 2015
Pitch black, small brown head. Lots of vanilla and cocoa, bit boozy. Taste is again vanilla and cocoa bomb, some cocoa bitterness and sweetness. Full body, thick and oily, flat carbonation. Marvelous.

tom10101 (3773) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle (330 ml) bought @ Craft Beer Cellar Waterbury. Split 2-ways with Minderbinder.

Appearance: Pitch black with a small white head, medium retention, some lacing and little alcohol legs.

Aroma: A ton of vanilla (really intense) and quite a lot of coffee along chocolate notes, light fruitiness and hints of alcohol.

Taste: Really sweet with loads of vanilla, a lot of coffee as well, light frutiness, chocolate, alcohol, hazelnuts, alcohol and caramel.

Palate: Full body. Moderate carbonation. Oily and rather thick mouthfeel. Lingering sweet finish with a bit of alcohol warmth.

Overall: It’s really tasty and it definitely lives up to the name and showcase the vanilla but it’s really sweet and rather cloying (it wasn’t easy to drink half the bottle). Flavorful, but a bit unbalanced. Good stuff!

McWorta (922) - LUXEMBOURG - JUN 20, 2015
Clear, chocolate brown-black with a tan head. Aromas of light smokey solid vanilla, milk chocolate, milk coffee and caramelised dates develop. Light lively, surprisingly light slick qnd full bodied. Roast malt, sweet vanilla coffee shake with light smokey astringency. Lasting finish. Excellently balanced!

Butelka, warka... gdzie oni date waznosci pisza? Ciemne, brazowo-czarne, zupelnie nieprzezroczyste, oleiste przy nalewaniu, piana wysoka, ladna, redukujaca sie nieco zostajac na szkle do korzuszka. Aromaty bardzo intensywne - kawa, wanilia, czekolada, alkohol (czasami likierowy, czasami niestety rozpuszczalnikowy). kakao, jakies suszone owoce w czekoladzie, moze sliwki moze wisnie... kolejnosc tego wszystkiego powyzej nieprzypadkowa. w smaku jest analogicznie i tez bardzo intensywnie. kazdy lyk troszke inaczej smakuje, to fajne, zazwyczaj albo kawa, albo czekolada albo wanilia najmocniej wyczuwalna, i tak co lyk sie to zmienia ;) Bardzo tez fajnie pozostaja w ustach posmaki, zmieniajac sie, ustepujac alkoholowej goryczce. wybrzmiewaja tez przez dlugie sekundy posmaki, zwlaszcza wanilia a na samym koncu czekolada i kawa - tak dlugich posmakow nie pamietam z innych piw. Na starcie bardziej kwaskowate, pozniej w slodka strone. Niskie wysycenie. Pelne, oleiste w ustach. Klasa piwo, jedyne wady to czasami gdzies sie blaajacy rozpuszczalnik i moze zbyt odczuwalny w smaku alkohol.

Does not get any better! Very full bodied, low carbonation, vanilla and coffee brought to amazing heights. Complex, continuingly challenging beer.
