Fin (8107) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, - JUL 8, 2013
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent June 2013 consumed at home in company of Casey & Traci 06.07.13 Pours black with dark brown head, looks good. The nose is a good combination of vanilla and coffee with a goodly dollop of cream and chocolate or milky, creamy chocolate to be more precise. Whilst I like this beer and whilst I like the vanilla, maybe the vanilla is deployed just a little too heavily here, nice but a little overkill. I think the strength is very well masked I really didnít believe it was that strong. Good beer, very good in fact, smooth, indulgent and really tasty, just not quite great. A8 A4 T7 P4 Ov15 3.8

Bottle at "Pulled-pork-tasting" at tderoeck's place. Thanks Tinus for bringing the bottle! Vanilla, chocolate, balanced much more than the Dessert. Roast. Nice!

Hopmaestro (362) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - APR 22, 2015
Aroma is vanilla and roasted malts with a small sting of alcohol. Taste is sweet with vanilla dominating, but also bitter chocolates and some coffee. Actually there may be a tad too much of the vanilla, but I donít care, cause itís fucken awesome. Superb even.

jake65 (2848) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 16, 2015
Bottle, Boise imperial stout tasting. Near black pour with a creamy brown head. Lots of chocolate and vanilla in the aroma, very inviting. Taste screams white chocolate mocha with vanilla. Sweet, but in the right proportion. Thick and creamy. Delicious.

Bottle 0.33l. Thick dark liquid with small head. Full body, light carbonation. Strong vanilla aroma and taste. Vanilla licqueur. Rich, creamy, oily. Could taste alcohol.

jahshuwuh (477) - USA - APR 11, 2015
Pitch black with dark tan finger of head. Smells like a chocolate vanilla shake, chocolate malt, vanilla icing. Taste is sweet vanilla cocoa, roasted malt and hops, bakers chocolate. Roasted hop lasts into the finish along with the vanilla and cocoa. Mouthfeel is thick as a milk shake, damn fine, viscous. Alcohol is only slightly detected in the finish but is drown out by the other big bold flavors, surprisingly smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fspirit (49) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 9, 2015
Malty and heavy vanilla on the nose. Pitch black, little brownish head. Taste is chocolate, vanilla and coffee with allot of bitternes. Pretty sweet, and you have some alcohol burn. I donít understand people calling this a candy beer, cause itís not too sweet in my opinion.

Kauge (563) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 8, 2015
Bottle from Koht. Black with a reddish hue. Thick, sticky, sweet, not exactly loaded with vanilla aroma or taste. Chocolaty. Not as much coffee as in Brunch Weasel I had yesterday, itís more mellow and sweet, and less intriguing. The +3% shows though, and I love how at first it seems very creamy and soft and civilized, but then in the throat the alcohol and bitterness give a nice burning sensation. Otherwise the alcohol is surprisingly well hidden. But I still prefer the Breakfast and Weasel versions.

Koskela (364) - Marysville, California, USA - APR 7, 2015
Choc with a hint of vanilla in this dark brown very thick pouring brew. Exactly like a choc vanilla shake. Not much carb. Very full bodied. With almost a nutty aftertaste. The label says it all. Very well done.
