DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Bottle from Davis Beer Shoppe. Just from the pour I knew this beer was going to be amazing. Just like the name says the vanilla flavor was there. It's a bit strange for something this dark to taste like vanilla. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Mikkeller Tokyo. Deep brown with a nice latte colored head. Huge vanilla bean bomb with roasted malt, espresso and milk chocolate on the nose. Taste is quite similar with cacao and espresso complementing the vanilla nicely. This is a dessert beer through and through and a great one. The oatmeal leaves a wonderful creamy mouthfeel and coats the palate. Finishes smooth and rich with good sweetness.

Lambister (340) - FINLAND - SEP 4, 2015
Bottle from Uba & Humal, Tallinn. Pitch black with slowly diminishing brown head. Loads of vanilla and milk chocolate on the nose. Balanced body with sweet tasty body. Simply superb in all aspects.

shoulderbroken (2850) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 4, 2015
Tap at Mikkeller Tokyo. Nice. Taste has the vanilla creaminess with a bit of a boot to it. Booze is there, but feels pretty easy going. Rich and chocolatey, bit of caramel, light fruitiness. Maybe a hint of spice but maybe that’s just the alcohol. Finish is long and lingering. Aroma is mostly sweetness, vanilla and chocolate, light roast there too.

ChtiBreizh (222) - Rennes, FRANCE - AUG 30, 2015
Black with a thin tan head. Lots of vanilla and licorice. Medium sweet, wineous, boozy and light bitter finish. Not that complex, a little too wineous and boozy for my taste.

Calisky (1760) - ALSACE, FRANCE - AUG 26, 2015
Courtesy of Jaghana. Nez fort de toffee, moka, liqueur de café. Gout de praliné cremeux a la liqueur de café, sucre cuit, alcool avec note boisée. On a l’impression de manger un petit dessert pluot que boire une bière. Faut aimer, mais c’est vraiment puissant, du Mikkeller a fond!

jaghana (4734) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - AUG 25, 2015
Bottle 33cl, a dark beer with medium brown head. Nose is on dark chocolate with strange dusty touch. Aroma is on roasted malt, smooth, very sweet floral notes that gives a medicinal touch, vanilla. What to say, it’s not a bad beer but I did not get anything really exiting, very sweet, alcohol well hidden.

Savagesteeler (77) - Warszaw, POLAND - AUG 23, 2015
Aromat cudownie kawowo palony, lekko słodko rumowy, w tle wanilia. Kolor głęboko czarny, piękna piana rubinowo brązowy. W smaku uderza moc, gorączka kawowa, czekolada, połączona z świetna kawa, trochę kwaskowatosci, która podkreśla całość. Piwo niezwykle pijalne, tak właśnie powinien smakować oatmeal z kawą. Świetnie ułożony.

kevinator (1440) - The Colony, Texas, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Strong aroma of vanilla, chocolate and toasted malt. Very dark and viscous. Thin head. Heavy, creamy and smooth. This is a dessert beer. Vanilla and sweet with dark chocolate and roasted coffee with a nice bitter finish.

Bottle. Pours a black body with a beige head. Low carbonation. Explodes with heavy notes of roasted malt and vanilla, with notes of coffee and dark chocolate on the side.
