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

axl (530) - Lund, SWEDEN - AUG 22, 2016
330ml bottle. Pitch black with minimal non-lasting dark brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, cocoa, vanilla, molasses and light milky coffee. Taste is very sweet with plenty of vanilla and chocolate up front followed by sweet milky coffee and sweet molasses and ending in increasingly bitter roasted malts. Filling, kind of chewy mouthfeel, minimal carbonation and sweet, on the verge of overly so, vanilla aftertaste with a bitter roasted tone in the background.

bastarda (413) - Freiburg, GERMANY - AUG 22, 2016
@ Riga Craft Beer Fest on tap; superrich in aroma and taste and mouthfeel, no abv-fumes, vanilla, dark chocolate truffle, Eiskaffee, hints of ham/honey smoke, fizzy on the tongue, then creamy, or vice versa, more chocolate, vanilla and sweet coffee truffle in taste. Delicious, although not as good as the beergeek breakfast.

Turtles (1880) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 22, 2016
330ml bottle from Systembolaget. Pitch black with a small, short lasting, dark head, weak lacing. Sweet aroma of vanilla, molasses and dark chocolates. Sweet and gooey mouthfeel, mild carbonated. The taste is dominated by harsh vanilla extract also oats, milk chocolates, dark chocolates and black coffee. Too sweet.

knasputte78 (542) - SWEDEN - AUG 21, 2016
Svart med ett mörkt skum. Vanilj och rostade toner med torkad frukt. Bra men blir lite kvalmig av vaniljen ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

WhatDaddy (64) - Volos, GREECE - AUG 18, 2016
0,33lt bottle @ Valentin - Curious Bierkneipe, Volos Greece Aroma of sweet vanilla, you won’t get the ABV thou. Taste isn’t that much vanilla, more like caramel fudge with coffee -that’s tasty of course!- still you won’t get the 13%ABV, very nice. After a little while, you’ll get warmer of course... medium to full body, black color a bit to dark malt-caramel. Very nice imperial sweet stout.

eXORRO (130) - POLAND - AUG 17, 2016
Black with small beige head. Aroma full of licorice, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, raisins, alcohol. Taste is full of licorice, chocolate with alcoholic finish. Didn’t notice vanilla in taste. Full body, low carbonation. Very smoothy, creamy. Semi dry. Absolutely fantastic beer.

SvanteL (256) - SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2016
Nästan svart med litet mörkbrunt skum (ett av de mörkaste skum jag sett) som försvinner snabbt. Massor av vanilj i doften plus kaffe och mörk choklad och nötter. Stor rund smak med riktigt mörk choklad, kaffe och vanilj. Otroligt rund och fyllig munkänsla, tjock och oljig, ger rejäla bruna gardiner. En fantastisk stout, komplex och välbalanserad.

thorongil2 (2249) - , Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2016
(bottle) clear, bright, very dark brown colour with a small brown head; aroma of chocolate, smoked fruit, chocolate liqueur; rich, intense, balanced flavour with a long, medium bitter finish; creamy palate; well hidden alcohol, wonderful

deanso (8626) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2016
33cl bottle courtesy of and shared with Kermis. Thin ring tan head. Clear black pour. Lots of coffee, no vanilla and too much licorice. Still pretty good.

Pedro_Pinho (154) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2016 Oily black with no head. Aroma is vanilla with hints of coffee. Rather sweet taste with even more vanilla than the aroma. Not the best beer geek I had, but still good. Not worthy its price though.
