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

markextrae (887) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle at home 13%. Poured a thick pitch Black colour with a small mocha head. Big aroma of vanilla, fudge, sweet belgian chocolate, caramel, milk chocolate, lactose, bitter roasted notes, ash aftertaste. Interesting beer. But I don’t like the bitterness in this beer combined with the vanilla

TimE (3106) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 22, 2014
Dark brown color. Tons of vanilla, thick sweet nose with dark chocolate. The mouth is thick, sweet and lots of dark chocolate and vanilla. Soo smooth and balanced. Lingering vanilla and chocolate finish. Very well executed.

toxichop (329) - South Gate, California, USA - JUL 19, 2014
P: Completely black with a dark brown/reddish head that doesnt last long. S: Bitter coffee, cacao, roasted malts, and some lacto. T: Bitter coffee hits you first, followed by some vanilla that starts coating the tongue, dark roasted malt, charred wood and dark chocolate. M: Thick with medium carbonation and this is somewhat bitter. O: Nice beer but the coffee bitterness was a bit overwhelming.

On draught at Fermentoren, 33cl. Subtle vanilla, creamy, dark. Pretty OK stout.

33cl bottle shared in a De Dolle glass. Pours a thick black colour with a rather disappointing beige head which last all of a few seconds. Aroma is malt, coffee and sweetness. Taste is extremely (but not overly) sweet. Mouth feel is perfect for an imperial stout and the bitterness is hardly evident. No discernible taste of vanilla and the coffee is not overly pronounced but is certainly in the background. Less complex than other Imperial stouts I have tried but extremely flavoursome and close to being perfect. One of the best.

Dry and lacking in the texture that I anticipated from a vanilla stout. Probably due to the ABV, but I believe this could have been altered by cutting the edge of the ABV. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Bottle. A finger-thick light tan head forms over a black body. Lots of coffee on the nose, with some vanilla and roasted malts. Coffee and some cloves. Alcohol. The flavor has coffee, vanilla, roasted malts and alcohol. Licorice too. Full body and a pleasant carbonation, rather sweet. Brown sugar, roasted malts, caramel, toffee notes and coffee. Lasting finish. Overall, pretty lovely, although demanding. Lots of nice aromas and flavors, and the sweetness and fruityness is really fine. 140717

Bottle 330ml @ geokkjer
Pours pitch black with a tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, caramel, alcohol, vanilla and coffee. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter with a long roasted, chocolate, vanilla and alcohol finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

oliodnb (252) - ITALY - JUL 15, 2014
33cl bottle. Pours black with a thick fluffy beige head. Smell is sweet with some chocolate, alcohol and less vanilla than expected. Taste starts with some milky sweetness with lots of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. Strong ground coffee bitterness and some burnt note, also some hops as in the Beer Geek Breakfast. Again less vanilla than what I was thinking. Can definitely feel the alcohol but wouldn’t have guessed the 13%. Thick, oily mouthfeel, full bodied. Excellent again.
