Bottle from OTM. The appearance is a deep creamy oozy black with a small deep brown head. The nose is flowing with whole vanilla beans and vanilla extract with some marshmallow touches. The flavors are rich with vanilla that really powers the profile Roasty malts fill in the edges at the beginning and eventually rounds out the beer. A nice spice from the vanilla bean. Not enough coffee in front for my preference or maybe the roast is on the milder side. Don’t get me wrong it is there. A nice spicy after taste with a good amount of drying. Very tasty beer.

Bottle. Complex dark malt aroma with toasted hazelnuts, vanilla, mocha, and a touch of red fruit. Opaque black under a lasting, tan sheet and collar of fine bead. Sweet, slightly smoky flavor of vanilla, toasted hazelnuts, and mocha. Faint red fruit accents and medium dark malt bitterness. Full body, moderate carbonation, smooth. Slightly acidic.

330 ml bottle shared with asheft. Deep brown-black, thin mocha head. A little smoky, black strap molasses, licorice, a bit of vanilla, big and dark, boozy, a little nutty, bigger vanilla in flavor, a bit of coffee (hard to find), more vanilla as it warms, sweet, somewhat bitter, full bodied, low carbonation, long, long rich finish. Wow.

What a nice brew! The vanilla is there for sure, but the nice chocolate malty dryness makes it almost insane. The aftertaste is one if the best I ever had

Opaque black with great, long lasting head. Aroma of vanilla is absolutely dominating, but there are woody and sweet cocoa smell. Almost no alcohol aroma! O damn, the mouthfeel is sensational! It is so velvety. In taste vanilla plays major role, but in the second taste freshly grounded coffee takes its place. Very sweet, full bodied and balanced. Alcohol is noticeable mostly by its bitter. Very soft, mellow and low carbonated. Perfect coffee-vanilla stout.

Mmm doftar vanilj och kaffe. Alldeles kolsvart med ljusbrun skumkrona. Kaffesmaken tar överhanden i munnen men vanilj finns med där bakom. Mer vanilj som ligger kvar i munnen efter. En perfekt öl att dricka på ölets dag.!

330ml shared with junes and Chris g. Pours black, small head diminishing fast. Fine lacing. Aroma is vanilla, coffee and a bit smoky. Taste is rich and with power. Medium carbonation, medium to full body. Taste of vanilla and coffee, sweet caramel. This is like a meal, this could be lunch. I will try this again...

Bottle shared with JD and Olesen. Aroma of significant vanilla and ice coffee. Taste of vanilla in the beginning with a very nice finish of espresso. Vanilla is dominating all through the experience.
