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.

Very complex aroma, starting off with vanilla, bringing the bitterness of the coffee in as an after taste.

Steven_B (98) - East Kilbride, SCOTLAND - MAY 7, 2016
Pours black with a big frothy head. Aroma is packed with coffee and vanilla. Flavour is sweet with lots of coffee. There’s some roasted malts and a hint of chocolate in there too. A big stout with a massive flavour. Outstanding!

Bottle.Expected a lot from this one and I wasn’t disappointed. Black and poured with a big head. Lovely vanilla flavours with coffee in background. Smooth and creamy flavour and actually exceeded expectations. My strongest for some time.

freretoc (1506) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 27, 2016
Bue en bouteille de 33cl à la brasserie, Couleur noire, pas de mousse et très peu d’effervescence. Nez sur le café et la vanille. En bouche attaque très ronde, puis continuité sur le café, le chocolat, le cappucino et fin de bouche énorme sur la vanille.

mecafilo (182) - Perugia, ITALY - APR 23, 2016
Bottle @ home. Pours with a very dark brown colour, medium lasting (wow! It’s 13% ABV!) tan head. Aroma is stouty, with very rich notes of chocolate and coffee and distinct notes of vanilla; some fruit in the background; if you like chocolaty stouts, this one is definitely for you. Taste is medium to heavy sweet, medium bitter; overwhelmingly rich and "decadent", as a Brewdoghead would say. Medium to heavy body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. A quintessential Craft Beer Revolution beer: not elegant, not balanced, but I can’t say I didn’t love it!

Bottle. Pitch black pour, small tan head. Clear notes of both vanilla and coffee in the nose, nice. Very round taste, vanilla, coffee and some malts. Full body, soft carbonation.

Renobob (1545) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 7, 2016
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Couleur dark, belle mousse beige. Nez explosif en aromes, café, moka, alcool. Palais onctueux, grosse corpulence, explosion d’aromes également. Richesse des textures. Finale incroyablement longue.
