4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours pitch black with a very thin creamy mocha head. Aroma of roasted malts and coffee beans but the vanilla is also really pronounced, it almost overwhelms the rest. Taste is fairly sweet, but it’s dry and bitter in the finish. Full body, lively carbonation and rich creamy mouth feel. Overall a really exceptional 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

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.!
