3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at GBBF 2010. A dark brown beer with a red shine and no head. The aroma has notes of vanilla and roasted malt. The flavo ris sweet with ntoes of vanilla, malt, and caramel and just a hint of smoke, leading to a dry vanilla finish. A bit too much vanilla for my liking.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Cask@The White Horse, Parsons Green, London.Black colour, small beigeish head. Aroma is vanilla, roasted malts, liquorice, oak, caramel, fudge and lots more. I’m lost for words. Flavour is very close to the aroma in an extremely good balance. Lacking something I can’t pinpoint in the flavour. Really close to perfection! Orgasm of the senses!

Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Transparently black, small head. Aroma of only vanilla. Dryish with slender body and clean mouthfeel. Vanilla overpowers everything else. Some salty resiny bitterness. Why ruin a perfectly good beer like this?

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Stone 17th anniversary party. Pours a minimal sized beige head over a more or less black body. Vanilla, dark chocolate and some coffee in the aroma. There’s roasted malts on the palate, dark chocolate, cocoa and some coffee. And vanilla. A bit too much I think. Full body, very soft carbonation, quite low level too. Long vanilla finish with coffee and dark chocolate. Too much vanilla, else pretty nice. 130816
