From cask Pours dark brown to black with a small tan head. Aroma is dark roasted malt and distinct vanilla. Sweet, distinct vanilla and dark sweet malt beneath. Dark roasted. Lasting vanilla impression. Not balanced and overimpowering on the vanilla.

Ungstrup (29170) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2011
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.

oh6gdx (20253) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2009
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!

omhper (19236) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2012
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?

yngwie (13213) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2013
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
