Brewed using Roast Barley and Maris Otter Pale Malt which give a huge amount of rich body to the beer and a generous amount of English North down hops to create a bitter edge, the sweetness comes from the addition of Chocolate and Madagascan Vanilla

Cask at The Waterhouse JDW, Manchester. Deep brown with thin tan head. Chocolate and vanilla very strong in aroma and taste. Some roasted malt and subtle fruit. Too sweet and one dimensional.

ManVsBeer (7840) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2016
Cask @ Three Pigeons, Halifax. Extremely dark, but not quite black, with a thick, creamy, slightly off-white head. It does what it says on the tin - it’s both chocolate and vanilla in aroma and taste, with the former dominant in its nose. It is thinner in its texture than you’d expect it to be though.

Towey1989 (1517) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2016
Bottle from Titanic Brewery. Pours a deep brown colour with a medium beige head. Aroma of chocolate, some vanilla, slight oats and subtle roasted malts. Taste of chocolate, some roasted malts, slight vanilla, subtle oats and a little earth. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, roasted, chocolate bitterness in the finish. Superb aroma of chocolate and vanilla, however the taste is a little dryer, some roastiness, subtle earth but it’s still a tasty stout. Amazing on cask.

the aroma is caramel and chocolate with hints of vanilla, robust and brown sugar... the taste is chocolate and caramel with notes of roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, toffee and some spices... sweet and bitter aftertaste...

Direct from the barrel. The vanilla and chocolate is fragrantly evident. Pours expresso black with bubbly head but no lace. A rich mouthful with the vanilla accenting the sweetness of the roasted malt. The chocolate lurks. There is a bitterness left on the palate but this is exactly what it says - chocolate & vanilla. A change rather than a habit. I suspect it could do wonders on draft at a care home that needed to cure overcrowding. A kindness.

Smooth, sweet, tasty. My first ’love at first sip’ brew. Definite chocolate and vanilla aroma and taste. Not easy to find on tap or in stores, however.
