anstei (3698) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 8, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2019 Bottle. Pours black. Aroma is vanilla, bourbon, caramel, diabetes, marzipan. Body is heavy and strong, more vanilla and diabetes, but working well. Lively carbonation, powerful, uncompromising but smooth. Very good.

Nische (3340) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2018
SBWF 2018. Black with brown head. Oaky barrel, vanilla beans, body lotion, earthy with wet oak and loads of vanilla sweetness. Different than the bunch, but still very much the same.

Scopey (19165) - Oldmeldrum, SCOTLAND - AUG 4, 2018
Bottle thanks to Steve. It pours jet black with a tan head. The aroma is heavy sweet, sticky, oily, big vanilla vibes, toasted coconut, oily and fruit cake. The taste is sweet, sticky, oily, earthy, slick, charred wood, tar, plenty of vanilla, toasted coconut, spice, warming alcohol, damp wood and tannin with a drying finish. Full body and fine carbonation. Not a huge amount of depth. Not bad.

DocLock (11546) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2018

3.9
Ljus (631) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2018
Vintage 2017
Apparence : Noire, léger col brun, faible rétention, anneau, faible carbonatation.
Nez : Vanille, chocolat, malt grillé, touche épicée.
Goût : Entrée sur la vanille et le chocolat sucrés, du malt grillé, finale sur une vanille et torréfaction laissant une sensation légèrement âcre. Aspect qui s'atténue lorsque la bière se réchauffe.
Sensation : Corps moyen-plus, quelque peu âcre en finale, longue finale.
Bref : Je comprends maintenant pourquoi certains me disaient que la vanille ressortait parfois sous forme âcre/amère dans certaines Stouts. N'ayant expérimenté que sous sa forme sucrée, je fus surpris. Cette bière présente ses deux caractéristiques : vanille sucrée en entrée et vanille âcre en finale. À apprécier plus chambrée que froide.
