Tap at Barcade, 24th Street. Pours pitch black, nice creamy tan head. Aroma is lots of coffee, sweet roasted malt, plenty of vanilla, lactose, very sweet. Flavor is sweet vanilla, coffee, milk chocolate, I’d call this decently sweet. Excellent. How does Alesmith do this? hansvf (879) - - DEC 18, 2016

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2017 Tap at AleBrowar Gdynia. Black beer with small, durable brown head. Intense aroma, with mainly lots of milk coffee, espresso and vanilla at first, over time more milk chocolate emerges. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and light bitter, of chocolate, milk coffee, vanilla, cocoa, with roasty notes in the finish and gentle alcohol warming. Full body, oily, creamy, smooth texture and soft carbonation. World class, delightful dessert of a beer! Jashiu (933) - Gdañsk, POLAND - DEC 14, 2016

Aroma: Very strong vanilla over intense milk chocolate aroma, some coffee scents. When warmed the coffee becomes more intense and rich dark chocolate comes to front
Looks: Deep black with light brown thick short head
Taste: Moderately sweet, intensively vanilla, especially in the finish. A lot of chocolate and coffee tastes mix with malty toffee. Very rich and multilayered. The alcohol is pretty well hidden.
Feel: It feels full but not yet oily. Carbonation is soft and medium strength
Overall: A great dessert beer. Multilayered and complex. Very interesting to drink. Would happily drink it again. And again. And again...
Draught. Creamy lightbrown excellent fully lasting head. Black colour. Moderate malty and hoppy aroma. Strong coffee notes. Heavy bitter flavor. Long heavy bitter finish. Coffee too dominating. Creamy palate. VsXsV (4414) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2016
