Our first small-batch canned release of 2017 is hot off the press and looks an absolute picture thanks to the amazing custom can artwork from the incredible guys at The Red Dress. We wanted to produce something of true decadence, so have packed into the recipe everything that we could think of to raise the body and make a smooth, truly redolent deep stout.

The four key additions exaggerate the mouthfeel and work with the blend of malts, oats and wheat to leave you with a beer that is best enjoyed on those dark, early-spring evenings when the weather is yet to break and the cold still seeps in around the door jambs. The result? In a word, opulence. The aromas start with cocoa and vanilla but it is the flavour that really holds the key to our latest small-batch release. Chocolate milkshake, roasty espresso and mellow vanilla blend into one in a smooth, full-bodied beer that is rich, deep and rewarding.

Felt like a sweet coco and bad dark chocolate soup somehow. A rare not appreciated brewdog brew... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

God, fyldig og velsmagende stout. Dejlig fyldig øl. Sød - uden at være for sød. Fin aroma

0.33l can. This one has a more or less clear deeper brownish color ed looking body. Almost a little chocolate looking and on the top a medium sized quite lacing darker beige head. It smells roasted. Roasted and lots of sweet chocolate. Cognac sweetness for sure and I get lots of artificial vanilla. Not bad. It tastes quite sweet also. Artificial for sure. Like the roastiness, but it gets way too sweet. Earthy and almost a little woody. It has a mild oily texture in the mouth and it's below average on the carbonation. Not a personal favorite this, though I can understand that someone might find this tasty. 16.03.2018

Can, 10cl @ Øluniverset, Vejle. Pours deep opaque black with a small, creamy beige head. Aroma has licorice, light roasted, soft milky. Medium carbonation, fine.dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is very sweet, hazelnut, light roasted, vanilla. Fine, but too sweet for its own good.

sorif (26) - Athens, GREECE - FEB 24, 2018
This is an interesting beer by BrewDog. Dark brown in color, with a small creamy head. It has a potent roasted aroma, with caramel, coffee and chocolate notes, yet the body of the beer is medium. Tastes very sweet, caramely, coffeey, kinda bitter with a bit of chocolate. As for the aftertaste, there is definitely some vanilla there, in addition to the expected coffee, caramel, chocolate. Overall a little too sweet, but not bad at all.

DruncanVeasey (8663) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2018
Can, April 2017. Glossy, tan-necked pitch. Well roasted carob, black bread, milky coffee, semi dried black grape and vanilla pod nose. Slick and silky with a tobacco-stained, scorched toast waft subsumed beneath lovely dark shiny bitter cocoa fruit. Shrivelled black grape and Black Forest notes. Mature and elegant sipper.

dzurek (575) - Szczecin, POLAND - FEB 15, 2018
Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta, piana szybko zniknęła. Aromat i smak mocno czekoladowy i kawowy, potem pojawia się także wanilia, choć już nie tak intensywna. Piwo słodkie, ciało średnie, podobne do mniej procentowych milk stoutów, choć alkohol bardzo dobrze ukryty. Bez szału, ale spróbować można.

ERB92 (845) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2018
Aroma of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, soy sauce, licorice and hints of nuts, wood and leather. Black with a tan head. Medium + sweet and medium bitter. Full body with a averaga carbonation. Slightly dry and bitter finish. Overall a very enjoyable Sweet Stout. Quite sweet, but the roasted bitterness balances this brew really well.

rand (1920) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 12, 2018
Can 330 ml / MAC. Black beer with a nice tan head, compact and rather persistent. Aromas of chocolate-cocoa, vanilla coffee, roasted malt. The taste is soft and sweetened, roasted with coffee-cocoa, scented with vanilla, with the flexibility of lactose-oat, notes of burnt, pepper, sugar cane and earth. All in sweetness and depth. Too good for a tin can !

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2017 330 can @Beijing China 外观:黑色不透明酒身,大量深棕色小颗粒泡沫,表面绵密,持续一定时间,有好看的比利时花纹挂 via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lello4ever (1322) - ITALY - DEC 18, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2017 Una milk stout ottima, marrone scuro, schiuma sottile frizzantina. Al naso si avverte malto. Tostato, cioccolato al latte, mentre al palato dà il meglio di sé, dolce senza risultare stucchevole, tanta vaniglia, caramello, cioccolato al latte, caffè. Beverina con un corpo per niente pieno, vellutata.
