COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Black ale with aromas and flavours of vanilla, dark chocolate, bourbon and roasted malt. The vanilla and cocoa marry nicely, without out-competing each other, to produce a surprisingly well balanced beer. This beer is mildly hoppy, but the cocoa introduces a touch of bitterness. Its colour may be intimidating, but it is a very smooth beer within reach of most beer drinkers. This highly appreciated dessert beer is brewed with organic fair-trade cocoa and first rate vanilla beans.

The star of the evening. Very dark, only the slightest hint of light peeks through. A thick, creamy unending pancake of foam topping. Vanilla/chocolate malt aroma with a hint of rum nearly overpowers in its lusciousness. Chocolaty-smooth on the tongue, delicious alcoholic vanilla carries through to the assertive ending, with bits of raisins to enjoy the ride. Could be a little stronger flavored at the beginning, but that is a quibble; this is a wonderful experience and assures me that DDC can give Kalamazoo a run for the money as stout-king.

Creamy beige head, black. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, coffee. Flavour is heavy on the vanilla but not cloying as I had feared. Very smooth and big. Quite a cool beer. Draught.

Creamy tan head topping black body. Aroma is perfumy/flowery, chocolate and vanilla. Taste is chocolate, vanilla, milkshakish (though not nearly as sweet), light coffee. Smooth and creamy full body. This beer is amazing, demonstrating the amazing powers a creative brewer possesses.

As promised cocoa and vanilla are apparent to the nose. Beautiful dark brown opaque colour with a finger of dense head that lasts throughout. Flavour delivers the goods as advertised by the aroma. Wonderful thick, rich body. A true pleasure to drink. On tap.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2004 Dark like a moonless night. A rich nose of vanilla extract interlaced with white belgian chocolate. Warming and creamy taste, the texture is so nice that you don't want to swallow. Tastebuds detect cacao and an eternal restrained bitterness. Rich and generous just like I want it.

Strong chocolate aroma and taste, with a little too. I only had a little glas of it at The mondial and I took it as my last beer and I was a little (well ... a lot) drunk.
The strong taste had something to wake me up. A Creamy vanilla flavour them come and make it disappear down your throat.
I wasn't in perfect tasting condition when I took it. I will have to get another one some day.

Dark but creamy brown body. Creamy head that just won't go away. Aroma of powdery cacao, vanilla beans. It tasted almost as good as some dark chocolate and vanilla truffles my wife made a while ago but with a small hint of bitterness in the finish, just enough to balance the sweetness. I'll definitely have to try a full glass of it also. Pretty damn good!

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2006 (Draught) Creamy brown head and opaque body. Chocolate, vanilla and marshmallow aroma. A chocolate milkshake with expensive vanilla ice cream and thick 35% MF whipping cream. Finishes with a vanilla flavour so smooth that you slide right out of your clothes onto the naked marble floor. My ’Best of Show’ for Le 10e Mondial de la Biere in Montreal. Absolutely to die for...

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2016 Vanilla sheets cover and soothe as cocoa powder pillows hypnotize with their indefatigable perfume... Roasted bedposts create a warm atmosphere as a sensual milk linen serves as body icing... Another very unique dessert, surely a good friend of Péché Mortel...
