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.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2007 Rebu sur place en fut (20 oz). Brune noircie, bon collet beige avec une grosse dentelle. Arome de malte très chocolaté, juste assé sucré et très doux et cochon. Goût de malte rôti et très chocolaté, avec une petite douceur de vanille. Divine!

Pours a opaque witha nitro creamy head. Aroma is sweet milk chocolate all the way. The body is med-heavy, though this brewery’s beers are consistently big bodied no matter the style. The flavors are both sweet, choclatey, with some dried fruits, raisins, figs. The finish is only lightly bitter, just perfect to balance out the sweet malts and cocoa.

Pitch black stout with a creamy thick moka head. Light cocoa in aroma, with light vanilla notes, and some coffeee beans. Smooooth bitter chocolate with vanilla lingering in mouth. Rich and complex, and pleasing. One word here: Silky! A very classy stout! Enjoyed with M_Heine and GonzoBeer, on Dec. 17th, 2005 (YeHaa).

draught. the pour is a lush pitch black with a long-lasting, thick, creamy, mocha head. well I have to say that the aroma isn’t entirely complex but it does have it’s moments - creamy roast malt with faint espresso and chocolate. but upon first sip it really opens up! wow, that is some effin’ body - it couldn’t possibly be smoother. the vanilla is so rich and flavourful...I can’t remember ever having a stout brewed with vanilla and it certainly wasn’t as smooth and balanced as this. in the background you have soft milk chocolate blending beautifully. the finish has a delicate chocolate bitterness with a faint roastiness. at this point I had been drinking for eight minutes and there was still a significantly sized head. the great thing about this, like others have mentioned, is that it’s only 5% so you could easily down a few of these. truly an awesome beer.

Robe noire surmontée d’une mousse épaisse poussée à l’azote. Arômes très forts de vanille. Saveurs de malt, de vanille, de café et de chocolat. Houblon de soutien.

tap at the brewpub, 8/9 with goldorak, smells of sweet vanilla, milk chocolate, and lots of roast. the pour was jet black with a creamy nitrous head. i was expecting more pronounced cream and cocoa flavors. dont get me wrong, they were there, but they were a bit muted behind just the plain roasted malt flavor. body was also a little thin, especially considering this was on nitro. it didnt coat the inside of my mouth the way some other stouts do, but it did leave a very sweet chocolate taste behind. i enjoyed this beer alot, enough to have another glas before i left, but imo, it doesnt come close to Peche Mortel, and i actually like the Grande Noirceur more in terms of body and mouthfeel.

Hazy dark brown color, with a tan-colored creamy head, with cacao, chocolate, vanilla nose, roasted malt aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with rich chocolate ice cream flavor, sweet chocolate pralines, hint of vanilla, cacao powder, roasted coffee beans, leading to roasted bitter finish.

Cletus (6351) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 16, 2005
Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells of caramel and raisins with some mild choloclatey notes. Tastes of raisins, coffee, chocolate, rasberries and allspice with a sweet warming finish.

[on tap] This beer is black with a white, Guinnessy head that comes from nitrogen--looks very nice. Aroma is creamy cream with some vanilla, leading into dark malt notes: chocolate and bubblegum (yeah, I sometimes get that out of dark malts). Flavour is very impressive (more so than the aroma): Begins with vanilla with some nutmeg and bourbon notes leading into chocolate and finally some malt bitterness. Dry and clean with little indication that hops were included in this beer. Light body and clean; delicate.
