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.

Ratman197 (13880) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2009
Bottle poured a clear dark brown nearly black with a lasting brown head. Aromas of milk chocolate, vanilla, light roastiness and light coffee. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of milk chocolate, vanilla, roastiness and a hint of esspresso with a smooth dry lingering milk chocolate finish. Very tasty dessert beer would go great with a great chocolate cream pie.

Bottle from Radiomgb, thanks! Almost black and opague. Roast, vanilla and chocolate in the aroma. Malty sweet flavor with vanilla, pear and chocolate. Some roastbitterness in the finish. Luscious and very drinkable. Cacao in the aftertaste. Only a bit too simple to get a 4+.
