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.

Had this a number of times both on bottle and on tap. Tap way surpasses the bottles, and when served right this is one of the best stouts ive ever had.

341ml bottle with a big thanks to Glouglouburp for the hookup! Man, Ive been wanting to try this for so long its not even funny, so thrilled to hear its bottled now. Pours a dark brown that sits black in the glass, and a large foamy tan head that lingers for a long time and leaves a good coat of lace as it dissipates. Aroma is inviting, with creamy milk and dry bittersweet chocolate, cocoa powder and vanilla in harmony. Flavor is stellar, with a great fullness to it, and more creamy milk chocolate, some bittersweet chocolate, cocoa and a hint of vanilla. A drier finish but far from chalky. Wow, definitely not disappointed on this one, and it found a way to exceed my high expectations. Great stuff, thanks again Dany!

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - NOV 30, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2015 Densa e nera con sottile velo di pannosa schiuma beige chiaro. Al naso e al palato un delicato cocktail di cioccolato al latte, vaniglia, malto e zucchero caramellato con lievi sentori tostati. Corpo medio, struttura vellutata, effervescenza gentile; una stout equilibrata, setosa e non impegnativa.

Pitch black pour with tan head with little retention as expected. Nose is tons of chocolate with roasted malt, coffee, and a touch of vanilla. Taste falls of a bit with bitter chocolate and coffee the most prominent. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2013 Black with very small white head. Choc vanilla aroma. Vanilla comes out even more as it warms. Taste is bitter choc, very mild vanilla with bitter finish. Lingering bitterness. Overall, one of the great straight up stouts. Love it.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2005
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.

Blom (837) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2010
Black with a brown diminishing head. Coffee and cocoa aromas plus some dusty hops. It is very smooth and medium-bodied. Flavours of vanilla, caffe latte and cocoa bitterness. A grand experience.
