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.

Bouteille de 341ml au March des Brasseurs. Brune trs opaque, presque noire, avec un mince, mais trs mince, col de mousse mocha qui russit tout de mme laisser une fine dentelle sur le verre. Nez de chocolat, sucre dorge et vanille. Trs ronde en bouche, la langue ne dmentis pas le nez, cest chocolat noir, vanille/caramel, avec notes de caf et malt torrfi, le tout finissant sur une bonne amertume houblonne et des effluves dalcool qui viennent balancer le tout en fin de bouche.

Wow, really nice stout. Thick black pour with a khaki ring. Aroma is root beer, vanilla, oak, and bourbon. Taste brings more chocolate and roastiness. Well balanced and very creamy mouthfeel. Perfect dessert beer.

On tap at Prohibition Pig. Pour is deep brown, almost black with a small tan head and decent lacing. Big cocoa, vanilla beans, dark fruits, raisins, brown sugar, figs, lactose, and coffee in the aroma. Taste is dark chocolate, plums, raisins, sweet vanilla, dark fruits, brown sugar, toffee, and earthy hops. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Sweet, yet balanced. Really tasty.

RRistow12 (808) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2015
Tasted from bottle. Pours dark black with a beige head. Aroma is cocoa, vanilla and coffee. Medium to full bodied with cloying mouthfeel that ends a little dry and bitter. Flavors similar to nose but a little more vanilla on taste. Nice mix of cocoa and vanilla. Smooth excellent stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mrnoluv (343) - long beach, California, USA - AUG 22, 2015
I think this one is over-hyped, I taste basically no sweentess the malt is overpowered by the strong chocolate, coffee bean taste. Good, smooth, perfect ABV, but I cant say this up there with any of Founders stouts for example. This is a B-plus, A-minus stout, nowhere near the perfect rating it has.

fkoolen (1132) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 24, 2015
Bottle at home. Pitch black, creamy beige head. Big dark chocolate/cacao and vanilla tones, creamy malts; lightly bitter, quite complex. Lingering aftertaste. Immensely soft mouthfeel, low carbonation, big body (especially considering 6,5abv).

Ron (3855) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 7, 2016
Bottle. Black pour with large thick light brown head leaving lots of lacing behind. Aromas of cocoa, roasted barley, vanilla, chocolate and coffee. Full body, oily mouth-feel, medium bitterness on the finish. Slightly dry, moderate sweetness, medium carbonation. Huge vanilla finish, lingers for several minutes. A bit of the dry cocoa lingers also. Really well made, flavors work well together. Truly enjoyable.
