English: This stout looks like soft dookie and some will say it smells and tastes like it too. If you like a thick, creamy and utterly vanillalicious stout youll like this one. If you dont, get yourself something else instead.

This Imperial Stout was a real joy to drink. Lots of chocolate and vanilla notes with a soft coffee-cream background. Wonderfully delicious.

stoutnick (839) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 8, 2013
Dark black with off white head. Aroma is vanilla roast. Taste is syrupy vanilla with a bitter finish. As it warms it becomes like dough - nice and chewy. Palate is bitter. Overall, lovely, almost sessional imperial stout. Not as complex or brilliant as even more jesus, but still a great taster.

hawthorne00 (3659) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2013
Bottle, 12C. Black with an inch of light tan head that fails to paint the bowl. Aroma of chocolate and vanilla, some light coffee. Velvety mouthfeel, almost nitro-like. Very sweet with chocolate, vanilla fudge (heh) astringent coffee mingling with alcohol and bitterness. If the vanilla has any wild overtones theyre lost in the sweetness. I dont get it - what do you get for the 10% except oblivion? A curious mixture of the bland and the crass.

Rangi (670) - NEW ZEALAND - MAR 1, 2013
This was good. Pitch black creamy head. Huge aroma of mocha and dark chocolate thelat continues through into the flavour. Taste is creamy and tasty. Syrupy almost to sweet toward the end but not quiet.

Dashimus (230) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2013
Bottle at Brewdog Shoreditch. Pours black with a thick beige head that leaves good lacing but fades fast. Aroma is vanilla, hot chocolate, cocoa, fresh cream and malt. Taste is predominately vanilla, cream and chocolate in a lesser way. Full bodied, creamy and very smooth. Delightful.

ComradeK (1165) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a small beige head, which lasts well and leaves very good lacing. Strong roasted malt dominates the aroma, with potent espresso and dusty cocoa backing it up. Quite strong bitter herbal hops up front lead into a roasty malt backbone, with espresso coffee and bitter dark chocolate notes prominent. Hazelnut and woody notes come through towards the finish, which leaves a lingering blend of dark chocolate and woody flavours as an aftertaste. This beer is not as complex as some imperial stouts, but its roasted malt flavours give it a firm backbone and a lovely dark, bitter feel. A nice one indeed.

flip_soeperman (880) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2013
Very black with thick brown head. Slightly sweet with decent bitterness. Aroma of red fruit, coffee and vanilla. Body is medium and less than expected. Not bad, but not very full. Furthermore very good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500ml bottle [Thanx David for sharing]. Pitch black colour with small tan head. Dark chocolate aroma. Taste is pure liquid dark chocolate, slightly spicy background with a touch of green onions. Smooth. Really good.

Super smooth and silky stout with a hell of a vanilla bean and cocoa flavour. The pour is a viscous black with a gorgeous creamy beige head. The nose is sublime with a beautiful roasted malt, smooth vanilla and a dusting of cocoa. The flavour has a major roasted malt, more vanilla and a hint of licorice amongst big roasted malts and chocolate. Supremely smooth and silky palate. Just exceptional.
