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.

CanIHave4Beers (4047) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Draught at The Beer Hall... Waterloo, IA.

The aroma is smoky and ashy with lots of chocolate. The kicker is the nice almond character that shows up as it warms.

The flavor is very roasty, lightly sweet, and overwhelmingly chocolaty. The beer is nicely bitter all around with a good hop character. Its extreme in almost all its elements, yet somehow balanced. This is certainly not the overly sweet imperial stout I expected it to be.

The beer is big on the palate and aided in mouthfeel by its low carbonation.

Albe (56) - ITALY - AUG 25, 2012
Black colour and fair light brown head, mostly diminishing. The aroma is very sweet, delivers mostly milk chocolate, then some mild coffee, cookie and dark malts. In the mouth is more balanced, again intense milk chocolate and coffee, with a light bitter/sweet flavor in the end. Creamy texture leaves a long flavor duration. Maybe for summer its a bit too warming.

essexcalf (172) - Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2012
Bottle from Bacchanalia, Cambridge. Rather lively, had to open carefully. Opaque, almost black, pours big, thick, Creamy brown head with fine bubbles that persists well. Med-high carbonation. Aroma is thick, with rich Dark chocolate & cocoa, vanilla, caramel, some licorice, some rich alcohol (dark, woody rum) and bits of roast & coffee - A tribute to sweet, dark malts. Taste - Med sweetness, milky texture, loads of rich, dark chocolate, soft vanilla (like chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream), quite a bit of soy & salty licorice and some pineyness. Also a surprising bit of tanginess present throughout; noticeable hops (some fruity hop aroma/tastes mixed in) and some slight roasty, ashiness. Chocolate sauce sweetness aftertaste on the front of the tongue and some drier, ashy roast notes and spiciness left too, but sweetness dominates. Body is medium heavy, milky, smooth/soft. Very well done; vanilla is at a good level, not too overbearing, and not too sweet either. Rich, smooth, drinkable and the alcohol is brilliantly hidden. Lovely.

MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 10, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2012 tap at maxs. heavy sepia, rich, creamy coffee head that dissipates slowly. Dark chocolate dominates the nose, wood and vanilla underneath, sweet but quite balanced. Balanced flavor is quite sweet, sugary vanilla, chocolate at front, more wood and roasted malt mid with a return of vanilla at the end. Super creamy. Very sweet desert beer, neither dry or well hopped., but at least balanced and consistent.
