Bomber to huge snifter. Some chocolate and vanilla and booze in the aroma, along with dark roasted malt. Not the darkest or thickest pour ever, but it’s close. Huge head that diminishes but sticks around the whole time. Tastes starts with sweet vanilla and chocolate but absolutely slaps you in the face in the end with booze and burnt malt. Each sip was and adventure. Wow. madmitch76 (25568) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2012

Aroma- vanilla, chocolate fudge, licorice, oak
Appearance- flat black, some sediment, no real head, alcohol presence
Taste- some char, oak, vanilla, chocolate, more roasted notes
Palate- average mouthfeel for the style
Overall- Good flavors in this brew that just needed to be amped up a little. Nothing particularly memorable here. mikem409 (2029) - bloomfield, Michigan, USA - OCT 19, 2012

Fra fat på Cardinal: soft er stikkordet her, en myk munnfølelse med vanilje, litt frukt og Minde Moccabønner i lange baner. Flott skum. Et herlig øl hvor det høye vitamininnholdet er skjult i all velsmaken. Swans (137) - FRANCE - OCT 16, 2012
Nice chocolate and vanilla flavour and aroma in a dark petrol ale with a nice mouthfeel.
