On tap, poured into a stemmed tulip. The aroma is creamy with vanilla - definite lactose sugar - with chocolate and smokey marshmallow. The dark, deep caramel brown color is topped by a brown, dense fizz that has moderate retention and good lace. The medium high sweetness is cut by a subtle, medium bitter chocolate note. It’s creamy texture had a soft, fizzy carbonation. The medium full body has flavors of marshmallow, milk, and chocolate with a smooth vanilla bean finish that turns over to dark chocolate with a mild spice note. It’s aftertaste is mild and reminiscent of brownies and vanilla cream. Ungstrup (38941) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2015

Draught @ the brewpub. Pours hazy very dark brown with small tan head. Clear aroma of roast and malt, with notes of lactose and chocolate. Bitter, roasty flavour with notes of malt and coffee and touches of yeast and dark chocolate. Roasty aftertaste. Rich body. Pleasant. Meilby (11791) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2015

On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a tan head. Coffee aroma. Coffee and chocolate flavor. A little thin but a nice stout on tap. hopdog (13249) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2014
On tap at the Brew Pub. Poured a black color with a smaller sized off white head. Chocolate, lactose, roast, vanilla, and some coffee. SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2014
Un verre si facile à boire. Presque noir, ce stout montre une belle mousse et une dentelle intéressante. Le nez est bien alléchant avec ses notes de guimauve et ses notes de tartinade choco-noisettes. Sa bouche, en plus de capitaliser sur ces belles notes douces, montre aussi des grains de café fraîchement moulues et de la vanille finement grillée. Au palais, le liquide aurait pu démontrer une plus grande onctuosité. En finale, une légère amertume traversée par de bonnes notes chocolatées. jredmond (8839) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Draft at St. Bock with Andrew, PJ, streetcar, Brendan and Ricky. Pints served with a marshmallow garnish. Pours pitch black brown body with thin tan lacing. Aroma is super chocolately and sweet lactose character. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with chocolate dominating. Some vanilla extra following through in the finish. One dimensional, but very well done. LilBeerDoctor (4231) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2013
On randall with magnum and golding hops, cacao, cafe, vanilla. Pours black with a very small foamy head. Aroma of chocolate (super rich, fudgy chocolate), vanilla, very light coffee, lactose. Heavenly. Flavor of tootsie roll, chocolate, light bitterness, light char, vanilla, and more chocolate in the finish. Sweet and very chocolatey. There is a mild hop presence but the chocolate dominates. Tasty stuff.
