Pours cola brown with a tan foam head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt, and coffee. Sweet flavor with chocolate upfront followed quickly vanilla with an undercurrent of roasted malt with hint of coffee. Very enjoyable.

Nice, full tan head with good retention and sticky lace. Fairly black hued with a murky brown edging. Soft nose of chocolate, vanilla, roast and some coffee notes. Medium bodied with a gentle carbonation, lil oily, chewy and a touch priclkly. Easy and tasty flavors of chocolate, roast and vanilla, some light cherry notes and a hint of black patent.Nice, dry roasty finish is a little chalky Bottle from statelineliquors. .

Bottle from Gianni - thanks! Black pour with a dark tan head. Aroma is light vanilla, chocolate, roast, slight coffee, abd maybe some minimal hop biterness. Taste is vanilla bean with dry chocolate and coffee followed by darker chocolate notes. Dry and clean mouthfeel. Good beer but almost too clean and tight in its engineering with the stout aspects seeming slightly sterile.

Aniela (4216) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2013
Bottle in NYC sept 2012. Black beer with a beige head. Coffee and vanilla aroma. Bitter coffee and some vanilla flavour. Nice beer :-)

3.5
MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 25, 2013
Bouteille de 500 ml. Arômes assez délicats de vanille et de torréfaction. Robe noire et opaque, peu de mousse et effervescence moyenne. En bouche, la bière développe de belles notes chocolatées appuyées par quelques accents de vanille. Le corps demeure assez svelte, ce qui rend la bière plutôt facile à boire. Finale assez douce et chocolatée, présentant peut-être une légère touche métallique. Une stout relativement simple, mais agréable.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Pours dark brown with a lasting, creamy light brown head. Smells of vanilla, chocolate, roasty malt. Tastes of vanilla, some roasted malt, some tartness on the finish. I’d like this better without the vanilla.

pineypower (3332) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle from Spirits Berkeley. Pours a very nice looking pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, roast, mild vanilla, light coffee and some mild bitterness. Taste is complex, with a nice silky mouthfeel. Chocolate, light coffee, vanilla, light coffee, with some more lingering vanilla bean in the finish. Well done.

3.7
bbbeer (819) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Very dark brown, small pretty dark brown head. Aroma chocolate, toasty malt, caramel. Medium body. Flavor on the sweet side but with good balance. Cocoa, pleasantly grainy, creamy finish. Vanilla minimal. Very drinkable. Nice.

3.3
arkurzynski (2427) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Deep brown/black pour. Aroma is clean roast malt, cocoa, mild caramel, and artificial vanilla. Flavor is a soft, semi-gritty roast with very faint vanilla sweetness. Clean roast finish. A bit dull with nothing really showcased. Average palate presence.
