Erzengel (8447) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2014
0,5l bottle. The "German stadart-type" - interesting that they use it in Maine ;)
The beer is very dark with a nice beige head. The nose is intense and malty-deep. The beer starts viscous, very roasted with hints of Espresso and dark chocolate. The mainpart is slightly sweet but still dry, lots of roasted aroma. But for the deepness and intensity highly drinkable. The aftertaste is great roasted, especially in the end where there come roasted or even burned bread crumb together with slightly sweet espresso-beans or very dark chocolate together with a moderate and well-balamced bitterness. This very great taste stays long on the tongue - but where is the vanilla. I couldnt taste it even when I think about it.
Nevertheless an absolutely great brewed stout! --> 14/13/15/15

Tap at brewery with commonmac and rosskyle and samadouche. Black with small off white head. Beautiful chocolate aroma. Taste is amazing. Chocolate, roasted malt, high sugar, very smooth finish and just enough bite. One of the best stouts Ive had.

Poured into a snifter, dark brown with a light brown head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of coffee, chocolate and vanilla. Tastes starts as predominately coffee, but mellows to a soft vanilla, well balanced sweet and bitter tastes on the tongue. Silly smooth mouthfeel, Very impressive. Overall, this is one of the best stouts Ive had, highly recommended, I will be looking to load up on this as soon as possible.

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours an orangeish black with a thick, creamy, resilient beige head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, vanilla, hazelnut, roasted grains. Flavor is coffee, chocolate, coconut, brown sugar. Finish is loads of vanilla, coffee, chocolate. Very soft. Lingering sugar. Full, thick body, velvety and soft mouthfeel, weak carbonation. This beer just so happens to be everything that I ever looked for in a stout. A pure delight.

Very good tasting vanilla stout. Too often breweries put too much in their porters/stouts (extra coffee, chili peppers, etc) Then you find a beer that gets it just right. This is one of those beers. Just the right amount of oats for a smooth not slick mouthfeel and a well balanced vanilla flavor. Ill have to find this again as my taste was poured from a group-sample bottle at a party. If you like this also seek out Breckenridge, CO vanilla porter.
