3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent June 2013 consumed at home in company of Casey & Traci 06.07.13 Pours black with dark brown head, looks good. The nose is a good combination of vanilla and coffee with a goodly dollop of cream and chocolate or milky, creamy chocolate to be more precise. Whilst I like this beer and whilst I like the vanilla, maybe the vanilla is deployed just a little too heavily here, nice but a little overkill. I think the strength is very well masked I really didn’t believe it was that strong. Good beer, very good in fact, smooth, indulgent and really tasty, just not quite great. A8 A4 T7 P4 Ov15 3.8
Black as the soul of midnight with no moon and stars. A large pillowy head of brown foam sits on top. Big hit of vanilla up front on the nose with cocoa, rich caramel, and molasses. A knockout in flavor too being very rich in caramel, cocoa, coffee, and vanilla. minihame2 (747) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 11, 2017
Thick and oily black colour, small creamy tan had. Aroma is vanilla, malts and chocolate. Taste is sweet, chocolatey finish. Above medium body, low carbonation, soft and smooth mouthfeel. Very good. Learninbeer (639) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - NOV 11, 2017
The aroma is vanilla, some coffee and chocolate. Pours dark brown almost black with big tan head mostly diminishing and excellent lacing. The taste is a medium sweet and a light bitter. Very smooth. The body is medium/full, the texture creamy, the carbonation soft and the finish long. VERY GOOD!! Finn (8155) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2017

Canned. Pours black, tan head. Aroma is lots of coffee and vanilla. Chocolate, vanilla syrup. Really nice. I was hoping the vanilla wouldn't be too weak and it delivered. Flavor is lovely vanilla goodness and chocolate. Plenty of coffee too. Excellent. Very pleased with that. Would love to try this again.

Bottle share at Mon Petit Cafe, Stuttgart. San Diego version. Mixture of caramel and vanilla, very sweet and strong character. Had it after the maple one and was kind of missing the maple addition. Sigmund (7919) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2017
Shared can from Mikkeller San Diego, at Cardinal Mikkeller tasting. Pitch black colour, minimal tan head of poor retention. Sweetish aroma of malt sugar, vanilla and coffee. Very sweet flavour of vanilla and coffee, too sweet and one-dimensional for my taste. tandembrauer (1617) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2017
