Clear Bottle. Chocolate aroma-nice. Dark with a strong vanilla presence. Bit of a novelty but still quite pleasant. worldbeertaste (1805) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2012
Excellent a real treat indeed. Dark Brown with a thick tan frothy head. Stong smell of chocolate, heavy malt roast , vanilla and caramel. Sweet start with a stong roast finish. Medium oily nice and smooth. Taste of Chocolate, vanilla, cherry, malt. It’s like a desert in a drink. I love a good sweet stout. DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2012
Quirte surprised this has got a separate entry to Titanic Chocolate and Vanilla Stout, also 4.5% and very similar in flavour. Mahogany with ruby trim and a slim tan top. Confectionery and added essence aroma a la Young’s. Same taste; bit sickly and synthetic but with enough roast and seriousness to back it; coffee, burnt wood, Bailey’s notes, some incinerated peanut. Titanic brew some very good beers and some utter filth; this falls midway between the two camps and is an enjoyable enough bottle of stout. rauchbier (3880) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2012
Bottle, from Morrisons Scunthorpe. Black with some brown flashes round the edges, thin shortlived beige head and good condition. Earthy and dusty nose with hints of chocolate and coffee and a hint of vanilla ice cream. Initial chocolate sweetness in the mouth before a building dry bitterness develops with some woody vanilla notes, finish is sweet with chocolate most dominant but their is some bitterness in the mouth long afterwards.

500ml clear bottle from Morrisons. I’m not a fan of the Morrisons supermarket - but they do have a decent beer selection. This is a drinkable bottled black beer. It’s gently sweet, with some pleasant bitter notes to add balance and interest. The chocolate and vanilla flavour is acceptable, though feels a little false, despite Titantic saying they use real chocolate and vanilla. Perhaps the filtering takes away some of the authentic flavours? The overall feel is of those flavoured coffees. I’d rather the flavours came from the malts - there are decent chocolate malts. But the beer is drinkable.

500ml bottle. Pours dark brown/black with a cream coloured head. Aroma and flavour of chocolate and vanilla. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Not a lot of flavour past the first couple of seconds. Gary (1999) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2011 (bottled)Ths is reminiscent of the generic flavours profile of Youngs Chocolate #; A beer ive never liked . Some beefy , surpy chocolate. Gunky , if that’s even a word. tommann (3712) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2011

500mL bottle, pours black with a beige head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla and a slight metallic note. Flavour reveals the chocolate and vanilla initially, with a bit of that metallic note and a slightly bitter finish. Thin body with an unpleasant metallic, bitter aftertaste. dynamiteninja (1853) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2010

Turkish Delight coming through as it warms, and ending with soap suds.Bitter with a sweet finish. Dry. Moderate carbonation. Rather enjoyable.
