500ml bottle : In a La Chouffe Tulip . The commercial on the bottle depicts this more like a wanky coffee .."vanilla pods , raw cocoa". What ever , its a stout in the Foreign style and I like them as they typically come from non beer places like Sri Lanka .. Dark abyss liquid ...a beige head sits like a moody cloud in Autumn . Roast malt nose giving birth to suggested wanky coffee , dark chocolate , burnt sugars , ink , vanilla , fudge , burnt rich interplay . A wave of rich roast coats the palate ... roast coffee , chewy smoky nuance rise and dance on my tongue ..burnt dark chocolate .subtle vanilla gimick . Good shit !

Aroma of muddy dog hair and barley. Has a nice big head and dark brown body. Flavour is good spicy chocolate with coffee hints. Kind of weak on the mouth. Itís an okay stout with some interesting elements.

500ml bottle at home, from Cornelius, Easter Road, Edinburgh (bb 31 Oct 2016), chocolate, cocoa aroma, near black with a short-lived thin head, initial vanilla sweetness, chocolate, coffee, earthy, then berry fruits as it warms, soft carbonation.

Tulip glass at home, 27/06/16. Bought at M&S, Brooklands. Dark as youíd expect but not much head despite my attempt to produce one. I can certainly pick up the cocoa and vanilla aroma (but that could be because I just read the bottle!). A sweet smelling stout. Initial thoughts are that the taste matches the aroma. However after a couple of mouthfulls Iím finding it a bit too sweet, especially with the residue on my tongue. Nice enough but not one Iíd drink multiple pints of.

500ml bottle. A fantastic chocolaty stout. Recommended. But it is actually better on tap than bottle. I tried it at Sadlers Windsor Castle pub, and it was sublime.

MattyDTD (2) - Ormskirk, Lancashire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2016 does not count
Pour - Pours a very dark brown almost black appearence, 1 finger head which decipates withing a minute or so. Aroma - Rather boozy for a 6.6% beer compared to others but that smell is carried by dark roasted malts accompanied by dark coffee notes with vanilla on the back end. Taste - Creamy, Frui and nut chocolate, vanilla pod finished with the malts that stick to the roof of your mouth. Overall - Probably the best stout ive tried. Has everything a stout lover wants. Big bold flavours and smells. A heavy stout that sticks to your mouth and dances on your tongue. If only it had the guinness type head it would be perfect. 10/10

Czarne w kolorze o malej bezowe pianie . W zapachu dominuje kakao i czekolada oraz pakone chmiele . W smaku delikatne o wtraznej nucie czekoladowej ale nie jest zbyt slodkie. Dodatkowo kakao orzechy platki. Niezly stout za niska cene.

Bottle from B&M store in Hounslow. A dark brown/black coloured pour with a thin beige head on top. Chocolate, malty, vanilla aroma. Tastes similar, chocolate, malty, vanilla, slightly thin and sweet but also quite drinkable.
