biirusaikou (2678) - - OCT 13, 2013
Huge toffee nose. Vanilla ice cream flavor, roasted cocoa, bittersweet finish. Lovely creamy sweet stout, almost more of a dessert than a beer.

Theydon_Bois (18250) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2013
Bottle split at GBBF 13, thanks to Kyoto Lefty the Dutch sounding dude, 16/08/13. Light black with a moderate tan head which dissipates edgeward. Nose is vanilla, light roast, chocolate, sugars. Taste comprises dark toffee, cocoa, sugars, vanilla essence. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry finish. Ok drinkable stuff but a little overly sweet and sickly, even for a sweet stout! A pint of this would become a chore I imagine!

Scopey (13560) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle at GBBF 2013 bottle share. It pours darkest brown with a thick light tan head. The nose is mellow roast, earth, light sweetness, vanilla, faint smoke and coffee grinds. The taste is mellow roast, sweet vanilla, treacle, sweet coffee, coconut and mild bitterness with a dry, earthy finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Well balanced and rather drinkable. Decent.

dnicolaescu (2337) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - AUG 23, 2013
GBBF 2013 backlog. Thanks to the RateBeer team/KyotoLefty. BOTTLE. Colour: almost black. Aroma: just vanilla. Taste: sweet, nothing more than vanilla. It is so much vanilla dominated, that it feels like artificially flavoured.

yespr (42183) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2013
33 cl bottle. Pours hazy dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is toffee malty and vanilla. Thick malty, sweet and dense vanilla. Mild bitterness, otherwise rather sweet toffee malty with a heavy load of vanilla.

minihame2 (557) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAR 2, 2013
The aroma is very light but it does have some light caramel malty flavour to it. The body is black with a latte coloured head. Taste is a little bit stingy at first, after which you get the stouty roasted malts with a little bit of vanilla. An interesting mixture of sweetness and bitterness. The palate is also very typical to stouts; very little carbonation, light and a little bit oily feel to it. Overall I have to say I wasnt really impressed by this beer.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4850) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 2, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2013 On tap at Yellow Ape Craft. A light feeling dark beer that has 6.5% ABV. It is a mild stout with chocolate and vanilla overtones. It isnt cloying & has a bit of a bitter kick. Quite palatable, I think it would be great with ice cream but recommend drinking it in small amounts unless you like sweet beers! Feb. 3rd Bottle from Yodobashi Camera. I think it has a nice roasted taste, very crisp but the vanilla is a bit too strong. Like it was added using extract. I preferred it on tap. Strangely, after warming up the vanilla melted back into the background... I guess it just goes to show the importance of drinking a beer at the right temperature!

maekchu (3706) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 29, 2012
Draught at Yellow Ape Craft. Fresh sweet chocolate nose. Pitch black, thin solid tan head. Boiled coffee in initial (but not boiled to the point of unpleasant harshness); mid palate sweetens nicely; smooth chocolate and coffee finish. Medium body. Labelled as a "fruit" beer on the pub menu. Vanilla is pleasant and minimal. Very drinkable stuff.

shoulderbroken (4037) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle bought from Hasegawa. Dark brown colour with small golden head. Aroma is vanilla, cream, roasty malt, bit of chocolate, sweetness. Everything you would expect really. Taste is nice, lots of vanilla and cream again, touch of cherry, some dryness at the end. Quite slight in the mouth for a stout, but I wont hold it against it. Maybe makes it more drinkable. Sweet vanilla and chocolate finish. Not overly sweet, and pretty damn good.

sulawang (1116) - - JAN 22, 2012
pours coffee brown, sticky lacing, small head, thin retention, small and micro CO2. Lots of chocolate on the nose, some roasted coffee. 6/10 sweet aromatic chocolate mixed with roasted coffee and vanilla undertones. Great body up front but ends with a partially watery tingly carbonated finish. Medium-high depth, medium complexity, fair carry, long length. Overall quite polished but the finish is somewhat off-balanced.
