a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, - NOV 15, 2012
Cask; black, thin bubbly head; thick milk chocolate aroma - like cooking chocolate; tastes of two scoops of chocolate and vanilla ice cream that have been left alone in the sun to melt into one another; slight roasted character; an ok novelty half, but its not something Id readily go for again.

MrTipple (3814) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2016
Vanilla, prunes, sweet chocolate, pralines, sweet molasses. Hazy, dark brown, medium, creamy, beige head. Medium sweet. More intense vanilla, plum and other dark fruits, rich, moist dark chocolate pralines, soft carbonation, full bodied. Super rich on vanilla, bit too much for my taste, otherwise very solid Stout. Cask at Tabard, Chiswick.

teorn88 (6974) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2016
Cask at craft 100. It pours a dark brown color with a small beige head. Aroma is medium sweet and lightly roasty malty with notes of lactose vanilla and cocoa. Taste is also medium sweet with notes of vanilla, cocoa, cream and biscuit. Medium bodied with ok carbonation. Overall, quite nice

jamestulloch (3598) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 29, 2016
Bottle from The Beerhive. Black body with a thin beige head. Faint lacing. Aroma of vanilla essence, nuts and cocoa powder. Flavour of blueberries, vanilla ice-cream and milk chocolate. Thin body with a smooth texture. Soft fizz. Quite sweet and heavy on the vanilla, but a decent beer overall.

ManVsBeer (8818) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2016
Cask @ Three Pigeons, Halifax. Extremely dark, but not quite black, with a thick, creamy, slightly off-white head. It does what it says on the tin - its both chocolate and vanilla in aroma and taste, with the former dominant in its nose. It is thinner in its texture than youd expect it to be though.

Towey1989 (2011) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2016
Bottle from Titanic Brewery. Pours a deep brown colour with a medium beige head. Aroma of chocolate, some vanilla, slight oats and subtle roasted malts. Taste of chocolate, some roasted malts, slight vanilla, subtle oats and a little earth. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, roasted, chocolate bitterness in the finish. Superb aroma of chocolate and vanilla, however the taste is a little dryer, some roastiness, subtle earth but its still a tasty stout. Amazing on cask.

sharkydodson (1252) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - DEC 3, 2015
the aroma is caramel and chocolate with hints of vanilla, robust and brown sugar... the taste is chocolate and caramel with notes of roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, toffee and some spices... sweet and bitter aftertaste...

theprof (610) - Nottingham, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2015
Direct from the barrel. The vanilla and chocolate is fragrantly evident. Pours expresso black with bubbly head but no lace. A rich mouthful with the vanilla accenting the sweetness of the roasted malt. The chocolate lurks. There is a bitterness left on the palate but this is exactly what it says - chocolate & vanilla. A change rather than a habit. I suspect it could do wonders on draft at a care home that needed to cure overcrowding. A kindness.

DebWilson (1) - AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2015 does not count
Smooth, sweet, tasty. My first love at first sip brew. Definite chocolate and vanilla aroma and taste. Not easy to find on tap or in stores, however.
