Pours black and heavy. Small brown head, nice and dark. The head fades away quickly, but sticky lacing coats the glass. The aroma is full of vanilla with big chocolate backing it up. Coffee provides some depth, but it's still just a touch simple. However, the chocolate and vanilla provides plenty to enjoy. Big cocoa, milk and dark chocolate. Very rich, authentic vanilla. The taste is similar. Huge chocolate and vanilla with a bit more coffee. It's quite sweet but not cloying, and this beer definitely could have gone down that road. I'm also pleased to find that the vanilla flavor avoids any artificial, frosting-ish tendency. Big coffee, dark chocolate and vanilla ice cream in the finish. Definitely lives up to the name. The feel is creamy and thick. Luxurious. This is excellent stuff. One of the best Mikkeller beers that I've tried.
