Bottle. Winter 2014-2015. This is a very nice stout from Brooklyn Brewery. I was impressed with the nice cascading from the pour. Velvety smooth mouthfeel.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tykt og svart med brunt skum som forsvinner raskt. Sjokolade, korn, kaffe og et sting av alkohol i duften. Det samme følger i smaken sammen med en deilig kjeksaktig bitterhet i avslutning. Tykk, oljeaktig munnfølelse.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours jet black with a thin tan head. Dry, smoky, and boozy, it’s almost like a red wine to me. I’m thinking my bottle must have been off because I don’t see how this gets such high reviews.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
From bottle. Poured with 4cm high, pretty head. Having read other reviewers I don’t think my bottle was quite right. The balance and complexity wasn’t there as it should be in a good stout, and the booze came through more strongly than I liked. Would try again to see if it was different but would not have another if what I drank was the real deal.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black with nearly no head. Lots of bitter dark chocolate. Highly sweet with a mild bitter finish. Flat to low carbonation. Rather one dimensional chocolate.
