3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from New Seasons Woodstock.
A: Pure black with a thin cappuccino head and a lick of lacing.
N: Very chocolately with a big undercurrent of espresso and roast. Rye shows up in an earthiness and peppercorn which is reminiscent of so much whiskey. I get a noticeable element of clover honey from the nose as well, and a bit of wood and graininess. Some raisin in here as well.
T: Quite bitter with a touch of sweetness to compensate.
M: Medium body, no alcohol presence. tickling carbonation.
O: A fine export stout. This is really well done and it leans towards a smokier side which quite a few stouts shy away from. I can dig it.
