Draught at the brewery. Pours with a black body with a frothy, dark tan head, medium last, that sticks to the sides of the glass. Aroma is not that strong/powerfull, but what is there is gooood. :-) inviting aroma of sweetish dark malts, licorice, and dark chocolate with hints of roast, smoke and alchol.Taste of dark maltiness, fulled roasted, coffee and dark chocolate. Medium sweetness, bitterness from the hops, and ends with an nice taste of licorice that lasts forever. Palate is really nice and creamywith good carbonation. This is a damm good cup of beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of ice cream like sweetness, roast and hops with a burnt quality. Good, but not particularly strong. Pitch black appearance with fair amount of light tan foam. The thinness of the appearance keeps it from being a 5. Taste is a very sharp bite of roast and hops that lasts well into the aftertaste, finally giving way to a booze burn. Nothing sweet here, it’s a full fledged Imperial Stout. Surprisingly thin palate; I really wanted more in this aspect. Overall this was good; I would classify it as a poor man’s Bell’s Expedition Stout. Not 100 in my book by any means, but enjoyable and potent, bith in flavor and ABV.

Ok that’s a stout! Although the appearance is its weak point due to lots of sediments aroma and taste go great with deep coffee and dark chocolate flavours. Smooth and tasty with the booze that kicks after few sips. A pleasure of beer.
