3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle sample courtesy of "hannont". Colour...infinitely black with a thick tan head. Nose...coffee, coffee, coffee, with just a touch of dark chocolate. Palate... boy howdy! This stout will wake you up in the morning!! The espresso is massive in this beer! It’s tough to tell what other flavours might exist here because the espresso is soooooo strong! The mouthfeel is thick, chewy and quite coating, as well as being fairly sweet. I rather wonder if this beer would do well to sit in the cellar for a few years.
