4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours pitch black. Quite outstanding head volume, world class lacing and retention.
Outstanding nose of semi-sweet dark chocolate, roast, caramel, vanilla hints and a light berry like note.
Light full body that is extremely smooth with a solid creaminess. World class carbonation with just the right carbonation / body balance. The middle provides a nice effervescent burst that trails into a finely bubbled prickly finish.
The flavor profile is world class. Balance is near perfect for this stout that brings a nice pine middle bitterness that compliments the roast. It begins with a mild roast character that has just enough bite. Caramel provides a higher level of sweetness than most stouts and shines after the middle as the chocolate influence maximizes. You don’t taste the alcohol, but it makes its presence in the very dry lingering finish and with a bit of heat.
