Black beer, creamy beige head. Sturdy aroma of slightly burned bread, licorice, coffee, dark fruits, and fresh fruity hops. Sweetish at first, drier in the finish with balanced bitterness, a hint of milk sugar and slight acidity. Soft, velvety texture. Great stout.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at HBF2011. Pours a very dark brown with a large, latte head. Aroma is rather weak, roasted malts, some coffee notes. Fortunately taste is much stronger. Roasted malts yes, but dark chocolate as well as molasses and caramel, but mostly lots of coffee of the mocha variety. Quite sweet. Gets a bit too sweet nearing the end of the 2 dl portion. Some water had between gulps helps refresh the palate. Palate is full and sticky. Not much carbonation.
