Bottle. Near black in color with a brown head. Chocolate and roasted coffee notes in aroma with some additional hints of vanilla and slightly burnt wood. Dark and pleasant. Chocolate and coffee notes in taste as well. Smooth one too. Roasted and light chocolate bitter notes in finish. A real treat.

Bottle from Beer Cartel 301015. Everything good about stout is contained in this beer. Thick black colour, dense head of light brown foam, aromas that fill the nose and flavours that make your eyes roll back in your head.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Pitch black colored, beige creamy head that nicely stays. Rich nose and taste with chocolate and mocha, milky coffee, nice floral hoppy backbone, liquorice in the distance; light bitterness in the finish. Finish lingers nicely, with coffee and chocolate maltiness. Velvety smooth mouthfeel, good body, low carbonation. Very well balanced, rich flavours considering the low alcohol grade.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Black with a foamy light tan head. Rich dark aroma with some roasted dark grains and a fair bit of dark chocolate, slightly bitter and earthy but also slightly toasty and biscuity. Rich flavor with a full body, featuring roast and dark chocolate, a wee bit of earthy biscuit, slight licorice, and a bit of toast. Nice subtle chocolaty sweetness throughout. Really complex and well balanced. Dark and sumptuous without being boozy.

Bottle shared, thanks Jonno. Rich dark chocolate, roasted malt, licorice and herbal notes, low carbonation, dry finish. Solid stuff, if not maybe a bit too classic.
