COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a full-bodied stout with plenty of roast flavor as well as hints of molasses and chocolate. Ridiculous amounts of black and caramel malts make this stout smooth, creamy, and utterly opaque.

The nose is all about the bittersweet chocolate (with just a hint of burnt coffee). Based on this alone, I expected this stout to be a bit on the sweet side. I was quite wrong. It is surprisingly dry given the smell. Despite that, it tastes of a nice rich maltiness, chocolate, coffee, and a bit of a dark almost "woody" flavor. The pour is black with a dark tan head; the mouthfeel is unsurprisingly smooth with a nice thick body to it. Overall, it’s a very good stout and worth buying again.

341ml bottle shared with brother, thanks for buying. Aroma: extremely roasted malt, light smokiness, light chocolate. App: pitch black with small brown head, ok retention, good lacing. Taste and palate: medium to full body, creamy, light to moderate bitter finish. Overall: more British than I thought. Surprised especially just after this Luscious. Not as much British but not far. The roastiness is more present though in Luscious. Easy to drink

Uit de fles geschonken. Mooie zwarte stout met mooie schuimkraag. Aromas van geroosterde mout, drop en stroop. Dit komt ook in de smaak terug. De dropsmaak is aanwezig maar niet overheersend. Verder een heerlijke smaakvolle stout, zacht bitter met een heerlijke afdronk.

Swaroga (2071) - Gdańsk, POLAND - AUG 25, 2016
33cl bottle. Deep coffee with dark chocolate, some little ash, nuts and molasses. Smooth mouth feel. The beer is roasted and semi dry with roasted bitterness. It’s very smooth and rich coffee flavor. Extremely drinkable. Almost a quench thirster.

ClubGonzo (5406) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2016
Bottle @ Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Pours a black body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is caramel, licorice, leather, grains and hints of chocolate and dark malts. Taste is dark chocolate, coffee, licorice, grains and hints of burnt sugar, brown bread and leather. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Nice enough stout, but considering its high rating I don’t really feel it bringing anything new to the table.
