Erzengel (2609) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 6, 2014
Dark in the glass, intense espresso in the nose. The beer starts dry, espresso-like, dark roasted. Intensive and still easy to drink. The mainpart is coffee, slightly sour, refreshing. In the aftertaste smoother, roasted-dry, slightly bitter.
Very nice stout. --> 12/12/12/12

crazyvin (1940) - New York, USA - MAR 3, 2014
A brown body with a brown head, nice retention and lace. It seemed to have a slight elevation of carbonation. Aroma had a strong roasted malt presence upfront, mild hints of cocoa balanced it out. Flavor was an excellent blend of sweet and roasted malts. Although at times the flavor seemed two-dimensional the beer was altogether good. A nice smooth finish. Easy to drink, but it did have some body to it. Carbonation seemed high but was not a negative factor.

On tap, in a pint glass. Very smooth indeed. Slight chocolate taste, not overly aromatic. This is a really nice sweet / milk stout.

Not a huge aroma here. Thick dark beige head. Good sweet chocolate with roasted flavor. Slightly bitter. Lots of malts detected here. Soft body, not too thick.

From tap. Dark pour, thick beige head that turns into heavy lacing. Creamy... obviously. Great roasted malts with rich chocolate bite on the end.

Fresh bottle. Pours solid black with tan head. Big aroma here if vanilla, some allspice, cocoa, coffee. Taste is coffee bitterness, nice vanilla and toasty notes, well roasted barley. Lots of bubbles..lingers on the palate. Smooth but not as creamy as I would expect. Still delicious.

A very dark pour with tan head. A faint smell of cocoa. Tastes of dark, bitter chocolate that lingers a while. A nice beer.
