3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2016 75cl bottle. Dark brown with very big tanned head. It’s not easy to open this beer without spoiling the half of it on the floor. Nose : rich notes of burned malts with dominating black chocolate, dairy, toffee, cheese and nuts. Some honey and flower notes. Sip : medium body with cream like texture. Medium carbonation, a bit more then a typical stout. It’s a sweet beer with quite distinguished cocoa flavor. Got some other flavors balanced in like burned malts, toffee, dried fruits, banana and honey. The alcohol content is warming. Ending is mostly sweet, burned and a bit earthy dry but dominated by black chocolate like feeling. The beer is quite delicious.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.33l bottle. Black body, light beige head. Aroma of caramel, orange, grapes, elderflower and cocoa. Taste of caramel, cocoa, pine, chocolate, grapefruit and grassy hops. It has very limited roasted malt characher, that is quite suprising from a stout. I still like it though.

Clear dark brown to black with hint of red, huge rocky light brown head is long and leaves lacing. Dry, malty, ash, coffee, sweeter notes also, cocoa, bit medicinal herbs. Good nuanced aroma. Round feel, medium to light body, tingly carbonation, bitter sweet, long finish, cocoa in finish. Balanced, good flavors and lots of them, one to sip in peace and enjoy.
