3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black that light does not penetrate with a thick creamy, tan, lasting, super lacy head. Smells of liquorish, chocolate, hops and malt with, caramel and raisin. Light thin frothy body. Tastes of dark chocolate and roasted malt and some booze and a bit of tangy red citrus on the finish. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
75cl bottle, Geers - Surprisingly light and dry chocolate stout with only 6ABV - drinkable and pleasant with light toasted notes. Could be a bit more full-bodied and rounder, but the chocolate bitterness is a nice touch for a stout this light. In the same category but: finer than the Dupont Monk Stout and not as luxurious & fullfilling as the JeanChris No. 2.

75cl bottle and a very lively one at that. Pours jet black with a foaming tan head. Chocolate and roast malts as expected, some dark fruit and whisky flavours, alcoholic warmth and a dry bitter finish. Great stuff
