3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle to stout glass
Decadent caramel, lots of malt, some brine, and cream. Silky jet black with a thin tan head. Malt, caramel, treacle, oats, some coffee and a strong late bitterness. It’s medium bodied, and silky, and has a slight warmness to it. I can’t believe this is 11.5%...at least not right now. This is going down quick and I’ll believe that in 15 minutes.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours brown, brown and thin layer of foam. Aroma not really there, maybe too too cold - but not getting much even when it warms. Taste is warming, sweet, alcohol kick and liquorice with some dark fruits. Beer for a cold winter night. More like a sweet porter for me, not so much of a stout. Good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is licorice, coffee, dark sugars and roasted malts. Taste is a deep rich malt profile that is similar to aroma with extra tastes from toffee and caramel. Finishes with a slight bitterness that is fairly well balanced. Appearance is black with a medium brown head that retains fairly well.
