Tasted from a 12oz bottle. It poured an jet black with with a frothy brown head and lacing that was fairly thick and creamy. Rich aromas of malt, chocolate, and a hint of coffee. Smooth tasting, roasted malt and semi-sweet chocolate taste. Really can’t taste the 10% alcohol. My favorite chocolate stout.

Better than I expected but not exactly unique in any way to me. This is going to be a short review, and I will just let the numbers do the talking. Had a cool minty type flavor... A little bit like indian paan that I wasn’t expecting, but was nice. Other than that, just a high quality, generic IS.

När den förväntade "chockladattacken" uteblir lämnas ett stort hål i sinnet där skepsisen tidigare låg på lur. Dödshota grannen per telefon och rusa sedan in till honom med en tårta så kommer han av ren lycka älska bakverket trots att han är både glutenallergisk och laktosintolerant. Psykologi kallas det. Ytterligare en konst som Brooklyn tydligen behärskar förutom att brygga förbannat bra öl.

Coco and something else I can't pick on the nose. Wow first taste! I'm speechless. Um soft carbonation, low to medium sweetness . It's got a big coffee hit. Can't even pick the 10 %

355ml bottle from Great Grog. Pours jet black, thin tan head. Aromas of liquorice, vegetal notes, light dark chocolate (if that makes sense). Taste brings some coffee roast, booze notes become a little harsher. Quite light body for the strength. Used to love this, but these days there are better strong stouts out there (although maybe not at the same price!).

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours very dark with a deep tan head that is quite dense.
Deep roasted malt aroma with hints of chocolate and burnt malts.
Hop bouquet as expected was sutble.
Definitely big roasted maltiness here. Hints of burnt malts, smoke, cofee and chocolate. Hops are less intrusive after a year but a nice bitter bit is present.
A thick full bodied beer that is smooth with a good alcohol warming on finish.
A fair amount of alcohol and the style in general would prevent me from having more then maybe two.
