4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Famed and classic chocolate stout with dark beige, creamy, dense and stable head and very dark brown colour with yellowish hue, almost black. Very attractive aroma of chocolate liqueur, cocoa powder, caramel, raisins, dates, liquorice, cognac, coffee and citrus peel. Candied fruit taste, liquorice, very caramelly and chocolatey, thick and powdery mouthfeel, oily, with long peppery hop bitterishness and roasted bitterness in the finish. Very good.

Huge brew! Deep and intense dark choco flavor, pleasant roasted malts, lovely dried fruits, light vanilla, licorice. Interesting vinous note. Pleasant moderate sweetness, with moderate bitterness in finish. Feels very well balanced despite huge accent on choco. Awesome sipping beer.

13-14 bottle from strait and narrow, Lincoln. Black with tan halo head. Aroma is burnt chocolate and molasses. Taste is sweet chocolate and treacle followed by burnt toast and liquorice bitterness. A bit over carbonated for me, lovely oily body though.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home split with Sarah picked up at BEER:Shop St Albans. Thick viscous opaque black coloured pour with a nice tan head that fades. Aroma is chocolate, earthy berry, Belgian like yeast and considerable hot alcohol. Flavour is composed of rich dark chocolate, tangy berry fruits, big rounded and smooth roasted malts with a light ashy finish. Palate is full and smooth bodied, velvety on the tongue with moderate carbonation. Long duration of dark choc and tangy berry fruit. Not so much alcohol in the flavour. Very rich and tasty, nice dessert beer.

Great looking beer, smells like a good stout should smell. Very heavy so lighter stout drinkers might be put off but we’ll worth having this one.
