4.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: general brewery, some corn, ambiguous malt, not as much caramel, toffee, and chocolate in the aroma as I might have expected; Appearance: this stout just looks awesome before you’ve even put it to your nose or to your lips, very dark, like strong coffee, with just a hint of red if you can get the slightest amount of light to pierce through the edges of the brew, head is thick with a caramel to mahogeny tint; Taste: is absolutely fantastic, this beer really deserves its rating and is popular for a reason, fig and dried fruits come first, followed by bitter chocolate as you exhale after the first draught, followed subtle but roasty oats/malts, primary impressions are 50/50 sweet/bitter; Palate: the dark chocolate is truly in the aftertaste, which makes this beer extremely drinkable in that you want more and more once you get started, carbonation is good, sometimes I’ve had stouts of a similar ilk that are complex in flavour but, overall, taste gross because they’re practically flat as soon as you uncap; Overall: one of my favorite stouts, although, admittedly, stout is not my favorite style, so there’s probably several out there worthy of receiving similar accolades, highly recommended

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tiefschwarz im Glas mit schokoladenbraunem Schaum.
Geruch etwas nach alter Pappe.
Der Antrunk ist dickflüssig, leicht säuerlich. Zum Hauptteil mild, die 10% sind nicht zu schmecken. Der säuerlich-schokoladige Antrunk wird im Hauptteil deutlicher. Sehr mild.
Auf der Zunge bleibt eine röstmalzig-schokoladig-leicht sauer-herbe Note zurück. Anklänge an Espresso.
--> Sehr interessant. Vielen Dank an Sean für dieses Bier!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 355mL bottle. Thick black with robust tan head. Mild roast and chocolate aroma. The bitter coffee roast has a nice hit on the flavour, a subtle sweet chocolate flavour comes a little later. Thick and creamy.

Roasted chocolate aroma. Very sweet throughout the taste. Taste of dark chocolate, burnt toast, and licorice. Great chocolate stout that actually has a strong chocolate taste.

Bottle at The Bier Garden. Tan head over black body. Deep chocolate flavor. Roasted malts are nice. Of the same style, I prefer Founders BS. Still a solid outing here.
