4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at keg n cork. Pours a very dark brown/black that allows little to no light through and a small creamy tan head leaving some good lace up the glass. Aromas are roasted malt, chocolate, licorice(I think it comes from the alcohol), and dark malt bitterness. Flavours are chocolate, dark roasted malts, some licorice and coffee. Very smooth and not obviously an abv of 10 in the taste.

Rich dark chocolate and roasty cereals, dry cocoa finish. Outstanding chocolate brew, dark, smooth and well balanced, works fine as a shared digestive.

Age for just over 1 yr. Strong presence of chocolate in the nose. Slightly oily mouth feel with a solid overall palate. Taste has lots of chocolate and an additional sweetness that reminds me of mild fruit but mostly chocolate. Really solid and big chocolate stout.

This is a excellent 10% stout to go with chocolate. Almost a sweet stout in taste but twice the alcohol. Bite of chocolate, sip of beer, repeat. Yum!
