Medium aroma of malts, caramel, chocolate, roasted malts and coffee.

Opaque black beer with a medium/large brown head.

Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and coffee.

This beer is intense, complex and balanced. It is damn tasty, especially for the low abv. So much roasted and overall malty flavour, it is simply insane.

77ships (8206) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2016
330 ml. bottle. Bottled 07MAR16. Dark brown, cough sryup hue, creamy tanned head. Great lacing. Nose is powdery mocha, grainy chocolate milk, faintly cheesy hops, coffee grounds, powdery, instant chocolate milk mix. Taste is quite bitter herbal, big charcoal & ashes streak running through it, very bitter coffee grounds, low cacao & toffee, thin, gainy faintl oat milk, bitter roast & more ashes, light cigarette ashes. Massively grainy body & dry, decent for a touch thin, very grainy low ABV stout that is so heavy (overly heavy for me) on ashes & burned dry very grainy grounds.
