3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not a very nice aroma, staying around the malts, peat and bourbon. Unexpected for a stout. The flavour is much better, with chocolates and vanila, kind of a cremy, slick feel, very benevolent.

500ml bottle from the brewery.
Big tan head, body is very dark - near enough black. Nose is coffee and tar. Flavours of coal, toffee, chocolate, berries. Rich, creamy mouthfeel with light carbonation. Nothing too complex about this, just a very good stout.

A colablack colour, a head is medium and beige. The nose of chocolate, balanced roastiness and some bread, also hint of vegetables. Taste is balanced between roastiness and other nuancees, lactose, black coffee and some bitterness in the end. Almost medium bodied, low and small-bubbled carbonation, smooth to drink. Stout with lots of flavours. Balanced and not too burned.
