3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50 cl bottle. Pours a really dark brown to blackish beer in the glass, thin beige to light brown head. Aroma is that familiar toffee, caramel, coffee roasted barley kind of aromas, as one would expect from a stout. Flavours are rich and complex. Lively carbonation up front, toasty toffee in the middle, and dry coffee bitterness in the aftertaste, lasting for a long time. Vanilla? Label says so, I can’t pick up any of that.
