4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Inky black body with a layered dark and milk chocolate head.
Mmm- lots of coffee and chocolate in the nose.
Intense mocha flavor, with coffee leading and chocolate supporting.
Thick and warming, with with a slight (almost) gritty feeling induced by the light carbonation.
It’s super creamy and decadent. I’ll have to try baking with this someday.

Another really good stout from DH. Pours deep dark brown with small one finger head. Quickly diminishes to no lace at all. Nice coffee and milk chocolate flavors with a sweet finish. Bit thin and extremely low carb at this age. Good coffee aroma. This rating is for a bottle opened after > 1 yr of cellaring.

Aroma is coffee, chocolate, dark/roasted malts and a hint of dark fruit. The flavor is coffee, chocolate/dark chocolate, dark fruit/mild sweetness and a mix of a acidity and slight tartness in the finish.

It is an average stout. I take an observation from another and if I compare with others it is missing something. We could say a bit watery but it is a good one. Nice black color and thin foam. The coffee is present typical from stout. It could be a bit stronger with more characters. It could be a nice stout to begin the night.

Looks like motor oil. No head. No lacing. Somewhat sweet. Milk taste but not creamy. Needs something more (vanilla? Coconut?) Tasted at Elijah Ps.

Ich kann mit diesen ganzen Stouts nicht viel anfangen. Viel Schärfe und eine starke Schwere bedingt durch den ganzen Alkohol. Dahinter etwas Milch, Zucker und Kaffee. Ganz nett, aber definitiv nicht meins.

Bottle. Sensoric. Pitch black with small, light brown head. Definetely milk chocolate aroma along with some caramel and light coffee notes. Taste is semi-sweet (milk, biscuity). Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation finish is slightly bitter. In general solid stout, not even very boring. Wotyh trying.
