3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with a thin brown head that fades quickly. Aroma is coffe with cream, cocoa nibs, and biscuity malt, all fairly smooth and rounded. Flavor is of weak coffee, cocoa, a little less malt then the aroma a bit sharper. Medium body, palate is a bit oily and a bit watery. Finishes a bit watery with aids drinkability but hinders the satisfaction of a nice velvety finish.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home. Has a pitch black colour with a medium, creamy, light brown head. Roasted tones in the aroma along with dark chocolate, wood, leather nougat (Ferrero Rocher if you know), ash, smoke and soy sauce. The flavour is more roasted with more ash, campfire and coffee beans. Has a slick mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. A fantastic mix of roasted malt and sweet lactose. A tasteful and aromatic dessert beer.

Got this from Shane. Poured out a pretty jet black with a dark brown head. It was a textbook stout pour. Big roasty nose that was pretty inviting. Flavor was pretty big for a 7.5 abv stout. Big roasted malts, creamy dark chocolate, light nutty bitterness that balances pretty well. It reminded me of a bigger beer without the booziness. I thought this was done quite well.
