ryanscourt (870) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Dark brown body with brown head. Strong malt aroma. Taste is a little different. Creamy body. Flavor is mainly roasted malt but with some sweetness that is different. Not sure what the flavor is, fruits? Hop finish is a little present compared to a more choclately one that i would like. Pretty good and a little different, Im fine with a good American stout though.

Nydt af flaske i pint. 01-07-14. MHT 01-07-16. Tydelig duft af gær, blandet med diverse kraftige malte; brændthed, kaffe, mørk chokolade, lakrids, karamel, vaniljesødme, brød, dertil også moderat humlebitterhed, også duft af bananer og anden frugt.Enorm brusende, lysebrun skumkrone, som tager nogen tid om at forsvinde, hvortil den efterlader sparsom blondekant. Ingen sigtbarhed, mousserende og mørkebrun. Den starter med moderat sødme; vanilje, karamel, brunt sukket og kraftig bitterhed; helt tydelige lakridsnoter, kaffe, citrus og moderat surhed; brændthed. Afslutningsvis tager sødmen til i styrke, men afbalanceres fint med bitterheden og stadig moderat surhed. Varigheden af smagsoplevelse er lang og nuanceret. Kroppen er medium med mineralsk tekstur, tør og livlig kulsyre. Afsluttende er den moderat harsk og lettere metallisk. Spændende, nærmest champagne stout. Blanding af belgisk ale og engelsk stout:)

Tight white coffee coloured head, which tops a bubbly black beer. Rich stout taste balanced so it is not too sweet or burnt. Does have a tendency to want to leave the bottle before your glass is ready, unless you chill it first. Problem you then have to wait till it warms to fully appreciate it's full on flavour
