3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark black with a sliver of highlight at the edge. A big khaki head that settles to a dollop and then a film and leaves excellent lacing. Aroma is a bit subdued, maybe because I have a cold, but still detect roasted malt, chocolate and some caramel sweetness. Taste had some sweetness at first and some underlying fruitiness which was a bit surprising but enjoyable. You get the dark chocolate and smooth roasted flavor combining and then transitioning into a coffee with light cream. Finishes with a little sweetness and lingering coffee and bitterness. Mouthfeel flirts at being both soft and creamy with a medium body and medium/high carbonation. Good stout that has more sweetness than some but not too much. Has a smooth bitterness and overall smooth character to the flavors. Nothing overpowers but blends nicely and tastes bigger than it is. If it has any fault it’s that may be over carbonated. I’d drink again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, cellared 1.5 years.
Big, creamy, fluffy, thick deep brown head. Very dark beer. Smell is crisp, clean, vanilla, chocolate.
Very soft and silky mouthfeel. Nothing overly going on at all. Cellaring really took all the sharp edges off. Soy, umami, chocolate, doughy, marshmallows.
Gets some smoke as it warms up. Not bad but prob not worth cellaring.

On nitro at World of Beer. Looks fantastic, mouthfeel isn't as creamy as I thought it'd be. Also was hoping for more espresso. Maybe it's the nitro? Not sure.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
355ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a moderate beige head, which lasts fairly well and leaves very good lacing. Milk chocolate, bittersweet espresso, a little cocoa and an alluring sweet spice scent make up the aroma. Mild herbal hops and sweet spice up front give way to roasty malt and espresso in the mid-palate. Bittersweet dark chocolate appears in the finish. This is a really enjoyable stout, with its sweet spice flavour giving it a bit of a point of difference. Plus, it’s not too expensive either.
