4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown - almost black. Pillowy brown head that stays awhile before giving way to a thin film. Moderate lacing.
Nose is vanilla and cocoa predominately. A bit of boozyness. Hint of pipe tobacco.
Taste is on the sweet side with a nice hop bite, especially in the aftertaste.
Medium to full body. Lively carbonation. Very tasty, delicious desert beer.

Black pour from 12oz bottle. Half went in my mouth. The other half from my wife's glass got hit off the table and landed on our white dog and yellow rug. So 20 minutes later after a lot of cleaning - it's great. Vanilla and cocoa nib aroma. Dry chocolate and milky taste. Awesome beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a deep brown to black color with a creamy medium brown head. Aroma is a wonderful mix of light roasted malts, creamy chocolate and vanilla. Flavor has a bit more on the burnt roasted malts, which overpowers the sweetness of the cocoa and vanilla in the finish. Overall a delicious stout!

4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Stout eccezionale. Praticamente nera, con una schiuma beige pannosa e persistente. Aroma non al top. All’assaggio risaltano i sentori di cioccolato, vaniglia, note leggere di malto tostato che si equilibrano perfettamente nel finale appena amaro. Corpo giusto, non troppo acquoso, cremosa e con un alcol perfetto.
