3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Visual: Pours pitch black with virtually not head, fine ringed retention, a few micro bubbles popping sporadically at the surface.
Nose: marshmallow, vanilla, mocha - all subtle. (lvl-4)-pungency
Attack: slick-thick, soft crisp, oily
Mid-palate: long (lvl-7)-sweetness, tangy alcohol detection, milky CO2, thick caramel barley malt, vanilla
Finish: woody bitter roast, lingering bitter hops with roasted coffee
Summary: It goes down very smooth and it’s gone with each sip before you know it. The vanilla-roasted coffee flavours are the ’like’-factors in this one. Recommended for imp stout lovers. I wished for more spice/vanilla in the mids to push it to an A-rating.
