4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
11.5oz bottle pours a viscous black body without producing much head. The aromas are wonderful -- roasted chocolate malt, vanilla, and some dark fruit, as well. Flavor follows big time. Lots of sweet, roasted malt and coffee flavors. Alcohol presence is pushed just to the limits of excess, but doesn’t overpower you. Overall, just an excellent drinking experience. The nose tends toward being mostly sweet, but the flavor is very well balanced between all the components.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Pitch black pour with a tiny tan head that fades quickly with minimal lacing. Nose is coffee, roasted coffee and some more coffee along with a touch of chocolate and some vanilla. Bitter coffee and chocolate throughout with a sufficiently sweet toffee background to support the whole. Vanilla notes are a bit more present in the taste. Medium full creamy mouth with a long bitter finish. Very nice.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Very black color in nature with a small tan/mocha head and no lacing to speak of. Coffee in the aroma as well as roasted espresso beans. Tastes like a fresh brewed cup of espresso over ice. Bitter coffee up front with roast and char to follow. A warm finish and smooth on the palate. Wonderful coffee stout; the way it should be!

Makalöst fantastisk doft av kaffe, blockchoklad, kan inte bli bättre. Smaken av choklad går igenom ölen. Den är fantastisk! Även kaffe.
