Clear dark brown beer. Crisp and dry palate, turns frothy. Semi sweet chocolate malt dominates with a minerally dry finish and a carbonated bite. Chocolatey and crisp! A bit different!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 33cl, 8.4% ABV. A nice-looking beer with a head that should be bigger. The body is sure black, and the head is beige and lasting, but as mentioned, a bit small. Coffee, burnt malt, licorice and a sweetness in the aroma. Sweet flavor with coffee also playing a major part, followed by notes of licorice, burnt malt, a slight buttery touch and a hint of hoppy bitterness. The finish is quite long, with sweetness, coffee and licorice. Full body. I like my stouts drier, but it is sure nice. The little buttery flavor are also something I would like to have removed.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, alc. 8.4% (BB 06/2005)
Opaque black, huge cloudy brown head. Aroma has some sweetness, lots of roast, coffee beans and chocolate with mild hops added. Medium to full-bodied. Full of malts and chocolate, hints of sugar, nicely hopped. Bitterish roasted aftertaste with some burning alcohol, which makes this a bit unbalanced. Some yeast in the bottle. Excellent stout.

4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
I’ve been looking forward to this one for a while, and it’s everything I could have hoped for! Black body with healthy beige head. Aroma is complex and malty -- dark chocolate, toffee, coffee, and roasty. Flavor is even better -- chocolate, coffee, ginger, roastiness, and slight alcohol (an insufficient reminder of its 9% abv). Very creamy and stays nicely on the tongue. Definitely worth having as a milestone beer (my 500th beer rated here) -- it ties my highest rating overall.
