4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours all black with a dark khaki, almost brown head that slowly expands into full as the beer settles. Pretty cool. Aroma is potent, and I must say unique. Raisin and alcohol stand out the most, but there is plenty of chocolate, coffee, and licorice in here as well. Moving on to the taste, it is dominated by the darker impressions. This being chocolate and coffee, while the liquor notes are still strong. This one is is full bodied with a thick, oily texture. The aftertaste is heavy and long lasting with chocolate and raisin. The alcohol content hits you quite quickly. It doesn’t hide. For what I’m looking for in this style, this might be close to perfection. I am stingy and I throw 4.5 ratings like they’re manhole covers. But this is worth it. This might be the best stout I’ve ever had.

Bottle. Rich roasted malt aroma with notes of chocolate, dark fruit and a bit of coffee. Pours black with a thin light brown head with good retention and excellent lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt flavors as well as sweet dark fruit notes to go with a rich full body and mouthfeel. Finishes incredibly smooth with chocolate and just a hint of coffee. Top notch and an excellent stout.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from beer gonzo. Hard to come by this beer in the UK. Just a casual top 50 beer of a Tuesday evening. A creamy viscous opaque black coloured pour with a lasting dark tan head. Aroma is nicely layered earthy roasted malts, Hickory smoked wood, toasted coconut shaving, treacle and some tangy berry fruits in there as well. Palate is full bodied and creamy, velvety smooth, maybe a little on the sweet side. Moderate carbonation stops it from being overtly cloying. Flavour is composed rich dark chocolate, roasted grains, treacle and bitter liquorice. Rounded sweet finish with some acrid roasted notes. Very enjoyable.
