3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with a low tan head. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, muscovado sugar, spirit. Taste is vanilla, chocolate, muscovado sugar, grappa, bourbon, honey. Very extreme and quite boozy. Not that balanced really. Mouthfeel is very nice though, creamy and textured. I quite like this one, warts and all ;)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours utterly viscous black, motoroil; small, fast gone russet-greige head. Rich velvety alcohol & fusels’ nose, much burnt notes, nuts, Madeira. Very burnt, roasted, bitterish with only alcoholic sweetness in the background; light hint at sourness. Liqueurish, dried plums or apricots’ flavours, coffee milk. Velvety MF, faint alcoholburn, sharpish edge, well-bodied. Aromatic and inviting, but a slightly less burnt character might work miracles for the balance.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This stout is deceptively accessible and immediately seems like a superficial easy to drink beer lacking depth. On the contrary, complexity emerges and the beer continues to evolve without any change in the friendly easygoing profile established at the onset. There is some sweetness but it is well balanced and not cloying or distracting from rich flavors of chocolate, coffee, dark cherry. The balance of expression is remarkable and somewhat atypical of a stout in its lightness.
