3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Bottle] Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is huge, with lots of anise, vanilla, and something a little strange that I can’t peg. Too sweet smelling, and that unidentifiable aroma isn’t great. Taste is anise again, vinous notes, and then bitter char in the finish. Good, thick mouthfeel with a long finish. Overall, a little too heavy on the char, but a decent beer otherwise.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Quite much pitch black colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma is liquorice, chocolate, burnt sugar, some toffee and fudge along with some slight spicy notes and alcohol sweetness too. Flavour is sweet burnt sugary with some liquorice, chocolate, mild toasted notes as well as some fudge and very sweet malts and a quite sharp alcoholic sweet bite to it. Quite nice, but I’d prefer this one if it was just a slight bit less sweet...

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2016 On tap at eleszto. Very dark brown colour good lightbrown microfoam. Nose is loads of molasses light coffee. Omg. Taste is medium high sweetness, low bitterness. Definitive booze. Smooth mouthfeel. Like a cafe con leche as my mother would drink it. Would say its a sweet stout but i love those. Just a little bit too sweet.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very sweet and dry and a bit difficult to drink. Lots of dark chocolate with vanilla, liquorice and coffee. Intensely full of chocolate flavour. Perhaps a bit too intense as it needs to be sipped slowly. But good to push the boundaries.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Preta, com boa formação de espuma, aroma de malte torrado, caramelo, chocolate, café. Sabor bem doce, torrado, final bem amargo, seco. Bom corpo, meio oleosa. Não é ruim, mas o resultado final é um pouco desorganizado e desbalanceado, diminuindo a drinkabilidade.
