4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours Dark and black and thick with a thin dark tan head like Beer Geek Breakfast. Has dates, and Christmas cake nose. Soy sauce flavour on the back /top of my mouth. Big huge malts with dark chocolate and milk chocolate tones. Low roast coffee flavours, vanilla and dates, plums. multiple complexity with all kinds of delicious goodness..alcohol is so masked by the cornucopia of flavours that it is not apparent until you try and stand. Has wonderful earthy nature difficult to nail down. a fantastic beer definitely a competitor or "Evil Twin" to it’s MIkkeller counterpart. Simply delicious. Killer Stout.

Pours pitch black with a thick, foamy brown head. Smells of ripe dark fruits, light roasted malts, burnt sugar, some coffee. Very good rich taste of roasted malts, lots of coffee and chocolate, ripe fruits again. Full bodied, thick creamy mouthfeel. Some milky sweetness well balanced by the final bitterness. Finishes with a strong coffee aftertaste. Excellent.

Aroma is chocolate, mocha, coffee, and sweet pastry. Taste is a deep malt profile with flavors similar to the aromas. The sweet chocolate character is dominant here. Not much hop character observed. Body is jet black with a brown bubbly head that retains fairly.
