3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Super smooth and silky stout with a hell of a vanilla bean and cocoa flavour. The pour is a viscous black with a gorgeous creamy beige head. The nose is sublime with a beautiful roasted malt, smooth vanilla and a dusting of cocoa. The flavour has a major roasted malt, more vanilla and a hint of licorice amongst big roasted malts and chocolate. Supremely smooth and silky palate. Just exceptional.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Pours opaque black cola brown with good light tan head and lace. Average hop aromas, malt overshadowed by a big vanilla bean scent, come oaky, choc, coffee, roasty burnt toffee notes are there. Earthen, yeast aromas are there. Body a touch thinner than expected, the roasty notes so acrid, gives the illusion of thinning. Also yeast character prominent. the vanilla continuing through over the top of the malt backbone. A touch boozy also, finishes moderately bitter, acrid, light-moderately sweet. The acrid roastiness and sweetness lingering on.

500ml. bottle. Pours a very very deep red - almost black, with a medium tan head. Aroma is of roasted coffee, vanilla, licorice and soy sauce. Taste is all that as well as roasted malt and dark chocolate. Has a long roasted aftertaste and a slight hint of booze. Full bodied and sweet in taste. Smooth and delicious. Would absolutely drink again.

Bottle. Black with a small head. Chocolate dominates with a slightly burnt aftertaste. So easy to drink considering its strength. It should carry a danger warning. Lovely.
