3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle, 35.5cl) Black coloured hue with a brown and firm medium-sized foamy head. Roast-malty aroma with distinctive notes of coffee/mocha, dark chocolate, liquorice, leather and a touch of marzipan. Moderately roast-bitter flavour with a balanced malty and alcoholic sweetness, full but not fat-bodied with a smooth carbonation. Roasty malty and slightly leathery taste with primary notes of coffee beans and dark chocolate, accompanied by spicy notes of anise and a very subtle fruity touch; roasty bitter, moderately sweet and minimally salty finish with an assertive aftertaste of choco-coffee and marzipan. Pleasant stuff but do not differ much from other good examples of the style, thus no extraordinary highlight. 01.V.12

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pitch black with a brown head.
Aroma: coffee grounds, chocolate, brown sugar.
Taste: coffee dominates, also licorice, chocolate.
Quite full-bodied and thick.
Coffee all the way, which could be good or bad depending on what you want. Nice, but a bit more complexity would make it even better.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap @ Nest in Bethesda. A resounding meh. Wasn’t getting much out of the aroma. Kind of tinny and citrusy with a very faint hint at roastiness. Fairly dark brown with a tan head. Light on the flavor, too- not too sweet but not a lot of the roastiness, etc... that I like in a stout. Light can be good, but this just ended up coming across as a little thin and a little hard in the mouth.

Big black pour, dark brown head. Chocolate covered espresso beans in the nose and carries through to the flavor. A bit of a bitter finish after sweet coffee goodness!
