A nice chocolate stout, I found it to be mild in the aroma and a bit watery in body but you can get the hints of chocolate milk.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The beer has a perfect stout appearance. The color is black to the eye and ruby red in the light. The beer is so dark, that I can’t tell wether it is clear or cloudy. The beer pours a nice layer of soft foam, with the color of roasted almonds. The smell of the beer is mild. There is a little aroma of chocolate and roasted barley. There could be more roast and smoke. It is a little mild now. It misses some depth. The however compensates for the mild smell. There is a rich chocolate flavor, and lovely touches of roasted barley, coffee and some oakwood and smoke. The rich toasty bitterness with the sweet chocolate is make a lovely combination. The palate is nice. Milky and soft. A little more creaminess would have been nice. Beers like this make me remember how much I love stout. I wish more Dutch brewers would make beers like this. Beautiful.

From tap. POurs dark brown to black, small brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate. Lingering rich malt flavoured, coffee and chocolate notes. Lingering bitterness swept through the rich malt base into a medium, yet slight sweet finish.

Keg. Pours dark brown/black with tiny mocha head. Aroma of chocolate milk, oats and coffee. Taste is sweet chocolate milk with light filter coffee style bitterness to finish. Really enjoyed this - would be even better if it was a bit thicker.
