3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, courtesy of allesmetkaas, @ Rampkrot tasting. Pours a pitch black beer with a small layer of beige head on top. Aroma of wood, oak, molasses, dark burnt caramel, light boozy. Flavour is sweet, alcholic and slightly unbalanced. Thick, sugary mouthfeel and a medium long, sweet finish. Not too complex, yet quite good.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2013 Thx to allesmetkaas @ Rampkrot Whale tasting – 65 cl. Bottle sampled. Black with little mocha head. Sweet with a reasonable amount of roast, coffee, light liquorish, chocolate, touch dark fruits and dash of booze. Slightly viscous, touch less carb. Certainly enjoyable.

Rich and roasty on the palate with some nice chocolate sweetness. There's also a medicinal character there as well but it's really mild. The nose is similar and the alcohol is present but it doesn't feel like nearly 12%.

coffee brew, expresso with cream and sugar and a finish that develops a bit of Lea and Perrins Worsct sauce ie apricot and plum. Hops shoot thru the palate and the head is formidable with a waft of bourbon and pepper.

Rich dark brown/black color; Heavy slightly creamy body; Aroma of toasted malt, oak, hops, some vanilla, & coffee; Flavor of roasted sweet malt, caramel, hops, espresso, dark fruit (notably prunes & dates), and bittersweet chocolate; Slight alcohol at the finish; Nicely balanced & complex; Overall, quite hoppy - great stout!

Serving: 22 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a thick, inky black with a dark brown head. The nose is malty with lots of roasted malt notes, a slight dark fruitiness, licorice, and a hint of coffee. The flavor is big and boozy with lots of obvious alcohol. The fruit and licorice notes seem to be at odds with the burnt malt notes. Instead of working together, it definitely takes something away from the enjoyment. Thick and rich on the tongue with an oily mouthfeel that lingers. This one didn’t blow me away.

Split bomber from condo beer closet with SHERM1016. This beer is missing its’ hop nose and taste....bottled two yrs ago. Still a tasty stout with lots of licorice, chocolate and coffee flavors....will have to find / try a fresh one for contrast.
