Pours black as the moonless midnight sky with a head of reddish brown that has subtle lacings. The nose is chocolate with rich roasted coffee notes. The amazing flavor has chocolate, coffee, burnt caramelized malt. The full body finishes slightly dry with a hint of citrus and resin.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cant believe I’d not rated this juan ! Picked up at Systembolaget Malmo and chuged on the train back to CPH, 21/08/15.
Black with a decent dirty tan head that retains well.
Nose is rich roast, chocolate, spice, bitter fruit, charring notes, burnt toffee.
Taste comprises chocolate, spice, toffee, chocolate biscuit.
Full bodied, fine carbonation, light boost in a warming close.
Decent impy but another of the old guard that I don’t feel warrants the 4+ score in this day and age.

Flaska. Skön go doft av choklad , läder och nötter. Smaken bra balanserad där choklad möts med lite rostade toner med nöt känsla. En fin öl att sitta och långsamt sippa på då man löser världsproblem!

Large nougat colored and creamy foam is the perfect approach to one of the highly acclaimed beers from the award winning brewery Great Divide. Flowered hop, hard toasted and roasted malt, caramel and coffee are the main themes of the flavoring. In the taste unite these flavors in a warm and very elegant stout. Its little burnt character gives a light smoky sensation with caramel and coffee fills the mouth with delicate taste. It is soft and tasty and reminiscent in many ways of a stout that has been barrel aged, but it’s just not the case with this. Towards the end explodes a cluster bomb of hops in the mouth, and personally, I really like hoppy stouts, although it abstracts a bit from the type of accuracy. It is certainly one of the world’s best stout.
