4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, bought at Vinens Verden, Odense. Pours fat oil black with a fine, large, creamy, cappucino head. Sweetish aroma actually, some chocolate and vanilla. Some slight coconut notes as well. Then a lot of coffee and roasted malts. Very nice. Lowish carbonation, nice mouthfeel. Flavour is incredibly well-balanced, lots of nice dark chocolate, some coffee and some definite bitterness. This is a world-class stout. Not extreme in any way, this is just perfect in balance. Just the way I like it.
