3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small tan head, fed by finely carbonated red-shot, if nearly pitch-black beer. Black, but sweetened chocolate, chocolated coffee, toffee, treacle, caramel. All of them, and then some. SMELLS viscous. Sweet with ever so slightly bitterish roasted notes. Bourbon, vanilla, chocolate icecream topping. Backthroat alcoholheat, which is difficultly explainable by the 6.5 % ABV. Warming up, vlaai, if you understand the reference. Medium bodied, quite slick, slight viscosity. Light alcoholburn. Sweet. Tad too sweet, for my preferences. Still, if you like your portion of treacle...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pitch black with light tan head. Notes of coffee, chocolate, vanilla and biscuit. Flavor is sweet - too sweet for me; a bit like milk chocolate. A little thin for a stout. Lively carbonation. Pretty good, but not a favorite for me.

Bottle from a recent trade. Really sweet aroma reminds me of the marshmallows and Nutella is a great descriptor. Flavor is a little roasty woody and earthy. Finish is a little sweet. Very interesting stout.
