4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours deep brown with an exceptional dark tan head. Full nose of graham crackers and chocolate. The flavor has a smooth marshmallow in addition to the influences in the nose, and surprisingly doesn’t go to sticky or cloying. Medium full mouthfeel and of course, a fair amount of sweetness.

Thanks Vanja, Iznogud & Co.! Almost black body, dark head. Nothing too remarkable, typically nice. I’ve heard nothing but superlatives about this one from those in the Croatian crew who’ve tried it, but even that didn’t prepare me for the sublime, wonderful, beautiful cocoa/milk chocolate aroma that wafted from the glass... The same thankfully continued into the taste, only buried in layers of caramel. Not much hops, but this didn’t need hops. Wow, wow wow wow! Beer of the day and the competition was awesome!
Note: City of origin was apparently San José so this batch was brewed at Hermitage I guess.

Looks like coke in a glass. Smells of treacle vanilla and prunes. Taste corresponds with the smell with the addition of a coffee taste. Slightly sweet, but has a light fizz that cuts through the sweetness. Nice stout. (K)
