3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a rich deep umber black color with a finger of mocha foam. The nose is gritty earthy coffee, chocolate and some nice roasty malts and some traces of dark fruit... the palate follows the nose nicely with a good dose of carbonation to really lighten up the rich velvety mouthfeel. Nice lingering chocolate with a hint of oat coming through... dry finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a thick mocha head...nice lacing. Aroma has nice smoky espresso notes, faint dark fruit, and mild bakers chocolate. Flavor steps up the roasty espresso...light smoky notes, bitter roast and dark chocolate. Mouthfeel is medium and the finisn is chocolatey leading into lingering coffee/roasty bitterness. Well made with a near perfect amount of coffee throughout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is black with a tight mocha head. Nose is smooth roasted coffee, hint of burnt toffee, with a light vanilla aroma. Taste is more roasty and burnt than the nose, lots of coffee and gets a hint acrid and bitter. Some chocolate malts cling to the back sides of the mouth with notes of vanilla. Body is incredibly soft and creamy with extremely gentle carbonation. Really opens as it warms bringing out more malt depth and richness balancing well with coffee and helping reduce the bitterness.

Bonne stout aux arômes de torréfaction, céréales et chocolat. Je m'attendais a être plus émerveillé vu l'origine du produit, mais c'était une bonne stout réconfortante sans plus de magie. Tout de même parmi les meilleures que j'ai bu!
