4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle, brand new to Omaha.
Pours a deep black, with only the slightest hints of ruby peeking through the edges. The head peeks at a quarter of an inch, and fades quickly to a wispy swirling head, leaving behind a thin webbing of lace.
Smell; the espresso really comes through right away. Very roasty, alomst charred coffee at first, but then fades a little to some chocolate and molasses.
Taste; as with the aroma the coffee hits right away, and for a litle while it’s hard to pick out the other flavors. As it warms though the coffee fades just enough to get some chocolate, molasses and raisins. The finish is all bitter dark roasted malts and coffee beans.
Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with a light smooth carbonation, and the drinkability is good.

Casi negra, casi opaca. Bonita espuma ocre consistente y duradera. Intenso aroma café recién molido. Cremosa entrada en boca, con buen punto de gas. Compleja en el sabor, con notas ácidas frutales, vainilla, café y chocolate y amargor notable. Muy sabrosa. Redonda.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black with a medium brown head, nice lacing. Loads and loads of coffee and chocolate in the aroma, some toffee and dried fruit and cookies. Taste is assertively roasty bitter and acidic, with medium sweetness slightly behind. Medium body and carbonation, texture resembles coffee, somewhat sticky. Lip smacking goodness!

Bottle in wine glass. Pours medium plus dark brown with a two finger head. Aroma has coffee for sure and the taste is just simple roasted stout with hints of vanillaish toffee coffee. Overrated but good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml. Bottle @home. Pours black with tiny brown head. Aromas of coffee, dark chocolate, dryed fruits, caramel and notes of vanilla.
Body has a high carbonation with a thin texture. Taste of coffee, caramel, roasted malt, kind of spicy in a way and aftertaste has a medium bitterness. Too weak body in my opinion.
