3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Black beer with a strong light brown head. The aroma is lightly roasted with a hint of malt, and the flavour is gently bitter with quite a high degree of roasted and burnt ness. Overall a nice stout but not strong enough for espresso.

Dark-chocolate brown, rich light-brown fine head, fades moderately quickly to textured film and ring. Aroma is a burnt two-day-old coffee, with hint of chocolate and raw sugar cane, touch of soy sauce, some toffee. Creamy mouthfeel, very fine carbonation, velvet. Flavor is a chocolate-mocha punch, bit of green tea, slightly hot on the exhale, balanced and nicely infuse flavors. Highlight is the creamy body and mochachino.

Not a bad stout at all. Better in bottle, somewhat bitter if poured hard to make head. Head not worth the pour. That said, not too impressed off the bat but while eating food it went down smooth and easy, was swigging it as if it were a bud light, though I enjoyed my ice water more.

Incredible amount of strong dark coffee with sweet cocoa powder, and light grassy hops. Regular mouth feel, and carb. The finish is super roasty, with another incredible amount of cold coffee with a hint of cocoa sweetness. A superb stout.
