4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
minimal tan head, dark brown to black body. a very tempting aroma for a coffee appreciator such as myself. And the bitter is unrivaled among stouts. I’ve not had a stout this well balanced, and with such a pleasant hoppiness in a while. I had the opportunity to visit this brewery this summer, and I was delighted to find their winter seasonal available at my local beer store when after I returned to the US. Yippee!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours out looking like soda with an opaque dark maroon body and a thin tan head. Aromas are fruits and dark chocolate, flavors fairly similar. Actually drinking it adds plenty of roasted flavor. Perfect light and frothy mouthfeel. Very impressive stuff!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours fairly dark, not completely black though. Aroma of dark malts, ash and coffee.
Taste is coffee and a barrage of the drier dark malt taste. Expected it to be a bit more creamy than it was.
Bottle from Bier-deluxe.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours almost pitch black with nice head. Aroma: beautiful aroma of fresh coffee beans and roasted malt. Taste: very well balanced bitterness and pleasant dark roasted malt body. Absolutely no coffee sourness. Fantastic stout also for the summer, when you do not necessarily need a 10% ABV Russian Imperial Stout.
