Pours a viscous, opaque black leaving a slight brown head that dissipates quickly. Dark fruit, coffee and bitter dark chocolate on nose. Taste of coffee, dark roast malt, bitter hops, bitter cacao, and slight hint of sourness. Overall an incredible beer that gives you more as it warns up.

65cl bottle. Amazing one. Hoppy, coffee, cacao aromas. Quite bitter, smooth, creamy texture. Pours very dark, with nice vanishing tan head (maybe fades away too fast). Full bodied, soft carbonation. Taste is coffee, hoppy, some vanilla and caramel. Really well balanced and integrated flavours.

22 oz. bottle. Served in a snifter. Pours a jet black with a tan head. Quite literally, it looks like motor oil. Aromas of coffee and alcohol. Thick mouthfeel. Very forward roasted malt flavors. Hop presence is evident but not overpowering. Smooth finish. This is a beautiful Stout.
