4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
650 ml bottle from bev4less. Pours a murky dark brown color with a medium khaki head head that has fair retention. The aroma is strong with coffee, chocolate, hazelnut and mocha. The taste is similar to the aroma with the hazelnut really standing out. The coffees are similarly rich and strong and there is a bitter walnut hop presence. Most surprising to me is a lack of any real sweetness, just lots of roasted goodness. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes long and dry with lingering coffee grounds. Overall: First rate stout, very tasty. This is only my second beer from this brewery and so far i have been impressed by them.

(En fût au Surfside Taproom): Le nez tout en décadence, noisettes grasses et chocolat noir et son astringence. En bouche c’est confortable sans être moelleux avec une bonne amertume torréfiée.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a deep dark brown color with a coffee malt aroma. Taste is full flavored with a coffee and roasted malt flavor. The malt tastes slightly overcooked, leaving a burnt aftertaste. Overall a decent beer that could be more flavorful if the recipe was tweaked a little.

Bottle @ Beer Temple, generously shared by Remco & Denise, thanks! Black color, oily. Aroma’s: strong vanilla at first, with Nutella, sweetness. Retronasal there more hazelnut, roasted malts, some red fruit. Flavor is moderate sweet & moderate bitter, hazelnuts. Light bodied, but not thin. Long, rather bitter finish. Nice!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pitch black a hint of ruby highlight, two-finger dense creamy brown head that dissipated quickly and left nice lace. Aromas of strong hazelnut coffee, and roasted malts, maybe a touch of chocolate poking through the coffee.
Strong coffee bitterness up front, accompanied by ample, almost overpowering, hazelnut. Light to medium body, minimal carbonation, thin mouthfeel and a bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Syrup-thick and ebony in the glass, with a dense head of caramel-colored bubbles. Aroma is intense with coffee beans, hazelnuts, vanilla and a bit of toasted sourdough. The flavor is more subdued and far more bitter, with a tangy chocolate twang, mild nuttiness and a finish like day-old coffee. Medium-light body; mild fizz. It avoids tasting artificial, as most hazelnut coffees are wont to do. Good stuff.
