3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Weak and unsustainable foam on this stout, but since the alcohol exceeds 11% it can not be surprised. The aroma is dominated by peat smoke and oak. Taste wise it is full of dark chocolate, coffee and a little hazelnut. Palate is very complex and this stouts subtext is also inviting fruity flavor of plums, fresh grapes and then again a delicate flavor of chocolate cake (Brownie). It tastes not only of the good taste of dark chocolate, but rather a mixture of chocolate and bread, which my best flavor image must be Brownie. It is brewed with five varieties of malts and the barley malt must definitely be the malt type contributing to redolent of chocolate cake because it also has a lot of rye bread character. The finish offers delicate vanilla and sweet Bourbon Whiskey. It is a stout which absolutely should be enjoyed at room temperature, everything else would be a shame. It is a thick, oily and very delicious stout which should be enjoyed over a long time.

12oz bottle pours a thick black color without any head. Harsh bourbon at first, but quickly smooths out with some time to breath. Nice molasses and hop balance.
