3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep black with a sticky and creamy foam head, nicely done. Aroma is sweet, some roast, defined nut presence, a touch of wood, and there is a muted dark fruit scent. Tasting I got a good bit of roasted flavors, booze, walnut taste, some semi sweet syrup notes, noticeable bitterness, wood, and an anise or licorice flavor. Overall this had a good body, nice finish, easy on the palate, but I did not care for the minor licorice like flavor. I would recommend this to any stout lover, a good brew.
