2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Apr. ’16. A 0.33 l bottle, as Barista Chocolate Stout. It poured a clear brown with almost no head. Sweet aroma, cocoa, sugar, tobacco. Flavor was sweet, a bit too much. Had some fine chocolate notes though. Sugary, caramel, spicy with cinnamon. Also sour, which was even more notable in the finish, too, where it was also quite alcoholic besides sticky caramel and sugary sweetness. Quite a weird beer, but I didn’t like it anyhow. Even if I think I got the bad batch, it was still way too sweet.

Aroma is chocolate, slight earthiness and sharp toffee. The flavor is strong toffee, mild coffee, chocolate, malts, slight dark fruit and an earthy/alcoholic/sourish finish.

Nice and strong. Something not so appealing in terms of the surprise, I was expecting something more spiced.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at Crafted & Cured (as "Barista Chocolate Quad"). The beer pours a clear dark brown color with a medium foamy beige head that diminishes gradually to a film. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted coffee, dark chocolate and malt. Full-bodied and drinkable with flavors of roast coffee, chocolate malt and earthy yeast. The finish is roasty with a coffee and malt aftertaste. Pretty good all around.
