3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled in Valparaiso. Really enjoyed this brew. The toasted malts a some of the best I had in South America. A decent head on it. Would have liked to have tried at room temperature.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours jet-black with a firm, compact tan head that lasts and laces well. Big, thick mudcake and coffee liqueur nose with Kopiko candy, plums and charred wood, very nice. In the mouth it has notes of vanilla, heavily roasted cacao beans and milk chocolate, pasty, ashen ’black patent’ and smoke. Assertively bitter, burnt malt swallow, shows good length, a lot of burnt wood, ash and chocolate. Becomes drier and drier the more I drink. Smooth in the swallow but an acid bite upfront is very prickly and uncharacteristic, being its only detriment. Quite light in body, enough flavour here carries it well. A surprisingly good Stout, didn’t know what to make of it just from the label. Nice! (33cL, 5.2% ABV, BBE 11/10, The Beer Store Morley)

330ml bottle. Thick, oily and black with a coffee bean aroma and a frothy tan latte coloured head. Burnt malt also comes through in the aroma and the body is thinner than it appears with a burnt coffee flavour that feels good in the mouth.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown with tan head. Coffee bitterness all over, but in a good way. The flavour of coffee is complex enough to keep you entertained for a while... I finished drinking the bottle while still trying to fully understand it. Good stout.
