Large, light brown head, retention is good, lace is abundent and sticky. A black brew with an amber edgeing. Nose of roast and a surprising pineyness, chocolatey and coffee as well. Body is medium, good carbonation level. Chocolate, coffee, roast, caramel and some yoo-hoo action going on. Finish is roasty and hoppy, schweeeeet! Thanks Cliff!

Bottled @ Sk8vikings blind porter/stout tasting. Beer no. 19: Reddish brown coloured. Dense brown head. Sweetness, fruits, light roast and coffee in the aroma. Flavour is sweet, light herbal, roasty, chocolatish and has light liqourice notes. Is medium bodied and has a dry mouthfeel. Is nicely roasted and bitter in the end. I had better coffee beers, but its still a good one.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted blind at Sk8vikings amazing Porter/Stout tasting - Dark brown body with red shine, light brown big bubbled head; Lots of hop , apricot and flowers (sweet ones like roses), with licorice behind, incredible balance and pleasant; Great body, well textured, soft and velvet like; Into quite long finish a bit watery, a bit thin in aroma but incredibly balanced, flowers, apricot and rose. Great balance, a bit more power without loosing the balance would make this beer perfect.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pretty nice stout, poured with a dark brown-black color with a nice thin creamy tan head. The aroma was of coffee and chocolate with some alcohol noticeable. The flavor was full of alcohol and coffee with a relative sweetness and presence of alcohol. The latter didn’t hide, but it was enjoyable. Mouthfeel was moderate: not too thick, not too thin. Bitterness was lacking, which was a plus in my book.
