3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl bottle via Lubiere, served cool in a tulip glass. Deep brown-black with a full mocha head. Surprisingly light, caramel and toffee notes, some chocolate, faint black coffee, a little grape bubble gum. Medium body, smooth effervescence. Caramel and toffee dominate with sine dark roasted maltiness behind that, a bit more than the nose; dry with moderate bitterness and a fairly nice chocolate and coffee finish. Seems a bit light, fairly well crafted.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a black color stout with a large brown foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of light black chocolate notes with some light flora coffee notes. Taste is also a nice mix between some light black chocolate with some light dry coffee notes. Bitterness is kept to a minimum with some light residual sugars. Body is about average with great carbonation. Well done for style even with limited complexity.
