3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Pub Edward, BB February 2016... Pours a good black or maybe a very dark brown with a medium beige/tan head that leaves good lacing. A few yeast rafts/particles. Nose is of roasted malt and slight ash. Taste is lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Chocolate and mocha indeed with some ash again. Some grapiness. Body is medium, carbonation moderately high. Pretty smooth. Some alcohol but nothing bad. A good foreign extra stout but not quite as good as I thought it would be? A bit old perhaps...

Pitch black. Average sized brown head. Aroma of bourbon, coffee, dark chocolate. Very heavy and roasty with serious amount of bitterness. Alcohol can be tasted for sure. Almost up to imperial stout standards.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 16C). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: predominant dark chocolate notes with a slight burnt character. some dark fruits present (raisins, dried plums), with a present alcoholic note. APPEARANCE: black color and opaque. average to moderately large, moussy, brown head with medium-low retention. some legging formation. TASTE: roasted malt flavour dominates with an almost burnt note. The malt is of dark chocolate with a moderately sweet background. low bitterness with a medium-sweet and roasted finish. PALATE: medium to medium-low body with moderate-low carbonation. no roasted malt astringency. low alcohol warmth. OVERALL: a very nice tropical stout with a strong roasted malt presence. this sample needs a bit more body.
