2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle, sent from wilco (thanks Mike), listed at 8.8% ABV, pours solid black with a medium tan head. Aroma is quite chocolatey, light roast, slight metallic notes and subtle coffee. Flavour of chocolate, metallic bitter coffee, low roast, with more cocoa notes coming in toward the finish. Very thin palate for a stout (especially one at near-9%). Drinkable and nothing offensive, but misses the mark in terms of body and complexity. Muffled flavours that make it seem like this isn’t the intended flavour profile. I don’t understand the high rating on this one at all.
