3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Pours black in color with a tan head. Roasted coffee, dark chocolatey notes, sweetish syrup and
some wooden notes in aroma. Quite smooth even if sligthly thick mouthfeel and feels a bit raw. Coffee
liqour, burnt wood, roasted malty notes in taste. A bit harsh though on the whole. Sweet sugary notes, some coffee
and wood in finish.

Pours out super dark almost black leaving dark tan head. Aroma is of a roasted malt and coco. Taste is of a coffee and leaving almost a tangy aftertaste. Decent brew

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, cream and some berries. Flavour of roasted malts, red berries, some herbal bitterness and yeast. Some honey-like sweetness as well. Medium bodied, thin but smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Finishes sweet and slightly roasty.

330mL can poured into a 12oz snifter. Very abundant tropical fruit flavors jump out of this and hit the nose immediately. Underneath that, there’s some caramel and lactose nose with a very mellow smokiness. It’s a black-dark opaque beer with, initially a thick foamy head, which sticks around for a while, but ultimately reduces to literally nothing - needless to say, this beer doesn’t lace. It’s medium-heavy on the sweetness with a very light hop-like bitterness. Oranges and cream comes to mind on the tongue. There’s very little to no carbonation on this light bodied beer (relative to other heavy stouts, I guess) which is smooth, creamy, and very clean; although it does finish with a bit of milk chocolate and a very mellow hop bittering.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Couleur noir avec un mince col brun résistant. Nez intense de malt grillé,pain grillé,café. En bouche un mélange un peu amère de malt grillé pain grillé café un peu de chocolat et de resine. Une stout mis complexe qui se boit bien, mais elle n’est pas dans mes top, un peu surévalué!

Whoa, that’s dark. Black with creamy tan head. Chocolaty aroma with some mild coffee undertones. Roasty and light bodied with hints of coffee and chocolate.

Another big thank you from whichever one of you fellows gave me this beer...truly the beer clouds my judgement! It pours a black color with a hint of red in the light. The head was massive with tan and orange being the predominant colors. The aroma was there, but was pretty weak with faint chocolates, plastic, cocoa beans and caramel/vanilla. The flavor is very malty though somewhat mild bodied. It has a very watery texture with little carbonation and hints of chocolate. This was lacking something...particularly mouthfeel if i had to really choose!

Black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and alcohol. Flavor is more of the same. Slightly bitter finish. Thinnish body for a stout. A nice beer and an excellent value, but somewhat overrated.

Bottle. Pours dark with a nice thick head. If someone asked me what kind of stout this was I would have said smoked. The flavors are dominated by charcoal and charred wood. It did not seem very complex but was definatly tasty and unexpected.
