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.

Some honey-like sweetness as well. Medium bodied, thin but smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Finishes sweet and slightly roasty.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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!

Bottle. Pours a dark black color with a huge head that fades over time and lasts with a nice light coffee color. Taste is chocolate, coffee notes. Crisp and slight hoppy like a porter but definitely a stout at the finish. Pretty goo surprisingly but I dont get the 99 rating as well

Black, with a nice big mocha head. Aroma of roast, bitter chocolate, and some raisins. Taste roasty, medium bodied, with a sweet mid-palate, and a dry ending. Hides the alcohol really well. Nice and easy drinking.
