3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home in London. Many thanks to Tomer for the trade! Pours deep brown with a sturdy, dark beige foam head. Some greasy, meaty dark malts in the nose, bit of tangy cocoa, moderate roast and the bottom of a coffee pot. Light to medium sweet flavor with plenty of ashy roasted malts, chocolate, faint licorice, dark malts, well toasted sugars, light bitter burnt wood and earth. Light to medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Light sweetness to finish, some flinty dark malts, pleasant bittersweet cocoa, light roast, ash, mellow tobacco, low bitterness. Very drinkable stout. There are actually some really rewarding layers to this beer. Nice work!

An impressive stout.

11.2 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Poured a dark brown almost black. Whisp of head. Smell of coffee, toasted nuts and chocolate. Flavor was toasted almond, chocolate and accents of espresso. Mouthfeel was smooth and incredibly.dry. felt like a paper towel was stuck to my tongue.
Overall pretty decent

Bottled on 16.7.2013. Nose of heavy coffee and rich dark chocolate, occasionally fruity bursts of plum, a smooth and sultry appetizer! Pours deep dark brown-black with a dark brown head. Taste very, very dry, some light burned notes under waves of lovely, gentle dark roast; there’s some chocolate and medium-heavy coffee, but the whole thing is utterly velveteen and huggable. Low bitterness, clean, soft full body with low carbonation. This is the best of their three I’ve had, by far.

0.33L bottle, small head that dissapears very quickly. uniform opaque black colour, aroma of charred wood, dark chocolate and whiffs of smoke, charred wood dominates the flavour with hints of dried fruits and dark bread, almost completely dry. feels quite fat and silky, long bitter aftertaste. Quite impressive.

Courtesy of DSG, thanks Barak!!!
The beer in the glass is opaque black with a beautiful brown and creamy head. The smell is sour malty, bitter, with strong coffee-notes. The beer starts very malty, creamy, mild, with strong notes of roasted coffe. The center part is considerably milder and the sourness comes through a little better, coupled with a good yeast aroma. Goes in a roasted malty finish, slightly tart, with strong aromas of coffee and chocolate!
