Bottle, 0.33l, shared with colleagues. Clear nearly black color with small creamy light brown head and nice lacing. Aroma of heavy roasted malt, coffee, caramel, chocolate and dried fruits. Taste starts with rich and sweet malt, follows by chocolate, herbs and liquorice, mouthfeel is warming, alcohol is well hidden, while finish is moderate bitter. Full body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Oh yes, this one’s excellent...

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle pours with a mahogany colored body that supports a thin tan head. The aroma offers up dry chocolate chip cookie mix, dark roasted coffee, chicory and black licorice. The taste is spicy with chicory and black licorice and then heading quickly into chocolate and dark roasted coffee and dark roasted malts. The chocolate comes forward some into the finish. Pretty nice stout.
