3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Maximus Stout 8) Bottle 330ml at home, poured into a snifter. ABV 8%
As with the Maximus 6, this one is a very dark brown and very close to be called black beer. A bit more than one finger of thick brown head, kind of frothy, collapsing quickly until it becomes a thin line on the beer’s surface, where it stays for quite some time. Sots of lacing on the glass.
Aroma of light roasted malts, pepper, coffee.
Taste has roasted malts, coffee, some chocolate notes, soem fruity notes on the finish too. Mildly bitter aftertaste, with good duration.
Medium body, good carbonation, just as much is needed. Mildly dry palate.
Overall a very good beer, I prefer it over the Stout 6.
