4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A pitch black beer with a small brown head. Intense alcoholic aroma with dark chocolate, toasted coffee, molasses and nuts. Taste is bitter with a strong finish. Reminds me a lot of dark chocolate. Robust and complex. Aftertaste slightly alcoholic, but well balanced considering its high ABV.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (375 ml). Best before 07/12/15, so probably around 4 years old.
Appearance: Pitch black with a medium easy to revive brown head and good lacing.
Aroma: It’s quite boozy but still a lot less than expected. Molasses, figs, plums, roasted malts, fainted coffee, vegetal notes and chocolate.
Taste: Quite sweet and dried fruits forward with molasses, vegetal coffee notes but without much coffee, roasted malts and of course alcohol (boozy but not burning).
Palate: Full body. Moderate carbonation. Syrupy mouthfeel. Warming finish. Lingering dried fruits presence.
Overall: Decent stout and not too boozy considering the abv. Flavorful, but not super complex and certainly not very cohesive.
