3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: nearly opaque black, one fat finger of fluffy tan head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, minimal lacing. (3/5) Aroma: milky chocolate, light coffee, malted milk, lightly nutty. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Full body, moderate-low carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (4/5)
Sweet and milky chocolate leads out, but it’s backed up with enough bitterness to keep it from being cloying. Decent depth and pleasantly balanced. (14/20)

Bottle from the Strath. Pours black with a thin khaki head. leaves trace lacing in the glass. massive chocolate notes on the nose. very nicely done. lovely chocolate on the tongue as well. Has a nice amount of bitterness on the finish to keep things tidy and neat. Definitely the highlight of the trip.

On draft at the brewery. Brown pour, with a tan head. Lots of chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa powder, and fairly sweet. Not my thing, but I’m sure some people would like it.
