Very nice foreign stout, very creamy and tasty. One of the best example of stout I had. Alcohol is low.

Loved this one. Poured a very nice black with a small tan head. The aroma was chocolate, coffee toffee, malt, vanilla. Put all those in the flavor and add a nice bitter hop and you have a wonderfully tasteful brew.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
04/04/2011 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Nerissima, densa, impenetrabile, con abbondante schiuma crespa color grigio-senape, mediamente persistente. Aroma delicato di malti tostati, cioccolatoso e caffettoso. In bocca è di una eleganza notevole, dolce (cioccolato, vaniglia) quindi caffè, appena più amara sul finale. Birra splendida, di ottima beva e splendido equilibrio. Tra le migliori stout mai assaggiate.

Tap @ van Moll during Pizza Port tap take over, medium sample. Dark color, short head. Aroma of lots of roast, roasted malts, slight coffee, bit blackcurrant, but mostly pure roastiness. Slight sweet and creamy, bit roasty bitterness. Wonderful balance. Good stuff.

On tap at Uiltje, Haarlem. Pours black with a small light beige head. Aroma is sweet with milk chocolate, sweet coffee, light vanilla. Taste is smooth and sweet, truly like a liquid desert with few roasted and coffee notes and a wonderful creamy mouthfeel that almost make you want to chew it. Full body, low carbonation. Excellent.

Growler fill from the Pizza Port Ocean Beach location: Poured a dark and opaque brown color and created a thin layer of foam topping. In the nose, there is a rich and robust scent of ground coffee bean, almond, vanilla, and an aroma of cappuccino. The flavor holds a strong taste of coffee while there is room for a sweet yet bitter chocolate. Also, there is a high quality of dark roasted down malt which makes this Z man stout a real treat.
