Bottle @ home. Nice simply label. Strong and fine aroma. Appearance was spongy and pretty, but vanished too soon. Little bit burned dry coffee in taste and palate. Overall very enjoyable stout.

Pours black, good Rey head. Smell is bit bitter, some dark malts. Taste is rather sweet, grainy, dark and even burnt malts. Tad bitterness, but less than the scent provides. Dark Chocolate. Very Nice

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured out black. 40ºSRM.
Nose has coffee, fresh cream, wood smoke with that smoky, sour tang. Nutty. Black bread and pumpernickel very strong on the nose. Inviting and rich.
Mouthfeel is soy. Carbonation is a nice touch. Palate has charcoal, burnt toast, treacle, burnt caramel, French roast. Alcoholic palate.
Finish is alcoholic, syrupy and aggressively charcoal bitter that fades into a bourbon like sweetness.

Black beer with a thick brown head. Bitter, malty smell with a splash of citrus, and there’s a sharp citrus kick in the taste as well. That’s on top of an otherwise relatively standard stout flavour: bitter malt, some dark chocolate, a touch of burnt toffee.Complex, balanced nicely and very drinkable.
