3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. In its category. I think this stout is very good! Rich aroma of roasted malt, caramel, dark chocolate, some minor spices used for meat like spare ribs. Taste is pretty the same which is good. Overall a very tasty bottled stout. Abv is pretty high, hidden and hence deceptive. The beer is too easy to drink for 8% abv.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thin head which settles fast. Clear black color. Roasted and sweet notes in aroma. The taste is unfortunatly not balanced enough, should be more residual sugar in my opinion. Also a bit thin body. Quite drinkable for the ABV though.

Opaque dark brown beer with a tidy pale tan head. Palate is smooth with light minerally carbonation. Smooth dark malts, no roast or bitterness but there is nice dark chocolate and decent dark malt cream. Whisper of smooth coffee. Light smooth finish. Decent stout this, smooth and very drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a small beige head, which fades rapidly, leaving no lacing. Herbal notes, port and Turkish coffee make up the aroma. Herbal hops up front give way to sweet Turkish coffee and milk chocolate in the mid-palate. Muscat and mild dark chocolate appear in the finish. This is, on the whole, a pretty decent stout.
