2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle shared with Dutchdrebus, Joes, judyvv and Ansjelaah @ weekly tasting. Opaque pitch black color, small to average sized light brown head. Aroma has malts, chocolate and -unfortunately- some "hopjesvla", which I really really dislike. Taste malts, chocolate, some bitter and again that hopjesvla. Yuk. Not my thing at all. Too bad.

A pretty decent chocolate stout. Not crazy chocolate, just that added sweetness at the end of an already powerful beer.

Delicious chocolate aroma. Flavors of milk chocolate, sweet cream and cooked oats. Mild hints of coffee. I prefer darker, more bitter chocolates, but this was still pretty good.

Gorgeous chocolate aroma, sweet and just makes me melt. Black, keggy tan head. Harsher palate, watery, fizzy carbonation. Rich roast hinting towards bitterness. Not so full. A bit transient. But nice dry old hops in the finish, a bit dusty. Disappointing after yummy aroma, but still good.

Tap. Almost pitch black color. Small brown head, stays. Looks delicious. Milk chocolate, sweet, mild roast in aroma. My nostrils want to explode. Dark chocolate, roast, minerals, limestone, watery flavor. Smells better than tastes. Nice dark chocolate bitterness in aftertaste. Would drink again.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted from bottle. Great looking beer. Pours black with a thick rocky beige head. Aroma is big time chocolate with a little coffee. Taste is obviously chocolate and roasted malt. A little sweet bit definitely not overly sweet. Really well balanced with bitterness. Slight dry finish with full body. Excellent well balanced sweet stout.
