4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle new arrival at Bierhandlung bb04/2017. - (First sampled at Braukunst LIve 2013). - Fresh and precisely composed Dry/Oatmeal Stout with rich textured malts and a manageable hop bitter bite with character. A Top 50/World Class Stout I can live with. - * Earthy, tobacco-leaf dryness from the roast and Cascades quench thirst in lovely harmony, making this so much more and easier to drink than a winter warmer. * Lets roast nuts, coffee grounds and bitter chocolate powder hover over a hidden Cascade ale. * Deals mainly in dry bitters and does well as coffee spice in a sweet vanilla ice cream float. * Glad to revisit.

355 ml bottle into pint. Served at room temperature. Smells of chocolate pudding, toffee, cocoa and oats. Blacker than ebony with a tan-coloured head. Surprisingly effervescent with a full body. Finish starts fruity moving to dry cocoa then dark chocolate. Very pleasant winter beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours pitch black with a thick dark brown-cappuccino head.
Lots and lots of coffe both in aroma and taste, maybe even too much as it tends to mask everything else.
Full body, medium-low carbonation, one of the most bitter stout I tried also, but very drinkable. Taste is not what I’d say exceptional, but I had to hinder myself from drink it all at once anyway.
Had a lot of expectations from this beer, most not met honestly, but it’s far from being bad.
Sure will drink again as I think this was some kind of an unlucky bottle.
