330 ml bottle BB Dec 31st 2014, shared by Werckmeister, thanks!
Black body, with a medium, dense, coffee colored head.
Aroma is quite sweet, with dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, cocoa, wood.
Tastes of smooth coffee, cocoa, vanilla, wood, some dark fruits.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes smooth, roasty, quite dry, with coffee, wood, cocoa, milk chocolate.

Tasty. Drinks very smooth, alcohol is completely hidden. The nose is a bit too sweet for me, but the taste is greatly balanced, cocoa is very well integrated. Great, comfortable Stout.

330ml bottle at home shared with Saeglopur, from trade with Nische, many thanks. BB 12/2014. black color, small dark coffee-colored head. smells of malty roast, ash, bitter chocolate, peat, spices. overall nice smell, peat notes a bit too present though. full body, soft carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. tastes of ash, coffee, bitter chocolate, light berry notes, milky / creamy, hints of sweetness, spices, some wood, lightly sour. finishes with very nice notes of creamy bitter chocolate and of light ash and nice roast notes. not so crazy about the smell, but the taste and especially the finish is very nice, just a tad bit medical though.

330 ml bottle. Rating this one mainly for the tick. Unfortunately my bottle leaked and it was rather oxidized when I drank it. It had a glorious aroma, but it won’t be fair to judge it in these conditions. 3.8 as it’s the current average score and I don’t want to change anything.

Bouteille 33cl de Malt Attacks, BB 31/12/2014. Brune foncée, presque noire, col épais crémeux moka laissant un léger doré au verre. Arôme met de suite l’accent sur les notes douces du lactose. Ces dernières sont ponctuées par le bouquet distinct, mais timide, du cèdre qui apporte des effluves épicées et boisées. Ayant Cigar City comme exemple, le cèdre reste plus mitigé dans son usage. La malt chocolaté et le cacao arrivent à percer en rétro. Palais est profond au niveau malté avec un fini sec au palais attirant l’attention sur l’effet boisé du cèdre. Ce dernier reste présent tout en étant un peu plus discret dans sa complexité. On retrouve un fini épicé lié au boisé typique du cèdre. Le chocolat est également présent avec une petite note amer sur la fin. Le lactose reste également bien présent ajoutant un fini adouci et typique, ce dernier se mariant bien au côté plus sec du cèdre.

Bottle from BeerRitz, Leeds. An inky black beer that pours with a thin tan head. It has a very rich chocolate and cherry flavour, vanilla notes and a sweet and tart fruity, slight roasted chocolate finish.
