4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is roasted, malty and spicy. The taste takes you on a ride with milk chocolate, vanilla, malts and burned coconuts. A little salty. Light and dry in the finish. This stout takes you on a boat trip through the archipelago of the Caribia, making stops on all the small islands where you try out the local flavors from cocoa, salt water and inhaling burned Cypress wood and vanilla. Very pleasant.
