4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours jet black with thin brown head and medium carbonation. Full aroma of wood smoke, lemon, chocolate. Massive flavours of smoke, sweet chocolate, lemon, coffee, fizzy sherbet, earth and a gentle bitter finish. Sublimely smooth palate. Taste is maybe a bit too full on, one is enough. But an outstanding stout all the same.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black beer with a hint of brown at the edges. Fairly dark head. Aroma is big on chocolate with medium lactose. Nice milk chocolate character to the beer. Solid hit of roast. The taste is fairly sweet. Even more roast than in the aroma. Nice milk chocolate flavor that goes well with that silky lactose feel. Some bitterness in the finish. I don’t really know what the cypress is supposed to taste like, but it seems subtle. Very smooth feel, a touch of oil. Dries out some in the finish. Lots of flavor. Solid stout.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate, wood and fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout brew.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Got that tick at Tap House Munich. I saw they also have a Jerk Edition, but I’m a nice guy so I got the regular one. Roasty AF aroma yet floral, woody, chocolatey. The flavor kills it. Dry, ashy charcoal roast, bitter chocolate, even a touch of milky sweetness. The sweet/bitter balance is spot on. Amazeballz feel. Slick, smooth, yet dry as you old wrinkly mother and not too thick (or as Germans would say, "dick"). Other stouts should emulate this feel. I liked this a lot.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2oz bottle, thanks to alexsdad06 for sharing. Very dark brown color. Ring of brown head, decent bits of lace, a film on the glass. I get some raspberry from this, interestingly. Dark chocolate. Bit of creme. Medium to bigger body. Kind of chewy, lighter carbonation. Mild slick texture. Good creamy feel. Moderate bitter, moderate to bigger sweet. Kind of fruity, but tasty stuff. Interesting.

Bottle from Bine & Vine. Pours dark brn/blk with a slight tan smear. Aroma is chocolate milk stout. Med + body. Flavor is chocolate, lactose, and maybe some wood. Very milk stout. Nice, but not super exciting.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle at home from de Bierbrigadier, Eindhoven. Nose is roasty, light smoky. Body is pitch black, head is big, brown, creamy, average lasting, excellent lacing. Aroma is old wood, carton, smoke, chimney pipe, light hot spicy, mild coffee, milk chocolate, vanilla, dates, lemon grass. Medium sweet, heavy roasty bitter. Finish is long lasting roasty medium to heavy bitter, light alcohol warmth. Full body, oily texture, nearly flat carbonation. Excellent dessert beer, chocolate is not as dominant as I expected, very unique, great one.

Robe brune presque noire, mousse crémeuse brune. Nez assez discret sur des notes de café au lait, de caramel, le chocolat et le cacao apparaissent à l’aération, légère noté épicée et boisée. Une bouche superbe avec une attaque sur le café au lait, une bulle crémeuse, de la tension, de l’équilibre et une longueur impressionnante, finale d’une grande élégance sur une note de café légèrement torréfié.
