Sweet lactose and chocolate aroma, the lactose overpowers the stout and chocolate flavours. I was expecting more of a spicy hit. Good, but not world class .

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pitch black with a large creamy dark brown head. Dusty, cocoa, vanilla, wood, brown sugar. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, medium sweet and light bitter. Sweet finish. Yeah, it’s a bit sweet and goopy and I don’t get the overall idea. It is written on the bottle but tldr. So all in all it is sweet with lots of chocolate.

Bottle from Brewdog bottle shop into tulip glass. Nice dark black with tan head, tight foam. Oily cocoa, vanilla, strong milky, liquorice, some coffee. Wow, medium to thick body in the mouth, loads of sweetness up front with lasting bitterness, the end body as you swallow is almost like swallowing marshmallow, or air in a good way? Doesn’t leave any cloying feeling, just a really pleasant lingering chocolate and cyprus almost orange taste. Very, very nice.
