3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. The pour was a thick dark black with an average sized (1-2 finger) frothy light brown head that was mostly diminishing with just a little residue left to cling to the glass thus producing some really excellent lacing.
The aroma had a strong scent of a burnt chocolate malt and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of toffee, dark chocolate, coffee, caramel and lactose.
The taste was a nice malty sweet and very smooth with a note of toffee and chocolate in the beginning and finished with a sweet chocolate-coffee flavor that had a milky caramel presence at the end. The flavor lasted an average duration after the swallow which was just long enough for the milky chocolate-coffee flavor to settle in.
Mouthfeel was somewhere between medium and full in body with a nice creamy texture and a soft carbonation.
Overall a nice smooth creamy tasting Brew with a great drinkability.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours black with a tiny tan head. Taste roasted malt, chocolate, coffee. I thought this wasn't very good. I would not drink this again.

Jet black pour w/ no head or lacing. Bad bottle? Aroma is way too light for a stout - tiny hint of chocolate. The taste is not nearly sweet enough to pull this off - actually slightly bitter. Not a fan!

Very deep and malted aroma, exactly what is expected of a stout, very dark, almost black appearance. A roasted taste with a few sweet notes as well, almost hints of coffee and chocolate, very drinkable and one I’ll certainly buy again.

aromas of coffee and dark chocolate, thick foamy head, very dark brown body, tastes medium sweetness, heavy cloying sweetness, very bitter, very bloody nice! like drinking dark chocolate leaves a nice tang around the mouth, full body, oily feel, soft carbonation, lovely velvety aftertaste. a winner! bottle from beers of europe.

Pours black with thin brown head. Aromas of black chocolate, roasted malt, sugar, coffee, alcohol. Thinner than expected, less sweet and more bitter too. It’s quite boozy in the finish.

Pours a dark brown black. Lacking had retention. Body and palate are good, but lacking in flavor. Ok beer.

Dark brown pour with small tan head. Aroma of malts and milk chocolate. Taste of roasted malts, milk chocolate and lactose. Medium bodied and nice carbonation. Simple beer but very enjoyable that goes down way to fast. Good beer.

Two words: balsamic vinegar... on the swallow and after, long after. This could be really good with Mediterranean or Indian food.
