Very very good beer. Extremely malty with a creamy taste to it. Not as thick as I would’ve expected and doesn’t hide the alcohol too well. Great beer though, very very tasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a rich blackish burnt umber with a thin mocha settled head that disappears quickly. Aromas are roasted malts and milk chocolate and black tea. On the palate comes a lot of sweet chocolate notes, licorice and some burnt coffee and bittersweetness on the finish.

Bottle with Brett. Pours a pitch black with zero head and lacing. Aromas and flavor were milk chocolate, light coffee, and light malts. This beer was sweet up front but had a moderately bitter finish from the hops. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Close to black in appearance with some slight red tint along the edges. Frothy tan head. Aroma and flavor are both sweet and roasty. Some notes of oak chips and cream throughout. A nice solid sweet stout, not overbearing or cloying.

Nothing too special about this one. Good palate, smooth and creamy. I get the dark chocolate and roasted malts, just seemed a little weak.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Ouch, it contains lactose sugar, my stummic won’t like this one.... well, anyway, it pours quite dark, black in glass, tanned head. Smells of oats, roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Medium sweet, maybe even heavy sweet, something in between i guess. Some coffee and a milk flavor i suspect comes from the added lactose. Heavy bitter, some coffee and hops. Sadly i have to let half the bottle go in the sink. It’s not the beer; it’s me :)
