3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass and a snifter.
The appearance had a nice dark brown close to a black color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. The lacing was there as it speckled the glass adequately.
The smell had a super nice blend of roasted chocolate tones to a slight coffee beans with light vanilla and anise.
The taste was very nice as it allowed a super nice sweet and roastiness to invade the tastebuds in a slight boozy pummeling of sorts.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with more of sipping aspect assigned to this brew. The carbonation finishes roasty and smooth.
Overall, this was a great RIS well worth your time and money.

Keg at the brewdog agm 2014. Dark caramel, mahogany brown with a lasting dark tan head. Rather viscous and oily. Beautiful. Aroma is wood, hickory smoked bacon and coffee beans. Palate is luscious full bodied velvety on the tongue. Flavour is smoky oak, roast choc, caramel, slightly salted caramel. Solid.

Appearance- pours with some viscosity. Dark tan, foamy (milkshake like) head. Minimal lacing. Very dark, like black coffee.
Smell- clean, spicy, malt, gingerbread.
Taste- chocolate, coffee, toasted malty sweetness.
Mouthfeel- super silky smooth and creamy (like chocolate milk). Big and full. Outstanding balance. Bitter in the middle with a pleasant, warm finish.
Overall- excellent! Another superb offering from Stone. Definitely worth purchasing. Highly recommend.

Bomber to a pint glass. Pours out like motor oil, thick and black. One finger tan head with good retention. Roasted malt, coffee, toffee notes. Full mouth feel, rich, creamy, complex... A top tier stout... Delicious!
