Near black with brown head. Roast malt, coffee, chocolate and black plum hit the nose. Cr eamy texture. Taste is heavy on the coffee and chocolate. Sweetens more as the servong temperature goes up.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
From a bottle. Pours black with a brown head that dissipates to a thin layer. Aromas of molasses, dark chocolate, coffee, anise, vanilla, and dark fruit. Flavors are chocolate, coffee, molasses, vanilla, raisin, plum and anise. Finishes with dark chocolate, nuts and burnt toast. Significant booziness. Creamy mouthfeel. This is a big beer loaded with lots of flavor profiles. Very complex. Nothing short of fabulous.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. A pitch black color with a big, dense brownish head. The aroma is impressive: it offers abundant dark maltiness with a hint of balancing hoppiness. Nuances include at least licorice, anise, rye pudding, dark chocolate and coffee – fairly malt-driven. Taste is very roasty with hop bitterness rising toward finish. Initially also some sweetness but roasted malts dominate. Prominent dark malt flavours are strong; they are accompanied by vanilla and some resinous hop notes. It does not get much richer than this. The palate is wonderfully rich, full and smooth. The balance is excellent despite the variety and strength of the taste. Simply excellent, from start to finish that takes delightfully long in coming.

Keg at Brewdog Birmingham. Inky, silky, jet black. First sip was when the beer was too cool. That were bad thing to do. So I warm glass, by using hand what warm. Then when warm it, beer tasty much better. Delicious it were. In fact.

Stone is a great brewery! But all I’ve had from them is crazy hop explosions! This... Is kind of the same.... But different.... Stouty bitter beery intensity! Stone lives up to the gargoyle!

Very good stout. Nice and creamy which is my favorite. Chocolatey and coffeey. It’s got a little bitter hops to the taste though which is kinda weird.

Inconfondibile, retrogusto di caffè tostato e liquirizia. Ottima birra da dopocena. Da provare
