3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of Kramer 17801. Pours a very dark brown, close to black, with a vague tint of red and a creamy, lacing, beige head. Lightly burned malt aroma. Surprisingly the body is only medium with a very soft mouthfeel, roasted and lightly burned malt accents with a very discreet whiskey touch and some oak. The bitterness is very subdued. 170607

hopdog on the hookup! Dark brown pour. tan head. Lots of bourbon, toasted malt and some chocolate on the nose. Flavor has less bourbon than i expected...but some nice raosty notes and good chocolate. Very well done and understated which is rare with the bourbon imp stouts these days.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle... This beer rocks! Pitch black ale with a large, fluffy, dark khaki head. Excellent, creamy retention. The aroma is simple and divine; milk chocolate and coconut. Well-balanced with lightly singed, mildly bitter notes that keep the beer’s sweet mocha/coconut/caramel symphony of flavors finely tuned. Medium to full-bodied and spritzy. Chocolaty, creamy-smooth finish. Cheers to hopdog for sending this world class beer to me!
