4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz bottle. Pour is not as dark as one would imagine. Opaque black with brown tints. Head is rather thin. Heavy aromas of cocoa, bakers chocolate and roast everything, Malts, nuts, coffee, caramel. Finish is a little dry with slight bitterness. 9.7%abv is well balanced with all the flavors of this full bodied beer. Not much to complain about or improve on. Wish I had picked up a second one.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with minimal tan head. Aromas are heavy roast, baker’s chocolate. Flavors follow similarly. Not much sweetness to this one, it’s fairly dry. Full of roast, with a dry coffee-like finish, it’s good for the style. Alcohol is very well hidden.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Deep stouty brownish-black pour, opaque with a massive espresso colored froth, ridiculous retention and lace. Nose is dark roasted barley, coffee, cocoa, hazelnuts, malts. Mouth is big and creamy, bittersweet, coffee, roast, nutty, bakers chocolate, some soot near the finish. Goes down dangerously easy for a 9.7%. Woof.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque black color, brown head, lace cobwebs. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and dark dried fruit. Taste is toasted malt that grows substantially through the swallow, then backs off a little as it adds chocolate and mild bittering in a very long finish. Huge body, hides the alcohol well enough. A keeper. Recommended.

Tap at Akkurats 20th anniversary. Dark mahogany brown with white head. Roasted aroma with dark chocolate, coffee and a little bit of char. Pretty silky coffee taste with roasted malt, coffee, prunes and a hint of soy sauce. Quite light and a little watery with a bitter coffee finish.

Donkere stout met kleine schuimkraag. Mooie donkere kleur met weinig koolzuur. Hint van chocolade en vooral koffie. Erg lekker!
