3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black pour with a 1 finger, creamy mocha head that has excellent retention and leaves great lacing. Every sip brings a new cascade of lacing streaking downward from the point where my lip met the glass. Aroma is loaded with roast, chocolate, toast and lactose, then some dark caramel, toffee nuts, earthy and woody notes and a little booziness. Flavor is mocha sweetened with lactose, toffee, roast, a little char, earth, old campfire wood, light earthy notes, and light fruity and floral notes toward the finish. Medium to heavy body, creamy entry, chewy middle, light, blanketing and mildly sharp carbonation, syrupy, but chalky finish. There is a lingering feeling of sharp carbonation on the tongue that is very strange. Good stuff overall, I do dig Lacto Stouts in general and this has lots of components to make it awesome, but just enough throwing it off to make it just "good". Okay, maybe "really good". While I liked this beer quite a bit it is a terrible value. I paid $6.50/355ml (or maybe 330ml?) bottle. There are better stouts to be had for a little more than that price for six times the volume. That assertion doesn’t affect my score, but it is worth noting.

Piwo dobre czarne intensywne palone pachnace slodem pieczonym tostem, a w smaku lekko mleczne i stoutowe. Wytrawne mimo lekkiego wrazenia slodyczy w pierwszej fazie degustacji. Brazowawa spora piana, srednio trwala. Rozgrzewajaca i tresciwa sycaca koncowka.
