Pretty stinky aroma. Sweet body. Soem strange herbal aspects. Very sweet body, I can’t stress that enough. Nice dry hoppy finish though. Pretty dull after the roasty start. Disappointed, no part of this grabbed me.

outstanding aroma, whiskey, cherries in chocolate,

velvet feeling, very warming due too its incredible 15% alcohol.

It feels like your sweet grandma did something dirty in your mouth. You want to say that its not okay, but you just can’t help but like it.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black with an inch of frothy medium-brown head, fine near the edges and coarse and foamy in the middle, slow to fade. Really quite beautiful! Cocoa, slight milk, powdered sugar, touch of soy sauce, some pine sap (yum!) Body is syrupy, somewhat oily starchy, medium-heavy weight, creamy moderate carbonation with little burn, super smooth. An amazing mouthfeel! Flavor is lightly sweet raw sugar on top of dissolved brown sugar and a delightful, crisp and light bitterness - slightly foresty. A hint of salt. Yum! Not overbearing given the abv, but somehow balanced towards the sweet and totally dark stout looking. Highlight is the silky body, closely followed by the beautiful appearance and then the balanced flavor!

Bottle. Pours sirupy pitch black with nice brown mocha head. Aroma is heavy sweet, so rich and has some lacto yoghurt in there. Some sweet grains,dark malts, roasty malts, candied sugar, slight booze, oats, rich milk chocolate, savoury with some salty liquorice. Port notes in there as well and slight booze. Taste does surprise you - it’s even more sweet! So heavy sweet. Roasty dark malts, dried fruits, port wine, some subtle spiciness, salty salmiak. Some burnt sirup. Rich creamy and sirupy body with low carbonation. Finish is roasty, which to a point cut the sweetness, and then some intense sweet red grapes. Some dry viscous port notes.. No presence of the 15%!
