3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle) Black coloured hue with a beige and firm mid-sized foamy head. Moderately roasty and slightly earthy malty aroma with notes of liquorice, dark chocolate and traces of cocos. Roasty bitter and slightly sweet flavour, rather light bodied with a soft carbonation. Slim roasty malty start with notes of liquorice, cacao, crusty oat bread and shades of vanilla; a tad slim roasty malty finish. Could have had a bit more body. 15.VIII.14

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Dark brown colour with small to average, thick, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, beige to tan head. Dark malty aroma with a roasty touch, hints of chocolate, instant coffee, coffee surrogate, sugary hints of artificiality. Taste is roasty dark malty, hints of cold coffee, instant coffee, a herbal/spicy touch of chicory, coffee surrogate, coffee-bitterness. Unsatisfactory, encourages to reconsider one’s criteria about artificiality.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a super dark brown with a hint of orange peeking through just at the edge and then a thick rich tan head. The beer smells of dark roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. The taste is dark roasted malt, bitter chocolate, coffee, dark fruit ending dry and roasty. The body is light/medium with fine carbonation that is a tick below average in intensity.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle, poured into a pint.
Color is an opaque black. Forms a large, beige head and leaves lots of lacing.
Aroma is not very strong, just some roasted malt.
Taste is full, roasted... on the bitter side. Leaves a pleasant, coffee like aftertaste.
Body feels heavy, creamy, soft and the carbonation is just right, making it very drinkable.
Overall a very nice stout, a good rendition of the style.
