500ml bottle. Jet black colour with late awakening, small to average, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, tan head.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
50 cl bottle at home. Pours a rich black colour. You can make out a hint of red, but only against the rapidly failing light. Tan head that soon disappears. Aroma of roast, almost burnt malt, coffee and burnt toast with some peppery hop. Taste: a little sweetness, then rich bitterness. Some leafy, peppermint hop, then dry and bitter. Rich and slightly oily palate. In summary: great. Perfect for a winter’s afternoon, rich and complex, lots of interesting flavour.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Chocolate, coffee, nuts, licorice, roasted malts and a hint of vanilla in the aroma. Almost black with a tan head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium to full body with a soft carbonation. Overall a really nice stout with well balanced flavors of chocolate, coffee and some fruitiness. Really my kind of stout, easy drinkable, but still rich in flavor.
