2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Made the mistake of starting with an imperial stout, then a bourbon barrel stout , now this double chocolate. Disappointed expected more smoothness and sweetness. But then again started with the best, should have started with this stout. Not bad but wouldn’t go out of my way for it. Too bitter and acid on my palate. finish is ok, but looking for that smooth velvety chocolate sweeter finish

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: 5/10. Basic malt and some hops. -- Appearance: 5/5, pours a beautiful black with a tan-brown head that lingers a little while. -- Taste: 7/10. Intense cocoa and chocolate, but mostly cocoa, with some malt. Not much layers to this one. -- Palate: 4/5. Decent mouthfeel. Somewhat astringent. Very dry, like Guiness. -- Overall: 14/20. Not a bad beer, but not a great one. A focus on cocoa rather ignores the underlying weakness of the body and taste of the beer. It’s like Guiness with more cocoa. Not particularly impressed.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours nearly black with a big, frothy head. The aroma has plenty of roasty maltiness with notes of chocolate, nuts and bisquit. Taste is medium sweet, light roasty and very much influenced by chocolate. Dark chocolate dominates the flavours; only a hint of other malty nuances appear. Light hoppiness, light bitterness in the finish. The medium-bodied palate is velvety smooth with a low carbonation. A bit one-dimensional; too sweet and too much chocolate and not enough roastiness.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 500mL. Home with Pawel. A dark brown beer with a medium white-off creamy head. Medium persistence. Aroma of caramel, roasty, earthy, heath, coffee (?). Medium bitter, light sweet. Medium body and texture. Average to soft carbonation. Bitter finish. Overall, a good stout to share with a friend. Nice aroma. I wouldn’t say chocolate aroma is obvious...
