3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black body with a light-brown head, ok head retention and lacing. Quite strong roasted sweet aroma with chocolate, dark fruits, yeast and a touch of coffee. The taste is light sweet and the finish is light to moderate bitter and pleasantly dry. Rather strong and very pleasant flavours that follow the aroma: roasted notes, chocolate, fruits and berries, coffee, ash and faint yeast. Light to medium body (for from being as horribly light as some dry stouts tend to be), with a pleasant dry texture. Medium to soft carbonation. Impressive for a 4.7% ABV!
