Bottle, 330 ml at home, poured into a big snifter. ABV 6.5%
Black in colour, with one finger of brown head sitting on top, with good thick density and good retention as well. Light lacing remains after the head collapses and after every swirl of the glass.
Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts.
Taste is light milky chocolate, roasted malts. Slighty sweet and boringat first but at some point more roasted malts are kicking in, along with hints of coffee and a mild bitterness with good duration, which admitedly make it more interesting.
Body is very thin for a stout and the most disappointing about this beer. Good carbonation though and nice feeling on the palate.
Overall an okay stout, decent except for the body. MarcoDL (4845) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2013
Nice stout beer, roasted and bitter, with the subtle aromatic sweetness of coffee and chocolate.
