Apperance: Opaque pitch black body, with a medium sized brown head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma: dark malts, chocolate, lightly roasty, leaves,caramel.
Taste: dark malts, chocolate, light roast, leaves, caramel , solid dark malty bitterness and even some nice hops for a stout. Very refined in taste.
Oily texture, full body, a bit too much carbonation for it’s style, slightly above average I would say.
Taste is really balanced out, and a prime example of the style, except for that too powerfull carbonation.

12 oz bottle from back in the middle of 2015 - thankfully, stouts keep quite well! Pours a deep black shade with a minimal layer of tan froth. Aroma is strongly dominated by dark chocolate and roasted malt, with hardly any trace of hops. Taste follows the nose, rich draft chocolates and roasty malts, sweet to the taste with a absolutely divine chewiness and thickness in the mouthfeel. Carbonation is average which nicely balances out the thickness and smoothness of the mouthfeel with its buzziness.
