4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Oily black pour with a 1-2 finger, creamy, caramel brown head. Aroma is huge on roast, some dark caramel, chocolate, wet granite, a little earth and grassy, light citrus and pine hops. Flavor starts of with a deep complex roastiness, nothing else to like it to at first, just a great application of roasted malt, after a little bit some other flavors come in dark chocolate, burnt sugar, sweet caramel malt, caramel malt grains (pre mashing), sweet, tree fruit esters, some sweet bread spice, molasses and pine hops. Heavy body with a creamy to syrupy entry, light carbonation and slightly more syrupy, but still creamy then off dry finish. Really fantastic stuff.
A rich and high ABV brew for after dinner nightcap. A nose of rich resin. The tongue of tenacious prune aftertaste. Lovely, if there were a smidgen more sweetness and thickness for the tongue... well that would be lovely.

Pours black and dense, with a small brown head, which faded quickly, slimy lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, dark fruit and vanilla. Tastes boozy, medium sweet, low bitterness, notes of vanilla, roasted malts, ripe dark fruits and molasses. Full body, slick feel, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall a very stout-ish porter, thick, tasty: a silent (not too silent) killer. planky84 (3345) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2017
