4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle from Meinl am Graben, Vienna, bb 04/02/17.
Black body, with a big, creamy, lacing, brown-beige head.
Aroma of tiramisu, caramel, coffee, cocoa powder, some vanilla, slight dark fruits.
Tastes of coffee, caramel, cocoa powder, vanilla, some wood, some liquorice, slight dark fruits.
Medium, very creamy mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes roasty-bitter, quite dry, with coffee, cocoa powder, liquorice, wood, subtly sweet, a bit alcohol warming.
Tasty. Quite sweet, but well balanced, with enough roastiness and a lovely coffee/caramel combination. Great smooth, creamy palate. Very good style example, fully aromatic, but really quaffable at the same time. Another proof that this is one of the very best macro breweries.

Bottle - Pours black, creamy tan head. Curious aroma of coffee, burnt pancakes, chocolate syrup, and funk. The flavor is better, and somewhat typical of stout, maybe a little on the sweet side.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 0,33L. Black color with big, long lasting, creamy head. Aroma of chocolate, sweet dark fruits, caramel and a touch of alcohol. Taste starts light bitter, but suddenly become vinous (reminds me of red wine) and than becomes moderate to heavy bitter again. Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Way better than the regular one...
