22oz Bottle. The pour was a pitch jet black with an average (1-2 finger) light cocoa brown rocky head that was mostly diminishing, down to a thin film and small collar with poor runny lacing.
The aroma was very robust of a burnt biscuit mat, light resin hops and a strong earthy yeast with notes of dark chocolate, roasted coffee, molasses, vanilla, a mild smokiness and a slight alcohol tinge.
The taste was bitter sweet with a nice malty feel and had notes of bitter chocolate and molasses from the beginning, progressing slightly into a purely bitter taste with a huge coffee presence and a mild smoky finish. The flavor lasted a very long time after the swallow with a bold smooth bitter coffee taste left to linger for quit a while.
Mouthfeel was full in body with a dry, oily texture and a solid medium carbonation.
Overall this was a boldly robust brew with a strong bitter mocha / coffee taste that is offset slightly by a mild sweetness, and was done very well may I say. Making this a very enjoyable tasty brew with a superb drinkability...
Bottle shared at kermis's. Pours almost black with some white foam. Nose is roasty but also with some sour touch. Leathery. Taste is roasty, caramel and some coffee and bitter dark chocolate. Becomes better after it gets some air. Serious foreign stout, roasty and warming. Good stuff. Maakun (6434) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 12, 2017

Schwarz mit durchschnittlicher Schaumkrone. Malzig, dunkle Schokolade, Malzkaffee, etwas Karamell, getreidig, würzig, leicht bitter. MetalNHopHead (2189) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - OCT 30, 2017
Rich and velvety smooth, Tsunami is an easy enough Stout to drink that you wouldn't necessarily have to relegate it only to winter enjoyment. This brew pours black with chocolate-colored head. Roasty, (dark) chocolatey, creamy, and grainy nose. Rich and cohesive flavors. Coffee, bittersweet fruity cocoa, and subtle dry sherry-like fruit flavors. This is a full-bodied brew with classic good looks and mellow character.

A- Tobacco, cocoa, roasty, subtle dark fruit.
A- Black color, dark liquid, brown head.
T- Tobacco, char, roasty, mild dark fruits, cocoa.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, slightly thin finish.
O- Good stout no doubt. Would like a bit more of the dark fruits though. Nothing beats Lion Stout in my opinion, but this drinks pretty easy. lello4ever (1193) - ITALY - OCT 26, 2017
