cervmagpt (793) - PORTUGAL - MAR 7, 2017
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 15B). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown (BBF 15.10.17). AROMA: medium roasted aroma with coffee and chocolate notes. slight nutiness and fruitiness (dried grapes) with a slight sweetness. APPEARANCE: dark brown to black color with ruby highlights. Medium moussy light brown head with good retention. TASTE: similar to the aroma with medium roasted notes (coffee and slight dark chocolate). medium bitterness with an almost dry and roasted/bitter finish. PALATE: medium-light body with medium-low carbonation. no astringency. OVERALL: a good stout but NOT imperial (and with a bit more alcohol for the irish stout style).

From elcervecero. In Teku glass. Playing Magic 2015. Low ABV but still full of taste and aroma. Great balance between roastyness, sweetness and bitterness with some spicyness too. At the end of the glass yeast seem to concentrate spoiling the last 2 sips though
