Temptation (257) - - DEC 3, 2012
Very original beer, with a singular interpretation of the stout style (in an American way). The appeareance is perfect, one the best Ive ever seen in a stout: pitch black colour with a superb head, beige colour and solid as a rock. Great lasting and retention, but not too carbonated, the mouthfeel is very hoppy with a refreshing effect uncommon in average stouts. Very well balanced, with slight notes to coffee and roasted malts in opposition to (or complementing) the Cascade hop character. Very easy to drink, medium body and development. Very nice.

Dla mnie smakował jak zwykły stout. Miał czarną barwę, a także przyzwoitą, choć odrobinę nietrwałą pianę. Pachniał dosyć kawowo. Można było rwnież wyczuć odrobinę amerykańskiego chmielu, a także trochę karmelu i nut palonych. W smaku głwnie kawa i lekki karmel. Goryczka bardzo niska. Nasycenie niskie+. W widełkach stylu. Trochę jednowymiarowe. Może być.

Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from One Stop Market. Appearance is dark brown with slight mahogany, finger-width foamy light brown head with poor retention and nice sudsy foam lacing. Aroma is dark fruit, roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla. Taste is mix of sweet and bitter roasted malts, milder dark fruit, earthy hops. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin texture, soft-to-average carbonation, and dry, mild earthy bitter finish. Overall, a thinner texture than I?d like in a stout and the aroma is more exciting than the taste.
