3.03/5 rDev -29.5%
33cl bottle into tulip.
A: Dark brown with just a thion touch of brownish head, leaving some lacing.
S: Dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, strong alcohol.
T: Intense hop bitterness dominates on top of a super dense roasted malt base. Warming alcohol with a slight yeast character that I would usually call Belgian. In spite of this it seems underattenuated and sweet.
M: Thick, tarry and syrupy with pretty slight carbonation. You would think this would be hard to drink but it is oh so pleasant.
O: Not too used to this style but I guess they are going for as much malt and hops as possible in a stout. They succeeded.
