3.68/5 rDev -10.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance is the darkest of browns with an immense tan foam head that sustains, moderate lacing
Smell is deep bittersweet chocolate and lighter coffee malts alongside a stiff alcohol presence, hints of roast
Taste is initially full of dark bittersweet chocolate which dominates throughout, opens up to some sweet malts and touches of espresso and roast malts, hints of dark fruits, oatmeal grains, and earthy hops for balance, finishes with a moderate alcohol warming sensation
Mouthfeel is full-bodied, smooth velvety texture, ample carbonation
Drinkability is moderate, well-balanced semi-sweet stout with a considerable alcohol boost, not in the top tier for this style but a must-have for any dark chocolate lovers
Serving type: bottle
