4.21/5 rDev -0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
22oz. bottle poured into a Duvel tulip.
Appearance: Almost black with a nice 1" tan head that manages to hang around, nice sticky lacing.
Smell: Dark chocolate and roasted malt are immediately noticeable.
Taste: Dark bitter chocolate, whether this pleasant bitterness is from the roasted malt alone or has a bit of hoppiness to it is hard to tell. Beneath the dark chocolate that dominates you do notice some dark fruit (raisin & fig). Nice rich combination of flavor like raisins covered in a heavy layer of 85% cacao chocolate.
Mouthfeel: Pleasantly smooth, well carbonated, and very clean on the palate.
Overall: Really a delicious stout, the chocolate flavors were more predominant when the beer was colder, which is unusual. I liked it better before it became warmer, but still enjoyed the beer greatly overall.
Serving type: bottle
