500ml bottle from Valdieu2. Thanks! Into an MBC wine glass. Bottled 8/10/12.

A: Pours a nice brownish black with a good light tan head. Nice lacing as well.

S: Sweet coffee and cocoa, some vanilla as well.

T: Surprisingly hoppy, yet pretty balanced. Mild roast, some pine and citrus with a good amount of bitterness, dark chocolate, light vanilla.

M: Medium-bodied, creamy.

O: This is a nice stout with a good mouthfeel. Perhaps less hoppy bitterness would help it along but other than that I really enjoyed it.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Opaque, dark chocolate, delightful two/three finger foamy chocolate head. Lacing seems to last forever.

Smell: Coffee, cocoa, nutty, a hint of vanilla.

Mouthfeel: Slightly heavy carbonation, creamy finish

Taste: Starts with almost a burnt espresso, bitter, finishes with a lighter, creamy coffee taste and a hint of vanilla.

Overall: Thick, robust, slightly bitter dessert-y brew, pairs great with tiramisu. Would definitely recommend.

Serving type: bottle
