Poured from a tallboy can into a Duvel tulip. Moderate hand. No date seen.

A: Very dark ruby-tinted brown body on the pour. Opaque black in the glass. 3 fingers of light mocha-colored head. Good retention. Nice lacing.

S: Coffee, cacao, roasted malt with an earthy character. Subtle vanilla. Very faint smoke. Burnt nuts. Overall, the nose is a bit light. Somewhat medicinal.

T: Tangy, roasted malt initially with a burnt character arising midway. The hops build gradually for a semi-dry finish. Alcohol presence seems disproportionately high for 5.3% ABV.

M: Moderate carbonation with a medium to light body. A touch prickly.

O: Great looking stout that came up a bit short in the taste department. There are some good flavors lurking in there, but the brew struck me as a bit unrefined and somewhat harsh.

Prost!
