4.47/5  rDev +8.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

500 ml bottle.

A- Pitch black, Very nice creamy moka head with good durability and that leaves a thick layer of suds on the glass as it goes down.

S- Chocolate with a touch of roast coffee. Faint hint of plum/prune and alcohol.

T- Slightly sweet, but not excessively. Chocolate. Touch of roasted coffee and a bitter aftertaste. Alcohol and drid fruit hints come through as it warms.

MF- Smooth. A bit highly carbonated. Good body. Some alcohol warmth.

D- A very nice sipping stout with high ABV well hidden. Not everyone will like the sweetness, but I did. A desert beer for the end of the evening.

4.25/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Apparantly the winter 2006 version was 9% (same old label, abv corrected with a marker).

A: Black with a fluffy, tan head; good retention & lacing.

S: Chocolate; malty (bready with roasted nuts); light floral & alcohol.

T: Dark chocolate with a pleasant maltyness (reminiscent of Ovaltine), subtle roasted malt flavour, slightly smokey, molases. The residual sweetness is balanced with the roasted bitterness.

M: Moderate body is smooth & creamy with a slightly acidic finish.

D: Easily approachable, very drinkable, but somewhat filling.

3.53/5  rDev -14.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle: Poured a deep black color stout with a nice dark brown foamy head with pretty good retention and lacing. Aroma of medium roasted malt with a nice touch of lactose. Taste of roasted chocolate malt is pretty dry with no noticeable hops. I’m not sure if my mouth was playing trick with me but I could really distinguish lactose in there. Interesting take on a style that I don’t have access to very often.
