3.63/5  rDev -7.2%

500ml bottle poured into a rocks glass (sadly the only glass available in my hotel room so take that with a grain of salt)
A: Very dark brown with a 1/2-finger head
S:Roasted coffee beans, cocoa powder
T: Dark malt, watered down iced coffee. I can definitely tell it's a stout but it's missing a full-bodied character most stouts have
M: Smooth but a bit thin for the style
O: This has all the right components but tastes a bit watered down. Definitely sessionable and by no means bad, though

500 ml bottle poured into a Pint glass
Appearance... all black beer with head colour white/beige of 2 fingers long lasting
Aroma... toasted malt and coffe beans. Fresh malty smell
Taste... toasted coffee, cocoa and smoked oat, dryness appears lately lasting all the time,
Mouthfeel... medium/full body and medium/soft carbonation
Overall... a very nice stout, good as seasonal and with food too. To revisit.
