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

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
