Coming in a 330ml brown bottle, bottle-conditioned; bottled on 11/12/2013, BB 11/12/2014, served lightly-chilled in a long-stemmed, broad-rimmed goblet.

A: pours an almost pitch black colour, coming with very fine carbonation and a thin khaki foamy head to last.
S: good composition of roast malts, coffee candy, black dates, nutty praline; given a swirl, the nutty malts deliver a really deep and delicious gristy aroma, along with earthy and floral hints of hops.
T: the rich, but not heavy, swallow of coffee-ish and burned-caramely maltiness is backed by a nicely lingering charred-wood aroma, a tangy feel of herbal bitterness and a sound acidity from roast malts with faint resemblance of black prunes; the chewy mouthfeel keeps the palate lively, and adds a bit more depth to the flavour at the end of each long sip. The roast-walnutty (on skins) undertones seem to linger nicely at the back of the palate, otherwise finishing dry and pretty clean, without any undesirable cloying/sugary mouthfeel.
M&O: healthily carbonated, this medium-plus bodied strong stout shows a very decent integrity and balance on the flavour profile, as well as keeping a relatively dry mouthfeel at the end of each sip. To a dark ale lover, this product can be added to the book of “Beers To Drink Again”, for sure.
