Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of deep roasted barley malt with notes of dry coffee with some hazelnut nectar which rounds off some of the rough edges. Taste is a mix between some deep dry roasted malt notes with dry coffee notes and some hazelnut notes which helps rounds off the flavours. Body is quite full with good carbonation and nice creamy body and no apparent alcohol. I liked this version better than the Koppi version.

It pours near black with a small tan head. The nose is rich-roasted coffee, earth, creaminess, toast, dark and milk chocolate. The taste is rich-roast, coffee, light peppery spice, cocoa, good deal of bitterness, earth, toast, light lactose, some acidity and alcohol warmth. Full body, moderate carbonation and slightly stick mouth-feel. Smooth and tasty.
