Notes/Commercial Description:
We use smoked and peated malts to create an intricate malt foundation. Our method of dry hopping with vanilla beans and oak chips pushes the depth of this stout’s flavor spectrum even further.

330ml bottle bought from GapWines, Belfast

Poured pretty much pitch black. Dirty mocha tan head poured small but tight, thick and foamy then faded quite quickly to decent half finger coating... some light clingy lacing...

Aroma - Strong roasted dark chocolate malts mixed with a good dose of freshly ground coffee beans, burnt butter, cola traces, vanilla, some piney / grassy hops, toasted (charred ?) malt loaf, chocolate cookie dough, slight smokiness, cocoa powder...

Taste - Strong charred / sooty notes, bitter black coffee mixed with sweetish milk chocolate and also some dark bitter chocolate... lots of pepperiness, vanilla, light oakiness, light pine, some powdered chocolate, light treacle, grassy and earthy traces, some tobacco smokiness, faint roasted nuttiness...

Feel - Quite smooth and creamy... medium / full bodied.. a very quaffable brew even at 6% - no real trace of the alcohol..

Overall - A very good stout and better than i was expecting... recommended...
