Tar black color, with a decent head.

Roasted, sweet malt aromas, hints of fig and chocolate.

Very creamy, smooth stout. A bit on the sweeter side, with bitter chocolate, and again, lots of cream. Carbonation is a little too high, distracts from the smooth overall impression. Chocolate becomes very flashy in the end, mingles well together with coffee notes. Metallic carbonation is still a little unpleasant. Creamy, bitter, long lasting aftertaste.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

First of all: it's a sweet stout, it's not dry neither should be. I drank mine at room temperature (18°C) because I think it enhances the smell and taste.

Look: Very dark brown colour. Nice thick light brown head that disappears after a while leaving a thick lace.

Smell: Well, the name gives it away, it smells of chocolate and malt. Coffee also is quite strong (maybe even more than chocolate).

Taste: Bouchet and aftertaste of chocolate, here the coffee is less present. Very strong also the bitterness of the hops, that gets stronger during the aftertaste.

Feel: Reeeeally smooth and drinkable, despite being rather complex and bitter. Medium low carbonation. Probably the feel would benefit from drinking it at a lower temperature (well, I chose a compromise).

Overall: extremely pleasant, can be enjoyed with a variety of foods (I drank mine with french cheeses and a salad and it was fitting perfectly). Definitely will drink again.
