3.35/5 rDev -11.4%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A- Black with a slight orange hue in the light not much of a head but a little bit of lacing.
S- Very sweet, but in a great way. roasted malt up front, chocolate all throughout adn some anise at the very end.
T- Cocoa, roast malt, not very sweet, pretty dry in fact. Bitter coffee flavor without the nice roast coffee flavors. the bitterness stays with you in the aftertaste.
M- Cask so it's nice and smooth with a lighter body than I would have expected, easy drinking none the less.
O- Not bad but I was let down by the taste. It just could have been a bit maltier and if it had the chocolate undertones the aroma delivered I would have been very happy with it. I guess I can't be too critical though as it is a Dry Stout. maybe just not my style of stout.
Serving type: cask
