500 ml bottle with a stamped BB date of 6 Jan. 2014.

Clear, very dark red-brown; opaque in the pint glass.

Aroma: fine but faint.

Feel: Medium body; medium+ (slightly too high?) carbonation.

Flavor: mild and light up front; some richness, mainly from dark malts, in the finish and aftertaste. A hint of coffee.

O: do not serve too cold: a richer and more complex flavor unfolds at warmer temps.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Deep black color with some red beams when exposed to light and a thin caramel head with short retention, but leaving some laces.
Light aroma of coffee, dark chocolate and nuts.
Flavor of roasted malts, earthy hops, strong coffee, a bit of licorice, nuts and cocoa, yeast and some muffled citrusy. Dry and bitter aftertaste with a lingering roasted note. Lightly acid and spicy sensation.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation.
Very good stout, dry and relatively unsweetened with nice roasted notes. Assertive, but not boring.

From the 650 ml. bottle. Sampled on March 8, 2014 and served around 45 degrees.

The pour is mainly dark mahogany brown but it does hovers around jet black, opaque look too. There is a long-lasting cream colored head that leaves a nice does of lacing as it fades and I drink it.

Subtle but in interesting aromas. Dark roasted malts, some black licorice, moderate sweetness, a little smoke, and water minerals.

Light to medium body makes it rather drinkable.

The taste also brings out the dark malts, sweetness, and caramel while the hop bitterness at the finish is a but more muted but definitely there. There is a dry lingering finish. Great pub beer! Bring it on!
