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.

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.
