Pours a clear, very dark brown. Very minimal aromas of dark malts and coffee. Medium-heavy mouthfeel, bitter, dark chocolate, slightly sweet. A nice, rich stout.

Look - Jet black with a half a finger tan coloured head that doesn't dissipate.

Smell - obvious coffee. Smells quite sweet. There is also a slight hop presence, a touch of vanilla.

Taste - espresso coffee, quite full bodied, lingering biterness. Not sweet. Quite nice.

Black colour, with a big brown head that lasts all the while, sticks to the glass and leaves a great lace. Taste of coffee beans, with some notes of chocolate and dark fruits. Medium body, thick and creamy palate with a hint of brandy flavour. Taste is similar to smell: coffee beans, chocolate, fruits, alcohol notes. Bitter finish.
