Had on tap. A nicely done export stout, that really does well to capture the style's malt profile, but then add some chocolate liqueur, almond, coffee, and hawaiian sea salt. Definitely the best export stout I have had in a long time.

This poured out as a very nice looking black color with a thin brown head on top. The smell of the beer is roasty, very roasty. The taste has a very roasted flavor to it, some dark chocolate bitterness to it. Not much sweetness at all on this. The feel is medium bodied. Overall it's a very good stout.

On tap at l'Express de Lyon in Paris. Great look, pitch black with a fine mocha head. The smell is roasted and of dark fruits especcialy black olive. The taste is balanced and roasted, very dry with no additional sweetness. The earthy hops complement well the malt. The mouthfeel is very smooth. Overall it's a great beer, highly recommended

Bottle purchased at Beers of the World in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a menacingly dark black, with a tight creamy light mocha colored head, and not much lacing.

Smells like strong, earthy, charred, and super black roasted malt- this is what a stout should smell like. The malt character is fantastic, there's some light dark fruit character, and a nice piney hop aroma as well.

This is super roasty, and very European in character, with tons of bitterness, and very little sweetness. The hoppy and roasty bitterness lingers for a while on the palate. There's basically no sweetness, with bitter coffee and dark chocolate, too.

This is medium bodied, with a pretty creamy mouthfeel, and a lingering bitterness on the finish.

Excellent stuff here. I could imagine that this would take well to barrel-aging.

Pitch black color with creamy, mocha colored head. Aroma has a more classic, english style profile with sweet malts and dark fruit notes. Taste starts bittersweet and fruity with roasted malt character and dark chocolate. Finishes more bitter with a slight acidity from the roasted malts. Medium to full bodied with medium to low carbonation and smooth mouthfeel. Overall it's a really good, well made stout.

Poured from the bottle into a large snifter glass. Bottled July 16th 2015.

Thick and deep rich mocha dark brown head off the pour, easily making three fingers of rich and decadent foam. Settles to an easy one finger puck, thick and bowled with a real nice cap. Dark as night body, nearly black but with a deep red edge, not a drop of light is getting through this. Deep, dark, booming, and menacing looking real impressive.

Thick and rich aroma. Deep amounts of sweet charcoal and roast. Char like softness but also a real immense and soft black licorice sweetness that comes off the brew. Even some almost smokey like tones that come out as well. Real great aroma coming off of this brew.

Palate takes some real nice angles. Thick and nearly velvety body, rolling in char and roasted malts. Sweet sensing tobacco flavors push the mid palate and then leave with lingering notes of hop mellow bitterness. Hop angle gives a real boost to some sweet black licorice tones and even a bit of warming smokey chocolate flavors that just chew off the tongue.

This comes off as a big brew, but gets a little more subtle on the palate and an unperceived hop bitterness becomes apparent. Still comes off really darn delicious though, and even at this age it's delivering in spades. Wonderful beer.

Pours a super dark brown, near black, with a dense creamy brown head that leaves a thick ring and some spotty lace. Looks "bigger" than a 7.4% beer. Nose is a bit on the mild side, with soft rounded malts, dark chocolate, and earthy notes. Flavor is thick and chocolaty with a touch of smokiness. Mouthfeel is that of a 9 or 10% stout. Overall, a very good beer.

33cl bottle. Viscous pitch black pour, with a very fine espresso head that is slow to rise to the surface, and that gives way to a nice lacing. Smells of roasted malts, dark chocolate. The taste follows the same notes, with roasted malts, dark chocolate, bitter espresso, a bit of smoke and dark cherries.

S: Coffee and peppy esters.
