From bottle at RBESG 2016 in Barcelona, Grand Tasting. Black colour, small tan head. Roasty aroma and flavour, distinct coffee notes, fairly dry. Better than average.

The appearance was a pitch black body, half finger white head that quickly dies and has some light trickling around the sides of the glass. The smell had dark roasted coffee beans, super light chocolate. The taste had some bittersweetness and combined very well through the previously mentioned flavors, bitter aftertaste, dry finish. The palate was about a medium, fairly sessionable, smooth, ABV wasn’t felt. Overall, I think this was a very well done for a coffee-forward American Stout.
