Another selection from Deadbolt82's box of QC. Thanks man!
Shared with Daftcaskbc. At least he didn't berate me for this one!! ;-P

Appearance. Pours a redish-cola with barely a skim of tan head. Light in colour for the style.

Smell. Sweet dark chocolate, roasted mixed nuts and some toasted dark malts. Smells good!

Taste. Very roasty and dry dark malts, bitter earthy hops, and a bit of cocoa powder adding a bit of sweetness. Dry finish.

Mouthfeel. Not quite medium body with medium carbonation. A little bit thin for the style.

Overall. Lots of flavour here which was a surprise after the misleading appearance. I would gladly drink it again.

Bottle: Poured a clear black color stout with a nice large brown foamy head with great retention and some lacing. Aroma of black chocolate notes with light roasted malt notes is quite pleasant. Taste is a nice mix between some black chocolate notes with some light roasted grain notes with some residual sugar notes that are still noticeable. Well brewed for the style and very nice level of drinkability.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: It has a nice jet black color to it. It has a nice thick beige head that dies down moderately and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of sweet roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee and some nuttiness.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some sweet roasted/toasty malts, dark chocolate, faint coffee and a nice nuttiness.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel but not quite as full as I would of liked

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with decent flavors and aromas.

A-Moka brown head, ultra dark brown body
S-Nice oat and chocolate aroma, with a subtle funky note
M-Light watery mouthfeel and medium to high carbonation
T-Sweetness upfront with a weak flavour of roasted and chocolate notes. A bitter finish balanced this beer out.
O-The bottle I drank was about one year old, bottled January 2016. It came out very heavily carbonated. A nice Stout, - little too sweet and watery for me, but quite drinkable
