500ml bottle, 2018 vintage. Snifter glass. Dark black body, good legs, one half finger offwhite head, good retention, no lacing. Smell is massive hazelnut and chocolate, a bit of candy bar milk chocolate, whiskey warmth, slightly toasted darker chocolate malt, light earthy espresso. This comes together even better on the palate; the hazelnut is front and center without being too sweet or artificial. Big fudgy milk chocolate, bourbon, light earth, espresso. It's extremely well balanced with the bourbon, hazelnut and cacao, with the base stout providing a thick fudgy layer of chocolate; and it is not too sweet by any means, and split three ways the beer was not cumbersome to finish. Full bodied, chewy and palate coating which keeps stimulating the taste buds for minutes. Delicious hazelnut stout, one of the best of its genre.

Very dark appearance with slight tan head. Aroma is a very pleasant blend of hazelnut and coco. Taste is too good to be true with a blend of hazelnut and coco. Excellent
