AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks angst for the bottle. A stout made with syrup from Vermont in Sweden. Whoa. Pours like motor oil. Thick and syrupy. Two finger brown and creamy head appears at the very end of the pour. Fades quickly. Even at 40F, the aroma is potent. Almond joy, vanilla, coconut, chocolate and cream. Smells decadent. The flavor. Marshmallow and ashy charcoal and smoke. It’s just too burnt tasting for my preference. It is very close in aroma and mouthfeel to BCS but the flavor lacks the sweetness and long lasting flavor of the big honcho. It’s a very nice beer. The 375 split is perfect.
