Pour: very thick frothy dark yellowish-brown head, obsidian body with slight reddish-brown tint when held to the light. Looks very inviting.

Nose: Roasted malt, chocolate, soya sauce, coffee.

Palate: Roasted malt is the strongest note here, with substantial hops at the end. Some sweetness retained, but dryer than a normal creamy stout. Robust but not creamy; more reminiscent of coffee without milk. Very well-balanced and smooth despite robustness.

Very good stout. I like how robust the roasted flavour is; it lingers for a while, hanging around the palate.
