Intro: A 250ml pour on tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas into a Moeder Lambic snifter glass.
Appearance: It was a pitch black colour with a just less than two finger tanned head that had great retention and lacing.
Aroma: Dark chocolate, vanilla and coffee bean.
Taste: Dark chocolate truffles with vanilla and a light bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium to light bodied with light carbonation.
Overall: Looks and smells great. Body is a bit on the light side, but it was smooth and well balanced. One of the best stouts out there.
