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.

Intro: A 341ml bottle with a bottled on date of 13th August 2015 and poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: It poured a deep dark brown, near black colour with a less than one finger tanned head that disappears fairly quickly but leaves nice small spotty lacing.
Aroma: Strong coffee, espresso, sweet black cherry and vanilla, roasty malts and a hint of dark chocolate.
Taste: Very nice coffee, roastiness, lightly charred with a finish that is a lingering dark chocolate bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Smooth velvety, full bodied with low carbonation.
Overall: Very nice coffee stout that I could drink again and again. Will definitely age a few bottles since it does suggest that on the back label. Would also love to try a barrel-aged version of this bad boy.
