Appearance: Impenetrable black with a wispy overlay. It quickly snaps back to the rim with random spots of lace in its wake.
Aroma: It practically jumps out of the glass. The intensity of the coconut hits the olfactory’s first followed by espresso coffee, vanilla, chocolate, medium malt roast, black peppercorns and toasted marshmallow. The strength of the aroma literally hides any trace of the 12% AbV. Remarkable!
Flavour: Exact mirror image of the aroma – the infusion of coconut is immense then the espresso coffee, vanilla and chocolate takes hold. At this point it is just a liquid Bounty bar in our glass. Getting touches of spicy peppercorns which exposes the warming booze in the finish. Brilliant length as well.
Mouthfeel: Thick, gummy and plenty of muscle. Full body with mild-medium co2. 12% AbV….as we said previously it’s unbelievably well hidden.
Overall: Another epic offering from these Dutchmen. It’s our 2nd entry and both have been top notch dessert stouts. It will be interesting to see if they have depth in their repertoire…we’re willing to find out!
