Brewery: Stillwater Artisanal
Style: untraditional stout
Appearance: It’s almost pitch black and I could not see through it at all if I held the glass in front of a light. A nice head appears while you poor the beer but the foam disappears quickly.
Aroma: It smells like a Belgian beer, which isn’t a surprise since it is fermented with Belgian yeast. It smells almost like a quadrupel. A bit of fruity notes and you can sense a hint of tartness in the aroma.
Taste: It is very delicious and has fruity and tart notes. The beer is when you take a sip at first acidic and then the fruity notes appears while swallowing it and then in the after taste a bit roasty and smokey notes comes out.
Mouthfeel: It is well carbonated and it feels like lots of small bubbles cracking on the edge of my tongue when I take sips of this beer, a little tingling feeling. The body is lighter than an usual stout.
Overall: With its lighter body I feel this beer is perfect if you feel like having a beer with darker malts and lots of flavours but not as heavy as a typical stout. An awesome beer, Cheers!
