imageDeep dark in colour, although gives the impression of lightbodied stout- not really thick texturewise as many of the good ones of this sort. Aroma of coffee and some sweet hints, pours small head. Quite fresh, highly definined espresso-taste, and as expected, light texture. The coffeetaste is at front and gives a very bitter taste to this one that prevails- as the main coffee-traces is shortlived, although quite extreme in terms of presence.

Death ValleyPours about half an inch head, pretty mirky by looks, light brown. Smells of fresh fruit, mainly citrus and apples… The hops shines through. Tastewise, it kicks off with a rather unusual sweetness which evolves in a malty direction. Fullbodied, longlasting, and with a round taste, very well balanced. At first sweet malty taste, before maximizing the curve midway through, then with a smooth bitter leap, before fading out in a subtle acidic opus. But definately centered around the malts.
