Needs time to unfold its "Aretės". Amazing aroma of espresso, vanilla & chocolate or cocoa. Fudgy with big notes of vanilla. It's like a still stout, but oily. Boozy & kinda spicy from the rye. I don't get distinctly the barrels. Otherwise, a big stout.

Thanx to Fotis. Needs some time to open up in the glass. Quite nutty peanut aroma, dark chocolate, cocoa. Tawny port shines more in the taste with its tannins & the sweet jammy character. Some nice fruit tartness brakes the sweetness. Super thick.Earned the Untappd at Home (Level 49) badge! Earned the Heavy Weight (Level 84) badge!
It's one of these rare unexpected moments when a friend appears out of the blue & offers you a pour of the most sought-after stout. I couldn't get my nose out of the glass. Intoxicating aroma, undreamed layering of flavours & balance, divine mouthfeel.Earned the Cheers to Independent U.S. Craft Breweries (Level 47) badge! Earned the 99 Bottles (Level 72) badge!

High carbonation, lemony, funky, rounded from the barrel but I don't get further the wine touch.Earned the Baking in Balkan (Level 18) badge!
