3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
651mL thanks to briandot. Pours deep brown to black. Medium, dense mocha foam. Webby to soapy lacing. Nose is salty, soy, lemon, herbal, huge green olive and pimento. Taste is light bodied, very salty, soy, Green olive. Palate is thin, but drinkable, near sessionable. The major olive here isn’t my style but I can see how it won medals for foreign stout.

Bottled (thanks MT). Black colour with a mediumsized beigeish brown head. Aroma is liquorice, some rye, chocolate and mild roasted notes with some toffee to it as well. Flavour is quite similar, and also has got some slight bitter grassiness to it. Tasty, and quite easy going.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pitch black with a nice light brown creamy head. Coffee grind at first, espresso with a bit of cream, but after a while brown candi sugar balances it off. The noise promises more than we get though. More carbonation than the typical stout. Dry finish, mineral, coffee, cream and sugar again

Bottle at Bolime tasting 3/2016. Clear dark brown colour, short lasting head. Strong toffeeish caramel, milk chocolate. Thin bodied, sweetish. Rather seems like a sweet stout. There is too little roast imo.
