2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
courtesy of Marcel Vogt - pours a very dark brown - almost black - beer under a little head retention; roasted malts with notes of tar and vanilla; the body is quite thin compared to the alcohol content; velvety palate and shyly tasty; some grainy tartness, low bitterness and some sweetness; aftertaste of ashes, slightly dry - simplistic and unimpressive

Black colour, dissipating beige head. Aroma of citrus, hops, chocolate. Rather nice. Sour flavour, malts, citric acid. Meh. Sour, malty finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black bodied and small yet stable tan head. Brown bread, coffee, little but enough balancing hops. Decent aroma. Watery body, salty even. Light and acidic. Really bizarre taste. I understand the super low ratings a bit but the aroma is nice and looks are decent. Just a unique taste profile, like a salty Dunkel. Very thin though for the abv.

Bottled. Nothing special. I like stouts, but this one looks really not interesting. Poor aroma, empty taste..

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled, thanks fonefan! Black with gushing beige head. Lemony tobacco aroma. Dominated by infected sourness. Spritzy and metallic with primitive hard malt. Aluminium and citric acid in the finish. A miserable failure. Seems like it’s a kit homebrwe that is completely infected. Since the good idea the brewer hatchedhad when he started the only brewery in the country everything has gone wrong it seems.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
330ml bottle - shared by rosenberg - thanks!
First smell was very odd - a bit off. Second was much nicer, a stale coffee roastiness. Watery palate, some sour notes. Horribly papery and dry and old, but not in a good way. Someone basically stirred ash into this. Metallic ashy sourness. It had potential from the aroma, but I simply don’t like the taste. Feels old, and the associated thinness. Not a good stout at all.

Bottle 0.33l, thanks to Rosenbergh. Colour is black with tiny brownish white head. Aromas and flavours: Hints of coffee, some strange sourness and roasted malts. Horrible.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330 ml bottle. L10. BB 09/13. From teddybeer. Gràcies José!
Black colour with a tiny tan head.
Coffee, roasted malt, mild sweetness, oatmeal, ash and mild sourness in the aroma. The flavour is bad. Sourness. And some hops maybe. Watery. Not a good stout. Quite the opposite.
