3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Opaque very dark brown, rich firm head. Concentrated roasty licorice aroma. Rathe sweet with medium-fullbody, there’s salty licorice and tobacco. Sugary sweetness reduces the drinkability somewhat. The powerful bitterness sets in early and lasts long.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma and taste of snuff, chocolate and coffee. Quite bitter, but not too much. However, the roasted and acidic character ( + a hint of perfume) dominates totally, which kind of ruins it for me. Maybe this bottle wasn’t top notch?

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It poured a pitch black liquid with a small light brown foam that left just a little bit of lacing.
I was a bit suprised to sense some hops in the smell. However there where also some chocolate, and coffey. I liked the smell.
The taste was a bit watered down though, I would have liked it allot heavier, even for a stout. It had a taste of chocolate, coffey and burned toast. A decent beer.
