4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This stout certainly fits quite well for the winter season. The foam is large, persistent and nice light brown. The color is black. It has a promising aroma of hard roasted malt, a little flower and a good delicate mocha flavor. The taste is full of good things: lots of sweet caramel, mocha, bitter chocolate and a subtle hint of licorice. The palate is very large and the overall impression is somewhat sweet stout, until a round and pleasant hoppy bitterness rounds off the experience.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep black color, topped with a medium sized beige colored head. Strong aroma of roasted malts, a bit smokey and some chocolate notes perhaps too. Also just a hint of funky, smelly nutty presence (or something liek that). Taste is sweet, a bit of caramel and coffee with just a hint of chocolate. Mild bitterness, easly drinkable.

Bottle, 0.50l, shared with friends at 3. Festival Mikropivovarjev, Koper. Almost black color with thin creamy light brown head and nice lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, grass and some flowers. Taste starts with smooth and rich moderate sweet roasted malt and chocolate, follows by refreshing grassy sourness and licorice, warming mouthfeel and moderate bitter finish. Medium body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Velvety smooth and tasty...

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Amager Sundby Stout) Bottle 500 ml at home, served into a shaker, ABV 6.2%
Dark mahogany brown colour on the body, one finger of tan head, thick and creamy, with very good retention, leaving light lacing behind.
Aroma has hints of nuts, plenty of roasted malts, some floral undertones, light chocolate.
Nice taste, chocolate again but much more now, the floral notes reduced but still there, faint citrus, nutty traces, hints of coffee on the finish.
Thick body, good carbonation, creamy and smooth on the palate.
Very good, worth every cent just for that creamy texture.

Aromat dobrej gorzkiej czekolady, nugatu, wyraźne kawowe tło. Barwa prawie czarna z rubinowymi refleksami. Obfita, drobna, beżowa piana. W smaku mieszanka czarnej, lekko kwaskowej kawy i dobrej gorzkiej czekolady. Niezła kawowa goryczka.

Tap. Small head vanishes fast. Deep redish brown. Roasty aroma. Dark malts, cola, herbs and some liqourice. Medium bodied, few but edgy carbons. Bitter dry aftertaste.
