3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle (HBF2013, Friday)
Rich roasty coffee aroma. Sweetish, but so burnt. Smooth in palate, nice carbonation. Full in the mouth. Roasty, a little dry but no astringency. Covers 7% well - almost watery. Tons of red berries in the retronasals. Lovely roast finish. Good one. Did get some soy later, but it didn’t spoil my enjoyment at all.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at the brewery in Blaton.
Typical color, lightly hazed, decent head retention.
Husky, starchy burnt grains in the nose (burnt popcorn).
Medium body, moderately acidic, somewhat lactic.
Chocolate / caramel syrup simpleness, dark cara malt extract syrup. Various off-putting dirty notes of dish rag, solvent, pepper. Beginner homebrew-level quality. Sadly this was the best of the flight.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Huge brown-tan head, slowly receding over brown-black beer. Volatile, but remarkable fruity-light sweetish aroma as from billberries. After that, rather sweet-roasted flavour, as dark soft candi sugar, molasses, (scorched) syrup. Roasted peanuts. More classical flavours in the taste: roasted/burnt grains and malts, restricted amount of restsugars; roasted nuts. Overall rather sweet, little bitterness. Bit ashes retronasal, warming up, coffee. Feels probably better bodied than it really is; grist-like slickness. Sweeti-ish stout, decent.
