3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours light brown, medium tan top. Woody, slightly smoky aroma that is supported loosely by malt base. Smoked malt, refreshing palate, and woody character with neat bitter to it. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Head is mostly diminishing.
Body is dark brown.
Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, chocolate), lightly yeasty (barnyard), with a note of wood.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter.
Light to medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation.
Interesting aroma with...wild yeast? Nah, couldn’t be. A bit thin, but a nice balance. I must admit I rather liked this.

Poured a bubbly light brown head over a light black body. Smelled of dark chocolate and well roasted malts. Tasted again of the well roasted malts, charred brown bread and a bitter chocolate coming at the end. More fizzy than creamy on the palate, medium feel.

Bottle. Almost black colour with a beige head. Roasted, burned, coffee, light smoke, bitterness. Light body. Fully drinkable, but a bit simple and too harsh bitterness.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Basically black, not much head from my pour. Dry, bitter stout, with very dark chocolate, burnt toast. Quite harshly bitter without corresponding richness. Still fairly drinkable and a not unpleasant experience.

Svart öl med ett skum som är förvånande ljust med tanke på ölets färg. Doft: Kaffe, mörk choklad, mörk gräddkola, honung, linnea (blomman;b), skog. Smak: Mineraler, svagt kaffe, lätta rökiga och fruktiga smaker. Allmänt lätt i smak.
