3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample from 50 cl. bottle. Pitch black with a dense, tan head. Roasted aroma with coffee, chocolate, caramel and a slight hint of the lactose. Taste is sweet. Medium body, very creamy texture - lactose really shows here. Finishes sweet with a roasted note. Only a discrete bitterness. Very nice sweet stout.

On tap @ Ørsted Ølbar. Pours pitchblack with a tan head that leaves a lot of lacing. Distinct aroma of chocolate. Tastes of roasted malt and chocolate. Very sweet, smooth and creamy with a long chocolate-y aftertaste. Reminds me a bit of Young's Double Chocolate Stout. Very good.

Fra fat på Cardinal: god stoutaroma, men smaken er heller vammel. Vannaktig munnfølelse. Aroma innfrir, smak skuffer.

Courtesy of the guys at Mane Liquor. This was the best of the "Beer Here" beers I’ve had. Strong coffee taste with a background burnt taste. Became smoother as it warmed up, delicious!

500ml bottle. Thick and sludgy black in the glass with loads of thick dark tan foam. Bitter aromas of roasted malt and chocolate. Thick in the mouth with a sweetness that cuts through everything else. Very nice.
