3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Köpt som Höststout. Mörkt brun ogenomsiktlig öl med moccafärgat kraftigt skum. Doft av hårt rostad malt och lite aska. Den hårda rostningen finns även lite i smaken även om den inte är lika framträdande där. Istället framträder en sötare smak av i det närmaste mjölkchoklad. Viss humlebeska i avslutningen. Välbalanserad men hade gärna sett lite mer av allt.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle pours black in color with a 2 finger light brown head that leaves some excellent lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild but pleasant with chocolate, roasted grains and citrus. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with a roasted grains and citrus hop bitterness. Medium bodied with adequate carbonation. A delicious stout that is well balanced and recommended.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle bought in Denmark, pours near black with a fine thick beige head, nose brings cocoa, hints of ginger and cinder toffee, and a touch of milk. Body is initially dry and roasty with a slightly cremy texture, then treacle emerging in the mid-body, along with a spicy burnt caramel and roast coffee note. Finally a long burnt-bitter coffee and milk chocolate finish.

From a 500ml bottle on 2/6/2013 (shared by Butz with thanks). Pours close to black with a biggish head that subsides quickly. Has a pleasant chocolate malt aroma and some slight roasty notes. The flavour is a lovely balance of coffee and chocolate, with a medium roasty bitterness. Has a fullish body and medium bitterness. A very nice stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a tan head.
Nose shows coffee, roasted malt and little else. Nice though.
Bittersweet flavours of roasted malt and roasted coffee again. The coffee seems a bit stale though.
Could use a little more carbonation.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours pitch black with dark tan head. Huge roasted coffee and dark chocolate nose, with a light soy aroma. Taste is dark chocolate, cocoa, espresso, soy milk and an earthy yeast. Body was a bit thinner than I expected, was hoping for thicker. Nice beer for a winter night.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Fermentoren, Copenhagen. Poured a dark mahogany with a thin long-lasting head. The flavour is medium bitter, with loads of chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. The palate is super smooth. A very drinkable beer and at 6% makes a great beer for a session if that floats your boat!

Bottle from Systembolaget, Sweden.
Short deep-brown head that stays as a lace.
Huge chocolate and coffey aroma but also a bit of soy.
A dark chocolate taste with big body. The choclate bitterness lasts long time. A beer more suited for the winter than the spring.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Fermentoren, pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma of coffee, mocha, and some chocolate. Flavour brings out sweet chocolate malts, mocha and coffee beans. Medium-to-high sweetness, with a thick body. Characterized mostly by the chocolate and secondarily by the coffee. Great stuff.
