COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Bottle 50cl kindly shared by Dominique. A dark beer with low white head. Nose is on roasted malt. Aroma is on chocolate, peated touch, nice body, long roasted and smoked notes, quite complex, nice black beer.

Mustaa ja tunkkaista eli hyvää. Hyvä aromi, pehmeä ja pieni humala. Ihan parhaita luokassaan.

Nitrogen pour. It is light with peat cocoa and caramel notes. It I is solid for what it is.

Oakes (12626) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2014
Dark brown, aroma is mild, hint of dark malt, probably diacetyl. Sour, like off. Not that easy to foul up a nitrokeg stout but somewhere along the way this picked up some faults.

IPAgutten79 (517) - Skui, NORWAY - MAR 2, 2014
Svart, nesten uten skum. Litt anonym og uinteressant aroma. Mørk malt, noe sjokolade. Muligens kaffe. Sødme. Smaken er litt bedre, mild kaffe. Litt tørr. Tynn/medium konsistens. Lett bitter. Ikke den beste ettersmaken jeg har vært borti. Kjedelig.
