Pours black with a medium creamy beige head. Aroma is dark chocolate, roast, earthy and coffee. Taste is bittersweet with some initial acidic tartness. Medium bodied, creamy texture, soft carbonation and overall a very effective stout.

Det här var inte alls dumt, smaken var komplex och lite spretig med toner av choklad, kaffe, sötma och bär. Kroppen var okej men balansen satt inte helt på plats.

I like it. Not used to Scottish stouts. So seemed a little strong at first, but went down well.

Erzengel (3545) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2014 Tiefschwarze Farbe, angenehm malziger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist malzig-vollmundig-sehr süffig und leicht süßlich. Zum Hauptteil kommt eine angenehme volle Röstmalznote hinzu, die sich sehr angenehm mit dem malzig-herben Bier verbindet. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang anhaltend, sehr schön herb und dabei schön röstmalzig-trocken.
→ Leckeres Stout, dem man die 7% nicht anschmeckt. Nicht zu süß und schön röstmalzig-herb!

Butelka 0.5L. Czarne, piana jasnobeżowa, obfita, głównie dorbnopęcherzykowa, średniotrwała. W aromacie: mleczna czekolada, palony słód ale jakby lekko wędzony i kawa. Ogólnie delikatny, słodki, przyjemny, lekko chlebowy również. W smaku kawowe, metaliczne (jony żelaza - pozytywny test skórny) czekoladowe, lekki alkohol, chlebowe. Nie jest bardzo mocno palone i ma nuty chlebowe przez co przypomina porter. Goryczka średnia+ zwłaszcza chmielowa. Dobre piwo przypominające porter. Gdyby nie wyczuwalna metaliczność byłoby bardzo dobre. No i jak na 7%ABV alkohol zdecydowanie za bardzo wyczuwalny.

330ml bottle from Beers of Europe, shared with Ashton McCobb. Pours dark brown, near black, thin beige head. Aromas are milk chocolate and... well... nothing else. Taste has a nuttiness, but mostly chocolate. Lacks roastiness and depth for a 7%er. OK.

AshtonMcCobb (2916) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 7, 2014
33cl bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - opaque black olive, nice creamy head. Nose - milk chocolate develops as the head dissipates. Taste - good chocolate and hazelenut note. Appearance - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long elegant finish. Overall - this improved the further I took it. Not the 7% it’s suppsed to be.
