2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Thanks Sigmund.
Almost black colour, with a steady, creamy head. The aromas from dark malts, that are almost non-existing, are overpowered by milk. Not much toast here. In flavour, same problem. Feels very light in roastiness, and the milkiness is very present, almost acidic. Mouthfeel feels like it’s been diluted. Bitterness is very low. Naaah....

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Henriks Øl og Vinstove, Bergen. Almost black with a creamy beige head. Sweet molasses aroma, hints of roast. Semi-sweet, good roast. Not bad, but more milk stout character than dry stout in my opinion.

Black with a beige head.
Aroma is roasted malt. Flavor is roasted too, a great sourness, and it feels great. Surprising good.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle served lightly chilled at Henrik Øl & Vinstove in Bergen. Tan, bubbly head over jet black body. Spotty laceworks on the glass. Plain dark malty aroma. Roasted, almost burnt, taste of coffee malts with a touch of bitter chocolate to the ending. A bit diluted mouthfeel and mediocre for the style, but, nonetheless, drinkable (18.06.2009).

7 April 2009. Tap at Cardinal. This was a large surprise. Black, with delicious brown head. Almost like the favourite Guiness. A bit more alcohol and a bit more carbonized. Very smooth, with a roasted aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It is black with a light brown and creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, light chocolate and spice. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of roasted malt, light smoke and coffee and the finish is dry with light notes of citrus. It is a nice stout with a rather low ABV.

Bottle. [thank you Emil/sk8viking]
Pours black with red edges. A fizzy, off-white head on top. Sweet aroma, rye bread, light roasted and some tart berries. Medium carbonation, okay mouthfeel. Flavour starts with quite a bit of metal, but it gets less as it breathes. Subdued sweetness with a touch of tartness. A fine, long, dry and roasted aftertaste.
