4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Draught at the brewery. Black with copper tint, strong beige head, lasts long, lacing not as strong as on smoked porter. Coffee with milk, nuts, some toffee aroma, dark fruits. Sourness and sweetness combined, coffee-like aftertaste, very full body, creamy, delicious.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Tallinna Kaubamaja (€ 4,35) in Oct 2014. BB 29.08.15. The memorable label reminds me of Sendak’s "Where the Wild Things Are". Colour: dark brown, black in the glass. Head: tan, thick, stays, leaves some lacing. Aroma: dark bitter chocolate and toffee, slightly ashy roastiness, a bit of hops also detectable. Taste: roasty with moderate chocolaty sweetness, also a presence of herbal-bitter hops, especially in the finish, though it ends with quite some roastiness as well. Very nicely balanced and smooth, low to medium carbonated, slightly sticky mouthfeel with some dryness. Overall a very nice Stout... although forgettable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Borut, thanks! Lots of moccha though more on the chocolate than the coffee side, a vanilla tobacco note and some cherries. Good aroma and flavour depth, slightly chewy body and soft mouthfeel. Light bitter, light sweet. Full of flavour yet laid back. Great stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle in Ljubljana. Pours dark brown with a slowly dissipating light brown head. The aroma is a definite coffee grind impression, roasted to burnt malt, bakers cocoa, earthy hop notes. Some sweetness from the oats in the flavour but predominately bitter, dry, roasted malt. Nice smooth mouthfeel. I had beer geek breakfast earlier tonight, this poor bastard had a hard act to follow.
