3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
300ml bottle - thanks Martjoobolut!
Black, tight tan head, pretty filigree of lacing. Slightly muddy aroma, some nice esters. Taste also estery, nicely roasty. Finish has a decent bitterness. However, there’s a dirtiness I’m no fan of too. Did cover the alcohol reasonably, I guess. 3.3 seems like an overrate.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer pours delicately with a firm chocolate milk head and a nose that is smaller than expected. Malty tones and some coffee is present. The taste is also rich and full of coffee notes along with some slight hops. Very light metallic taste remains also for the palate. Palate is not to long but still not bad.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.33l bottle. Black body, light beige head. Aroma of caramel, orange, grapes, elderflower and cocoa. Taste of caramel, cocoa, pine, chocolate, grapefruit and grassy hops. It has very limited roasted malt characher, that is quite suprising from a stout. I still like it though.
