2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.33l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. A nice brown big head on top of a near black body. A bit low on the nose, but it has a strong alcohol influence on the nose. Faint sweet-roasted with a little bit of licorice and cold old coffee. Not horrible, more strange but not especially inviting. Doesn’t taste all that horrible either. It has a dry almost minerally thing going on. Softly roasted in the back and again some still cold coffee is present. Comfortable in a strange way, but have to say that I have had better stouts. Much better. 18.12.2013

O.K., nothing wrong with it…

Medium dark brown lasting head. Opaque black body. Vinegary chocolate aroma with earthy notes. Dry-acidic earthy chocolate taste but fuck it, this is infected and no way am I drinking any more of it. (0.3l draft at If Café, Budapest.)

Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Deep brown near-black body with a small caramel-hued head. Nose is caramel, burnt sugar, mild chocolate and hints of solvent-phenolic tones.
