3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle; black, brown at the edges, very thin patchy tan head; aroma of chocolate malt; tastes of lightly roasted malt, juicy blackcurrant and chocolate; quite bitter; has a dry finish with a decent hop presence; it has a dusty quality throughout; possibly a little thin, but a decent stout at the weaker end of the strength spectrum.

Dpbry stout. Czarny jak smoła i prawie bez prześwitów. Tylko 4% alc a piwo mocno rozgrzewa. Gożki i wytrawny posmak czekolady i piernika świątecznego. Piana niestety mała i pęcherzykowa
