4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a lovely dark brown color, almost black, topped with a decent beige colored head. Very mild roasted malts aroma, some chocolate and caramel too, but very mild. Later on, some coffee notes. The taste starts sweet, with pleasant notes of chocolate, some coffee (midl) and roasty feel. Some sweet and fruity notes in the aftertaste. Altogether, a very mild but delicious stout. Really surprised by this one.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Many thanks to CH-303 for this bottle! Very strong gushing.... doesn’t seem to be a reliable brewery.... The beer itself starts malty-warming, nice roasted hints. The mainpart is sweetish-roasted, hints of sourness. Not a bad combination... The aftertaste is long, roasted-malty, quite sweetish and not too bitter. Wouldn’t it be such a gusher, it could really be recommendable...

A terrific Swiss stout. Pouring pitch black with a candylike head. Smells burnt toast and chocolate. Milky texture, soft, velvetlike, tastes of coffee, milky chocolate and laid down plums? Good ashy finish. Gorgeous beer!
