330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
Nice chocolate creamy filled cake aroma. Some slightly pooey hint. Basically black, tiny tan head. Smooth palate, some carbonation. Rough roast, dry, ashy. messy. Finish harsh and earthy, leaves me desperate for another beer, definitely not the same again, I want my thist quenched, rather than this.

Very dark reddish brown, almost black. Smells of toasted malts and powdered coffee. A lot of chocolate taste, some toasted notes and a good amount of sweetness. Very light hops, good aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark brown, small to average and fully diminishing light brown head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, light roasted malt, some (milk)chocolate. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some (milk)chocolate. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, light roasted malt and some (milk)chocolate, faint hoppyness. Interesting but too sweet and “milky” for my taste.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of milk chocolate, very pleasing. Clear, very dark ruby black color, oversized rocky tan head, bands of lace. Taste is mild chocolate malt that, while quite satisfying, just isn’t big enough to make this a winner. It is easy to quaff, and has no deficits. Still, comes up good, but short.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours in black body with high creamy tan head that’s gone within few minutes. The aroma has roasty character right in front, dominated by the roasty, in the background, there is some dark chocolate, cold coffee notes. Taste has medium roasty sweetness with very light earthy bitterness, buttery sweet notes with coffee character. Not as much chocolate as I’d like but still highly drinkable. After taste has some acidity. Body is light, carbonation medium, quite dry.

Chocolate, coffee, roasted malt and some fruit. Dark brown to black with a red tint. Tan head. Medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a lively carbonation. Overall a good stout, but the carbonation should be softer in my opinion.
