3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours black with barely any highlights at all, just some brown where the light shines through. Massive tan head that stays for ages, good amount of lacing. Aroma is subdued at first due to the massive foamy head, but there are definitely some burnt malts in here which gives it a slightly acidic character, some dark chocolate, and something a bit metallic. Smells like it’ll be sweet on the tongue. Fairly straight forward flavourwise, burnt notes and chocolate. Some sourness from the burnt malts. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation. Decent, drinkable stout, nothing incredible.

Dark brown in colour with shades of hazelnut. Fluffy coffee colour head. At the nose is soft, pleasant roasty notes are mixed with milk chocolate aromas. In mouth is medium-high bodied, smooth and rich but at same time drinkable, doesn’t tire your palate, thanks also at a light a slippery after taste. Recommended

Quite a mediocre stout, pleasant but nothing special. Has a light smooth palate and quite a bitter taste.

Clear, brown, there are some small particles (hop?), almost no head. Aroma: coffee beans, cocoa, bread. Dry coffee taste, but there’s cloying sweet from lactose. Low bitterness, but finish is quite hoppy. Overall tiring.

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2016 Tap@Taphouse. Pours a very dark brown with small offwhite head. Aroma is sweet and roasted, slight coffee and a hint of lactose. Taste is a round sweet blend of light chocolate, roasted malt and a hint of lactose. A bit thin and less lactose for the style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2016 Drank 27-1 in Malden with Marieke (working on my new year’s resolutions ;)). Taste is a bit disappointing. Slightly milk chocolate, but quite neutral and watery as well.
Edit: a bit higher after drinking with Rik 02-07.
