Intensiv hopfiger Antrunk, zu gleichem Maße aber auch malzig mit deutlichen Schokoladennoten. Wenig fruchtig, die starke Malzigkeit wird durch den Hopfen ergänzt. Intensiv, gut! 11/13/12/11/10/12

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2014 500ml bottle (Angleterre, Helsinki) (6:5:7:4:14=3.6)
Nice roasty aroma. Mellow rich body. Smooth body, but carbonation a little higher than I like, swirls away though. Nice nuttiness. Not sure where this is aiming as it’s not a black IPA. I guess it’s a good hoppy stout though.Good balance between full stout roast and bitter hops. Aromatics not so extreme, barely fighting the other aspects, not a self-selling aroma at all. But still a nice beer.
Rerate: Keg (Pudel, Tallinn) (7:5:7:4:14=3.7)
Very similar to bottle, but a bit more aroma, both roast and pungent spicy hops. Taste matches that exactly. Covers 7.5% very well. Lovely hoppy stout. We did a comparison to Dark Arts, which we’d previously given 3.7, and while that one smelt better, this clearly tasted better. Overall, the preference was here.

Bottle @ Papsø. A bit cloudy, dark brown appearance with a tan head. A little minty, mild piney, dark chocolate, lightly roasty aroma. Fairly roasty, a bit charred, spruce/piney, somewhat bitter flavor and overall pretty solid.
