3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black pour with a below average tan head that doesn’t really stick around for long. Leaves a nice lace. Chocolate fudge and licorice on the nose with some coffee and a light earthiness. A little light on the palate but the flavours are solid. Lots of coffee and a bit of chocolate. Pretty dry with a light bitterness in the finish.

Bottle, near black, ashy and red-fruity nose with treacle hints. Dry yet fruity, burnt caramel, hints of dark chocolate, a burnt bitterness and a long dry-bitter finish. Very impressive dry stout.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Classica stout, dai sentori tostati e di cioccolato. Si percepisce anche della frutta secca. L’amaro le fa da padrona.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(50 cl bottle from Dublin Airport shop; BBD: May 28th 2015) Pours black with plenty of creamy, tan head. Good retention and lace. Aroma is subtly toasted malt with hints of earthy hops. Oily almost creamy texture, medium body with soft carbonation and a roasted, semi-ascerbic finish. Flavour is mostly toasted malt with some ascerbic touches and a balancing bitterness. Very dry and practically no sweetness. Decent for the ABV but would have liked more taste.

Flaske 0,5 liter, dejlig blid stout, flot mørk/ næsten sort med lys beige skum, duft af ristet malt, ikke så kraftig aroma, god smag af stout (blandt andet lidt lakrids), men lige så god og mild den er (nem at drikke) , gør desværre også at den er lidt kedelig.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Tallinna Kaubamaja food department (€ 2,15) in May 2014. Pours slightly brownish black with a small light beige head. Aroma is an intense mix of roasted coffee beans, smoked plums, very dark chocolate, notes of bitter hops and some cocoa, also a wee bit metallic. Behind all that maybe even tiny hints of black olives and liquorice. Gets more smoky as it warms. Taste is cold espresso and chocolate, rather bitter, acidic, metallic. Body and carbonation is on-the-spot medium, the latter giving it an enjoyable crispness. Mouthfeel is soft and smooth. Finish is dry with a lingering aftertaste of coffee and somewhat bitter. Really enjoyable stuff!
