3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Warning!. incredibly inconsistent beer. A good bottle - great chocolate/vanilla aroma with a full bodied Irish stout flavour with again a slight hint of chocolate , with lovely smooth palate and dry coffee finish.... A bad bottle - don’t even feckin talk to me. This rating is judged on a good batch.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2014 Interessantissima stout. Come tutte quelle dello stesso stile, presenta buone note di tostato, di cioccolato e del caramello, ma in questa si nota un deciso affumicato niente male. Purtroppo, più la si beve, più l’affumicato si sente di meno

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaska från SB. Julöl 2013. Kolsvart, högt beige skum. Stora rostade aromer och smaker. Kraftig, söt snarare än kärv men ok balans och funkar till mat med kaffe, choklad, karamell, mörkt bröd och lätt kryddigt. Bra djup i smakerna, lätt beska. Trevlig.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Tallinna Kaubamaja food department (€ 2,15) in May 2014. Black with a hint of chestnut brown; consistent darkish beige head. The distinctly vinuous aroma is bursting with strong coffee and sweetness, kind of like a vanilla and chocolate ice cream cocktail mixed with 2 shots of espresso, a handful of dark smoked fruits and some plum liqueur. It’s also a bit earthy, dirty, smoky, more as it warms. Tase is sweet chocolate, well roasted coffee and bitter hops; finish is on the bitter side, dry and ’grainy’. Body’s surprisingly timid, goes well with the rather sharp and sparkly carbonation. Mouthfeel is soft and a bit oily. Overall it’s somewhat more exciting (and way more sweeter) than Celtic but they’re both good after a hard day’s work or dinner. Celtic maybe with dessert, this here instead of one.
