COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cold Boy Stout is a classic, traditional Stout Ale. Complex taste with a rich and full body. It may be dark in appearance but inspired by the pure nature in Norway, we have designed a surprisingly crisp ale with a full bouquet of crisp fruits, spices and floral aromas. A stout is for the true connoisseur.

Bottle (kindly shared by omhper!). Very deep ruby red colour, close to black with a small brown head. Aroma is coffee, mild toasted nuts, some toffee and slight burnt wood. Flavour is coffee, burnt wood, some ashes and mild nuttyness as well. Pleasantly biting carbonation making the stout feel very fresh. Long nutty and roasted coffee in the aftertaste.

50cl bottle from Rema, Askim. Very dark brown with a reddish hue, almost black with a rather small, beige head. Aroma of roasted malt with licorice, chocolate and coffee with some smoky notes. Just lightly sweet, with fairly mild, but pleasant flavours. Finish is quite dry and bitter. Well balanced beer and very pleasant to drink.

Cunningham (4324) - Halden, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2012
Black colour with a small tan head. Leaves a nice lacing. Chocolate and light roasted malt aroma. Medium body with a mild sweetness. Round mild oily texture with a dry finish. Dominant licorice flavour. Light roasted malt and chocolate. Some light smoked notes? Nah, when the beer got warmer the small smoked note vanished. It should maybee have been opposite.
It is a nice solid product....but....clear bottles? Feels very strange.
[Bottle from Roma in Askim, Norway]
