3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a viscous-looking, close to black body with a small, medium brown head that laces the glass well. Sweet, malty, roasted and strong aroma of dark caramel, dark chocolate and a touch of generic fruits. Strong flavour of dark caramel and chocolate, with coffee, fruits, vanilla and ash in the back, all encapsulated in a lactic whole. Moderate sweet and moderate bitter taste. Mid-bodied, oily and smooth texture, soft carbonation. Splendid!
[33 cl bottle, from Vinmonopolet Aker Brygge, Oslo]

The name says it all! Too Cream! This is one of my top five favorite stouts. Very smith and creamy. Just a hint of smokiness. Just great!

From bottle. Pours black with a small dark beige head and little to no lacing on the glass. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malts. Taste has a gentle sweetness, chocolate, roasted malts, and only a hint of bitterness from the hops. Creamy medium mouthfeel. This is a delicious and easy to drink stout.

Sorry, but a "stout"? A "SWEET stout"??? Really?????
Hard to get any head out of this, nevertheless it stays OK. The mouth-feel lacks creamyness and reminds more of a porter than anything else. So does the coffee notes and the (much too strong bitterness). Nevertheless, not a bad beer in terms of taste and length, but missed the style totally, imo.

Color negro intenso opaco con media cabeza de espuma beige perdurando un fino cerco hasta el final; en nariz aromas a chocolate negro, licor de cerezas, malta tostada y avellana; en boca entrada media con sutil amargor que va tornando a ligero dulce, siguen notas a humo y azúcar candy; cuerpo medio y carbónico ligero, trago corto y largo pos gusto en una compleja y equilibrada cerveza, excelente

Pours black with a frothy dark brown head. Looks wonderful.
Coffee, licorice in the nose.
Taste is coffee, chocolates, licorice. Some dough, perhaps. I don’t know what else to call that.
