black like used automotive oil, with a warm, rich brown head, moderately fine, a cm thick, settles to an attractive film a couple mm thick. Aroma is coffee and hazelnuts, slightly sweet maple syrup and candy, some herb, soil, and forest floor. Body is medium-light with a very creamy mouthfeel. Fine, moderately intense carbonation. Flavor is Earthy wet leaf, coffee twinges the back of the palate (like a dry stout), herbs, and a slight, warm nuttiness in the finish. Hint of fruity (cherry) English yeast flavor as it warms. There aren’t many export stouts I’ve had in the last two years to compare this with. Reminds me of Guiness with a more complex, earthy flavor and some more sweetness. The candy, maple syrup, hazelnut notes in the aroma and the top-notch creamy-light body are the defining characteristic of this beer for me. Dank leaves are interesting, but don’t serve to make the beer more appetizing.

scurissima con schiuma marrone a grana grossolana,molto persistente..aroma tipico da stout (quasi imperial) ma il tostato era meno forte e si sentivano tantissimo i lieviti belga..gusto un pochetto troppo di liquirizia a centro degustazione,ma l’amaro finale (comunque non eccessivo per essere il Nugget) bilanciava il tutto..nemmeno troppo carbonata,è andata via con piacere!

Black, strong brown head. Some sweetness and roastiness, strong chocolate and coffee. Nuts, chocolate and coffee - sweet more than bitter. Finishes chocolatey bitter. Very nice.

Thick deep colored head, actually still has sediment in the bottom. Charcoal taste with chocolate finishes. Some oak. Heavy but not overly filling. Would have again.

JBPortland (1004) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 21, 2014
12oz bottle pours dark brown black with big 3 finger foamy head. Nose has dried dark fruit, old leather, blackberry, dusty dark bitter chocolate and ash. Taste is similar with nice light mouthfeel brought on by high carbonation, some grape, blackberry, ash, leather, bitter chocolate dust, earth. Finish is dry with some fruity notes, coffee, dirt, and bitter ashy cocoa.

Rating #1022, flaske fra Toft Vin. Flot brun med flot skum. Ristet duft med træ. Smag med træ,ristet malt, vanille, desværre en del metal. OK og ret meget præget af træ.
