I guess it should be a stout, but - sadly - it is too weak. I didn’t found any aroma, but the taste is there, still softly, but it is present.

Bottle. Aroma of dry coffee and roasted malt. Taste is quite dry and bitter, with roasted coffee and a bit of dark cacao. Very drinkable, bit like a stout saison.

HammerTroll (691) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 23, 2015
Daaark brown color and huge tan head, kind of thin, thou. Aroma is chocolate, some hops. Taste is great, chocolate, vanilla, nice hoppy flavor and hoppy bitterness, even some smoke. Thin body (shame for that), disappointingly watery, average carbonation. Finish is again great, roasty, hoppy with long coffee aftertaste. Could be hell of a Stout if it is more complex.
(Vrutak 0,33l bottle)

dnicolaescu (1054) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - FEB 19, 2015
BOTTLE 33 CL. Though it is quite dark and labelled as a stout - not much roasted malts there. You get some warm roast grains in the aroma, and subtle ashes in the finish. But the green grassy and lemony hops are quite strong, on the other hand, as is the „Belgian” yeasty spice. The bitterness is also strong, but it remains somewhat uncovered in the thin finish. The thin body is its only weakness, but eve that is acceptable for a session strength beer. In the end, it more a hybrid between a spicy Belgian stout and a hoppy ale. Very nice.
