3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Mes rate. Bottle from Kris Wines.
Incidentally, this cost me a very reasonable £3.00 hats off to Kris. Black body with a thin beige head. Pleasant fruity snout with plenty of the Premiant hops showing. Similar flavour. A little thin in the mouth and I’m certain the hops are not really the right choice for a stout like this. Whatever, minimal complaints aside this is a decent bright fruity stout with an interesting citric character. In all honesty, it drinks very much like a black IPA. Decent but I’ve had much better from Menno.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours out deep black with ruby hue, classic tight DM head. Nose is delicate, body of the beer is fab for a mild, nice rounded mouthfell, light but not weedy, malty, choc, coffee, just a great quaffer. If you’re after a light but tasty stout fill your boots.

Bottled 33cl (bottled 07.04.2010)
Thanks Edo! Dark almost opaque brown color, medium-sized brown head. Coffee beans, ash and some cooked vegetables in the nose. Body and mouthfeel is quite watery. Light roasted coffee beans flavor, hints of De Molen yeast. This is like a watered down version of some De Molen stronger stouts. Pleasant but kind of no use beer.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. A black beer with a whitish head. I really didn’t get on with this. Horrifically over carbonated. A roasty aroma with lactic notes and fruity roasts in the mouth. But it’s all so ordinary and the carbonation makes it such a struggle to drink. Really doesn’t work.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Botella. Very alive, good thing I was close to a sink! Pours a black colour with a huge well lasting light brown creamish bubbly head. Aroma of roasty malt, dark fruits and some chocolate. Ok mouthfeel. Roasted malt dominates the flavour along with some chocolate and coffee, a pleasant bitterness and some sweetness. Bit thin but flavourful.
