3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle. Strongly roasty malt aroma, some dark chocolate, espresso and faint prune, just lots of roast to be found here. Dark brown-black color, with a lightly foamy, uneven head, and some dark brown highlights around the edges of the glass. Flavor is strongly roasty and coffeeish, with semi-sweet chocolate, faintly peppery yeast spice, moderate bitterness and drying at the finish. Effervescent and fairly light on the palate, body is medium. Pretty tasty overall. Very roasty beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black. Fine beige head and lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, toffee, dark chocolate and coffee. Same in taste, and with lots of coffee balanced with a good bitterness. Long aftertaste, with roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate and bitterness. Light mouthfeel, making the drinkability high. Complex and interesting.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
@ Havregatan. Bottle (330 ml) from Ölbutikken, Copenhagen (25 DKK). Roasted malty and quite fruity with yeasty and light spicy notes, medium body with an oily texture. The finish is dry and bitter with fruity and roasted notes. Not much of a stout, but a nice beer anyway.

Tasted at tap on 04/06/2014. Black opaque colour with white-off head. Aroma dominates for roasted malts and coffee. Medium dry coffee taste. The problem is the intensity not as hard as it should be. Next one please!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle from Kihoskh @ home, 4/6-14. Best by: january 2015.
App: Black with clear brown edges, big erupting brown and a bit fizzy head. No lace.
Aroma: Roasty and ashy with a sweet bottom layer of burnt sugar, malty notes of dark bread, licorice and anise. There’s also some vague fruity notes and a yeasty gluey tone of wax cloth coming and going. It’s a belgian stout alright.
Taste: Pretty dry and roasty ashy with a pretty high bitterness of burnt pine needles and wood. There’s also a slight acidity to it reminding me of sour coffee. Vague fruity notes.
Palate: Medium bodied with soft carbonation and soft texture.
Overall: Yup, Belgian stout. And not a very elegant such. Dry, ashy and acidic and without any real depth. Pretty boring.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Pours an inky blank, with a huge rocky khaki head which slowly fades, leaving good lacing. Nose is dark roast malt, with a hint of sourness. Taste is all malt up front, with a surprisingly dry finish, with a touch of sourness. Very refreshing.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle served in a Struise glass. Pours a thin black liquid with a bubbly, beige head. Dark red when held up to the light. Too much carbonation for and the mouthfeel is watery. Only taste that is evident of any note is coffee and maybe a hint of chocolate. Quite a poor example and to me a huge disappointment.
