Can thanks to Victor, from Iceland! Thank you sir! Appearance - close to opaque black but with some red chinks around the bottom of the glass. A decent head that ends up thin. Nose - toffee to molasses, light liquorice. Taste - more sweet toffee. Palate - medium bodied with a tangy texture and a finish that is a bit sweet. Overall - a bit too sweet.

330ml bottle - shared by Marduk, thanks!
Sickly sweet malty aroma, some raisins, and caramel, even some cakey spiciness. Taste likewise, gets a bit of alcohol later. Finish sugary and sweet too. Do not recognise this as a stout, it’s a sweet spicy nonsense.

(Bottle 33 cl) Beautiful dark mahogany with a warm, reddish glow. Nice, creamy beige coloured head. Sweet, malty nose. Quite sweet with distinct notes of roasted malt. Pretty much no bitterness. Appears like a malt drink with added alcohol. 271105
