4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear dark brown pour turns black in my tulip glass, magic! One finger creamy, light brown head turns foggy medium fast. Dry roasted aroma, slightly bitter, ash, coffee, bit camp fire, chocolate,nuanced. Great palate, soft, medium body, velvety but bitterness balances, semisweet, long roasted finish, dark chocolate also, spices come bit later, also salty licorice,lots of strong coffee in very long finish. Nuanced and lively, tasty, balanced, lots of character. Advent calendar beer 4. Advent Calendar is turning out to be excellent. Great stout!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Uba ja Humal in Tallinn. BB 06/2018; 9.5% ABV. Pours black with a thick tan head. The nose startles me at first, it’s beany and... kinda like rotten veggies. As that fades, thankfully quickly, it becomes luscious with dark bitter chocolate and strong quality coffee notes. Sweet. The flavour’s similar, sweet, bitter, very roasty and chocolaty, and the dark roast of the coffee beans comes across really nicely, finishing in a beany dryness (as you’d get when eating a roasted coffee bean dipped in 80% chocolate). Quite heavy in the mouth, with very little but active carbonation. Dangerously easy-drinking. Very nice brew!

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2015 Very dark brown. Dark chocolate, dark fruit and rich dark coffee/espresso. Thin to medium feel but sticky sweet and creamy. Carbonation is fine and compliments the flavors. I love espresso beer! Backlog from 2014/04/02.
Ik vind dit zo lekkerrrrrrrr! Backlog from 2015/10/15.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a 23/11/2015. Pours the darkest brown with a biggish tan head. Has a pleasanr chocolate and coffee aroma. The flavour is very bold and intense, with masses of expresso and sweet and bitter, creamy chocolate, with some vanilla and a touch of spice in the background . There a light to medium roasty bitterness at the end which balances things out very nicely. The palate is really creamy and the carbonation soft. A truly wonderful coffee stout.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
dark brown colour, minimal beige-is off-white head; aroma and taste is dominated by coffee with herbal liqueur and woody notes, as well as some dried fruits and spicy alcohol (and, as it is warming, some syrupy sweetness is also appearing in the taste); good!
