4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Decent stout, tried on draft. The flavor was very coffee and chocolate related, but there wasn’t as much complexity as I’ve come to expect from a stout of this caliber.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33 cl bottle bought at Ølkonsortiet in Aalborg.
Poured into an oversized snifter at home.
Pours black with a small, tan head. Really nice warm aroma dominated by sweet and dark fruits, along with molasses and brown sugar. A bit too much alcohol in the aroma for me to give the top mark.
Well balanced taste between sweet and bitter, with a full, sweet aftertaste that leaves a nice warming sensation.
A really good imp. stout in my book, that leaves me wanting more...

Bottle thanks to my brother. A pitch black body is topped with a light orange brown head. Lots of molasses and dark chocolate. There is also some prune. The taste is cola ans tobacco. Prunes and smoke in the backend. An ashy finish with hints of anise. Rough with the booze burn.
