2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Black beer with redbrown tints and a big nice mocca head. Aroma is very roasted and burnt with espresso, bitter chocolate, wood and some faint raisins. Taste is bitter burnt with some cold coffee, bitter chocolate and wood. Theres a slight note of dark fruits but what really shows is a harsh, dry, burnt bitterness that in my opinion is too unbalanced and could use some sweetness. The bitterness gets almost like shampoo or chewing on bitter fruit seeds and it makes the body feel a bit weak.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark brown colour with a rich head. Roasted, somewhat smoked aroma with notes of chocolate. Somewhat thin mouth feel. Flavour starts of quite roasted with notes of coffee but soon gets really hoppy with notes of shampoo. A bit unbalanced.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Stort halvsmutsigt skum.
Lite halvspritig doft.
Extremt tunn vätska, men tydliga rostade toner. Smaken är väl ok men den blir alldeles för tunn.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. This stout is hard to put on the map. Its kind of a mix between an american porter and a english stout. Elegantly creamy and well balanced, still kind of hoppy with some coffe beans bitterness aswell. Slightly smoked. KInd of thin for its 6,8ABV, but that also adds to its drinability.

Pours black with a nice foamy head. Aroma has hints of chocolate and coffee. Taste is pretty roasted but the body is kinda light and the finish is pretty bland. Alcohol burns through a bit too much.
