3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l, at Ølhuset Stockholm, Helsinki, 20140426) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized, lightly brown and it disappeared quite quickly. Aroma had liquorice, burnt malts and saltiness. Palate was full bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were burnt malts, liquorice, sweetness, chocolate and bitterness. Aftertaste was burnt and bitter. A rather burnt imperial stout. Not bad but not such that would please me a lot.

Flaska från SB. Brunsvart vätska. Doften börjar bra med kaffe, kakao och röda bär men sedan framträder en träig sädighet. Inte en favorit.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours out of the bottle in a deep dark colour with very low head and medium body. Nose of malt and roast. Taste of malt, woods, autumn campfires, leaves, bittersweet chocolate and bitter coffee. Quite high bitterness. Finished off firstly like bitter medicine, but got better with air and temperature. Still no masterpiece and not quaffable at all. Below average.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from balderbitch - thank you very much. Well, this a strong Stout with a bit of skunk and bit smoke in the start. Very bitter indeed with only a bit sweetish chocolate moments. Very unpleasant and very, very special. Would not appreciate a second one.
