Nearly black with a tan head that has a tinge of red. Light, sweet aroma that has notes of chocolate and milk. Somewhat weak palate. Smooth and sweet all the way through. No bitterness at all. Easy to drink, but nothing special.

TorbenJensen (1394) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2015
The foam is nougat colored and creamy. The aroma is gentle malty with weak mocha tones. The taste is a little time to develop in the mouth, but the wait is worth it. Weak mocha flavor blends bold with roasted malt and the mouth feeling is creamy. The finish is very little hoppy, but is instead delicate mocha-like with a little touch of English licorice. 3.8 percent for a stout does not sound like much, and it is not, but its flavors are very rich anyway.

MarkoNm (1894) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 9, 2015
Pours a dark brown with some red undertone, topped with a medium sized beige colored head. Malty aroma, biscuity, caramel and chocolate, perhaps some dark fruity notes. Taste is sweet and a bit bready, with significant soury notes.
