3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copenhagen Beer Festival 2010 - Dark brown in colour. Roasted and fruity aroma. The taste is malty, fruity and slightly roasted with notes of chocolate detected. A bit thin for the strength, but drinkable all the same.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy very dark copper brown with airy light tan head. Clear aroma of coffee beans, malt, and caramel. Roasty and bitter flavour of coffee beans, with faint notes of malt, caramel and nothing. Mildly bitter aftertaste. Rather thin body despite unnaturally high carbonation. Drinkable as just beer but really far from anything decent as stout.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very interesting stout. Not great looking, with a thin appearance of Cola. The aromas are raisins, honey, roasts and a touch of sweet sherry. Great combo on the flavour, with plenty of liquorice, chocolates, a roasted touch, burnt, but not too bitter, cranberry tartness and apple juice sweetness. Finish is a bit full of sherry. The palate is rather thin for a stout, but this is really nice beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 330 ml. Poured into a snifter at home, ABV 5.8%. New country tick.
Very dark brown colour on the body, with a good sized beige head, thick, with okay retention, leaving medium lacing around the glass.
Lots of roasted malts on the aroma with notes of coffee,
Taste has also lots of roasted malts. Cold coffee from the beginning, the coffee flavour becomes more intense on the finish and on the aftertaste, with nice bitterness. A little bit metallic at first but nothing to ruin the experience.
On the body is thin, with good carbonation. Not very dry palate.
Overall a quite good stout.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle picked up at Rudat in Dortmund. It pours with a clear mahogany body that supports a tan head. The aroma is full of odd mineral notes, molasses, apples and thin watered down chocolate. The taste comes across thin and mineral like where light sweet molasses and chocolate gently surface just as apple like ester do as well. Hmm.

Thanks to erzengel for the bottle! Pours dark brown with orange highlights and a tan head. Smell is roasted malt, chocolate, caramel, nuts. Taste is similar with a dry roasty finish. Light in body and a tick less than average carbonation level. Pretty nice stuff.

33cl bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. Very dark in the glass, intense roasted smell. The beer starts very dry, malty. Nice and as expected. The main part is full of dry malt, roasted aroma, slightly sour and nice bitter. The aftertaste is long, dry, bitter and full of roasted aroma.
--> Great scandinavian stout! Not sweet, good drinkability and full of roasted malt.
