4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Appearance: pours a black, rich body with a mediocre head. Head is brown with large bubbles and some lacing of the glass.
Nose: burnt malt, dark chocolate, coffee,
Mouthfeel: thick, a little creamy, not as thick as Surly’s Darkness.
Taste: Similar to Bell’s Expedition Stout with plenty of sweet dark chocolate, rich coffee notes, but more smoke/burnt notes than the Expedition Stout. ...Afterwhile, it’s like drinking rich coffee mixed with sweet dark chocolate. Still delicious.
Overall: Very good, delicious. Drink whenever in the mood.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pitch black, minimal sized black head disappeared quickly. Aroma is dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee. Cocoa bitter notes with sweetness, just great. Really thick texture, full body, flat carbonation. Long cocoa finish. Awesome.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
0,33 bottle shared by mortlach during a great private tasting at my place in Rome-Italy. Thank you. This was a real gem. Pours black oil-like with a dark brown texture, medium brownish coffee foamy head. Nose: terrific! Dark chocolate, mild coffee and a soft feel of alcohol. Pleasant. Mouth: dark chocolate all the way moving to Nescafé with an elegant and sort bitter (neutral) end. The toasted malts and the predominant peculiarities of this beer nerve turn into disturbing (really unique for such a style). I would like to have it with a tiramisu.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
파운더스 브루어리-브렉& 스타우트 8.3% ABV 베이직하게 이것저것 균형잡고 튀어나오면서 도수때문에 알콜기가 높이 치솟는 맥주. 널뛰기 하다 생각이상으로 높이 날아올라 머릿속에 피가 몰리고 빠져나가는듯,
레이트비어 백점인데, 뭐랄까 정전같은 레시피의 맥주라 그런것 같다. 벨런스에 무게를 둔다면 그렇겠으나 스타일이라면? 그런식으로 보면 노스코스트 라스푸틴도 비슷한 계열. 대중레벨에선 벨런스에 박수, 오타쿠레벨에 개성에 박수, 레이트 비어의 이중잣대?
하긴 최상 수공예 오타쿠 계열은 이런 벨런스 다잡으면서 새로운 해석을 던지는 것같기도 하다. 이방인으로선 구하기도 힘든 하늘의 별따기 같은 맥주들. 이정도로 감지덕지 하겠습니다

Bold and caramel hints with deep stoutness. Not much of an aroma but a bold look as well.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a small white head. Nose is very much cocoa, chocolate and some coffee vanilla notes. Taste is chocolate, slight vanilla bitterness, coffee. Nothing super sexy jumps out but it’s a seriously well balanced beer. Never fails!!
