3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, very dark brown pour with garnet edges and a 3 finger, chunky tan head. Aroma is nutty, roasty and burnt fried bread, planty hops and interesting earthy, fruity notes. Flavor is roasted nuts, roast, char (something like normal roasty char, but with an underlying, though barely noticeable burnt vegetable oil taste), burnt peanuts, light char, light planty and herbal hops, smoke and some fruity and berry-like notes. Finishes with roast, char, leather, earth and fruity notes. Light body, dry slightly chalky feel throughout with a light carbonation. Pretty tasty, nice roasty kick for a 4.5% stout

Pours Pretty much pitch black with a nice rocky dark tan head and sparse lacing. Nose is roasty, dry, lite char, coco. Flavors exhibit the roast and coca flavors very nicely. Very dry, perfect for a dry stout. has a full body considering the ABV. Decent Full bodied stout. I will drink this again on this deployment.

Bottle. Very dark color, as a stout should be. Tastes of chocolate, coffee, roasted and a little bit smokey. Very drinkable, but a bit too flat for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Könnyed, szinte egyáltalán nem keserű, enyhe étcsokoládés jelleg, fűszeresség nem jellemző, inkább semleges íz.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Served in a snifter from a 500ml bottle. Pours almost black colour with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, prunes and slight coffee and chocolate notes. Taste is slightly nutty with notes of chocolate, coffee and prunes. Light to medium body with medium carbonation and silky texture. Not a complex one which makes it a very enjoyable session stout.
