2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours with decent white head that vanishes quickly. Thin taste and its more carbonated than I like in a stout.

Bottle. Pours hazy very dark copper brown with stable off-white head. Sweetish aroma of malt and caramel. Balanced, bitter sweet taste of malt and roasted coffee beans. Dark chocoćate finish. A nice thing. Would be even better if it wasn’t so richly carbonated.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
This is close to a Catastrophe!
My Favorite Coffeestout has been watered down to something indistinct.
This former fine beer with it creamy think brown foam and the fine aroma of chocolate, coffee and malt and the clinging style, has been reduced to a watered out brown beer - foam is not creamy, but big-bubbled nearly white and the former strong aroma is nearly gone. The former thick black beer can now be seen through (the chestnut brown color is however beautiful, but should not be found in a stout).
The buy out from the Danish Low-Cost-Beer giant Harboe did not become this GB product well - what a shame.
