4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, bought at Vinens Verden, Odense. Pours fat oil black with a fine, large, creamy, cappucino head. Sweetish aroma actually, some chocolate and vanilla. Some slight coconut notes as well. Then a lot of coffee and roasted malts. Very nice. Lowish carbonation, nice mouthfeel. Flavour is incredibly well-balanced, lots of nice dark chocolate, some coffee and some definite bitterness. This is a world-class stout. Not extreme in any way, this is just perfect in balance. Just the way I like it.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Opaque brown/black color with a very impressive dark tan head. Aromas of dark roasted/toasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Medium plus body with very smooth and creamy carbonation. A touch of tar in the flavor, as well as dark roast (not burnt) malt, coffee, cacao and just maybe some floral/fruity hop. It’s very sturdy, and quite impressive. It actually seems to get fruitier with time. Brilliant. Reasonably dry too.
