It’s ok. For a stout - just ok. It’s like a good start for drinking stouts. It won’t strike you down by aroma neither by taste. It’s very calm in every way.

Tap. Pours black with thick creamy tan head. Aroma is pretty, roasty, dry. Taste is thin, very dry, a touch roasty, a little too thin for a stout. Okay.

12 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown, nearly black. Head is thick, creamy and leaves a thick sheet of lacing around the glass. Aroma is chocolate, cream and very subtle roast. Flavor is bittersweet chocolate and slight tang. M: Incredibly smooth and creamy. Thin bodied, alcohol is well masked.

Elsőként a dobozos változatával hozott össze a jószerencse, melynek krémes, cappucino-szerű habja annyira szép látványt nyújt, hogy rajzolni sem lehetne szebbet. Legszívesebben kezet ráztam volna a kis nitrogéngolyóval. Pörkölt, kávés aromájú, kissé vizes állagú, de rendkívül karakteres sör, enyhe édeskés beütéssel. Az ettől eltérő ízvilághoz szokott sörfogyasztók számára talán különösnek tűnik, mint ahogyan én sem éreztem teljesen a magaménak ezt az ízvilágot, bár selymessége kellemes, megjelenése pedig annyira magával ragadó, hogy bármikor képes lennék fogyasztani már csak azért is, hogy közben gyönyörködhessek benne. Az üveges változat esetében maradéktalanul teljesülnek a korábban leírtak azzal az árnyalatnyi különbséggel, ami a hab állaga és a csapolórendszer hiánya okozta eltérésből adódik.
