2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Flaske 0,33l kjøpt på Systembolaget i Kiruna. Dyp brunrød farge. Nesten svart. Høyt lysebrunt kremaktig skum som fester seg til glasset. Forsiktig aroma av ristet malt. Smaken var en skuffelse: Den led nok under inntrykkt av mitt forrige øl - som var en mye bedre stout! Denne er OK men ordinær. Litt kaffe og ristet malt og en tørr bitterhet. Helhetsinntrykket er imidlertid ganske kjedelig.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle in Belgrade. Surprisingly strong roast coffee, earthy notes. Much stronger flavor than I remember from draft guinness, harsher too. Tart, bitter and dry. Large foamy head with chocolate acid on the nose. Quite nice.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2009 Bottle from Systembolaget. Black beer with beautiful light brown head. Aroma is quite rich with coffee, roasty maltines and several other tastes I can’t describe. Very enjoable dry stout!

330ml bottle. Dark brown color with rich creamy white foam as usual in irish beers. Nice coffe-grain malt taste fulfilling beer thirst. Pretty good for a dry stout and can easily be found here in greece.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown/black colour, thick, creamy small head that is beige, and lots of lacing.
Aroma is rather subtle, but has both roasted notes and notes of coffee and chocolate and a cler prescence of hops in it.
Flavour is full of coffee a bit of smoke and a crisp hoppy bitterness that is appealing. The body is a bit weak though, this keeps it from getting a higher mark.
Mouthfeel is neither bad or good, just plain average.
This is a good stout, but there are loads and loads of better ones out there.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2011 Germany: Dark brown. Very rich, rocky head. Fruity, roasty aroma with lots of complexity. Dry, fruity, yeasty character. Light roasty in the dryish finish. A tasty variant. 7-4-8-4-15 = 3.8
Israel: Dark brown with a rocky head. Smells a little bit like a malta, but slight nuttiness to the caramel. A little bit thin, with vague caramel and not much roast. Not dissimilar to the Labatt’s version. 6-3-5-2-11 = 2.7
