3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The looks of the beer are perfect. It has that ultimate stout appearance. The color of the beer is pitch black on the eye. A strong light reveals the typical ruby red glow of beautiful stout. The beer looks a bit cloudy, but it’s so dark, that it’s hard to tell. On top of the beer a nice layer of soft, creamy, almond colored foam is formed. The foam is very sturdy and doesn’t collapse. It forms a delicious soft layer. The smell is a little mild. There are more aromatic stouts available. There is nice fresh hoppy aroma, containing some aromas of fruits. It smells a bit of grapefruit. There is also a lovely bitter and salty aroma of roasted barley. The different aromas are delicious, I wished it was stronger. The taste is richer. It has the same lovely flavors. Roasty slightly salty and bitter flavors together with lovely sweet and bitter hop flavors. There are better stouts, but it definitely ain’t bad. The palate is good. The beer has a nice amount of tingle to it. Nice.

Ciemny barwa. Piana gesta wolno opadajaca. W smaku palony slod. Mila goryczka. Srednio nasycone. Ciezko cos wyczuc w aromacie poza palonym slodem.
