2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into red wine glass (all they had) at an Ethiopian restaurant (Addis) in Richmond, VA. Sweet and raisiny aroma. Appearance is amber prune juice. Head is flimsy and dissipates rapidly with no lacing. Taste...well, it’s not a stout, so if I look at it like a stout, it sucks. It’s a prune/fig/raisin/vinegar flavor with a lousy finish. I rarely write these words, but it’s not worth finishing. I will leave it behind. Overall I would not have bought it except it was a beer I hadn’t tried before.

Poured from bottle, pours more of a dark amber brown than anything, wouldn’t think stout just looking at in in a glass, the aroma is of sweet malt and roast, the flavor is pretty weak, some sweetness at first with an off finish, metallic almost, meh.

Poured from 330mL bottle. Clear mahogany brown with dissipating beige head. Sweet malt, molasses, dates on the aroma. Caramel and dark fruit flavour with molasses. Very light watery body. Should not be called a stout.

This is honestly, my favorite beer I have ever tried. I travel internationally 9 months of the year and have gotten into the habit of trying local beers everywhere I go. Yes, I have even been to Ethiopia. I was so excited to find the Ethiopian restaurant near my home carries it. It is truly fabulous. Every friend I have brought to try this beer love it. It has a very special, unique taste, unlike any other beer. If you are really into beer, you may not appreciate its taste. If its hard for you to find a beer you love, then you’re going to dig this beer! REally, the best I’ve had, anywhere in the world. Its special!

Flaske jeg fikk gratis på Delirium, utgått på dato: kortvarig skum, og smaker som tynn, dårlig solbærsaft.

Bottle: I have tried to get this stout in Ethiopia so many times and end up getting a bottle at an Ethiopian place in Atlanta. It is thick and clearly has some non malt sugars in the mix.

Appearance is not of a typical stout, dark amber/sap color. Taste is hoppy. Decent mid taste with bit of after taste.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not really a stout. More similar to a scotch ale or even a barely wine. Very sweet with minimal carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Scotch Ale, not stout. Pours clear brown-red with a large tan creamy head that slowly dissipates with nice lacing. Strong caramel/molasses aroma. Flavor doesnt live up to aroma, sweet and malty but watery and a bit chemical laden. No bitterness at all. Light bodied
