3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle just in from Lueken Liquors. Is this how the brewer intended it? Maybe something more hoppy. As a dry stout, pretty decent, more of a light shwartzbier, with a muted hop. Very good drinkability. Light black coloured body, almost no head. Medium mouthfeel. Mollasses and light roast smell.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rich cocoa, roasted coffee and nutty aromas. Appears a blackish brown with a massive tan foam at the top. Strongly carbonated flavors of dark roasted malts including chocolate, molasses, nuts, oats and subtle coffee. Full bodied with moderately complex malts. Overall, pretty well done. The carbonation is a bit overbearing to me though. It kind of takes away from the quality of the flavors. I’d give this a B rating.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
this stout had a black-brown pour with some dark ruby color at the bottom of the glass when held to a light, the pour made a one finger or less light tan and tan colored head, this beer was opaque and the only effervescence I saw was at the edges of the glass, it left nice spots, fingers and partial rings of lacing on the glass, there was no sediment in the bottle,
this drink had aromas of roasted malt, dry chocolate and caramel, a little coffee in the background,
there was a little malt and dark bread sweetness, and very little hops,
it had flavors of roasted malt, a little chocolate, and some coffee,
very little sweetness, the finish had some malt astringency that gave some bitterness,
the mouth feel was light and had a little creaminess to it,
a typical stout with what appears to be a little malt astringency on the palate.
