3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2015 (Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm, 24 Jan 2015) Black colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of chocolate, coffee, a touch of liquorice and black rye bread. Malty, roasted taste with coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and a generous roasty bitterness in the finish. Medium body, quite dry. Solid and well made stout, and the balanced alcohol level makes it highly drinkable. Very nice.

Cask @ Akkurat. Best thing about this beer is its smoothness. A creamy semi-roasted beer with just enough sweetness to keep it drinkable and interesting.

500ml bottle - I quite like this one. Black with a healthy beige foam that laces all the way through. The aroma has roasted malts and blackberries and a bit of coffee lurking there. A strong rich malty taste with chocolate and burnt toast and more rich fruits. A good body and a long finish. Slick and tasty. A very decent brew.
