3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
35cl bottle from Systembolaget. Black with a tan head. Roasty, sweet milk-chocolate aroma. Flavor is a lot of chocolatey, sweet roasted malts, maybe a little coffee, but not very bitter overall. Palate is full and creamy. Really dug the milk-chocolate.

From bottle. Nice, dark color. Small head. Had a definite caramel taste which was OK. It wasn’t a bad flavor, it just that there’s not much else to it. I did enjoy how silky this beer was.

on tap at Taco Mac (beer of the month - dec ’07). wonderful stout! I’ve been anxious to try this one and I am glad I did finally. a dark black and full of chocolate and coffee aromas. outstanding palate... it is bitter on the tip of the tongue and smooth and creamy on the sides and back. medium to full body and quite delicious. highly recommended stout.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours brown tinted with some reds. Small dark tan head. Aroma is chocolate malt all the way with yeast undertones. Flavors of chocolate malt prevail over all. Smooth on the mouth, but a bit light for a stout. Decent chocolate malt aftertaste. Very easy to drink, almost wouldn’t call it a stout. But I liked the flavor so much it punched it up a bit.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Quite reasonable aroma, but visibly light in color for a sout. Toasty but quite fizzy and somewhat watery. Reasonable flavor but as roasted as you would expect even from a sweeter style stout. Average. Mediocre even. Starts nice and doesn’t follow through. Not really bad, just disappointing.
