UPDATED: JAN 26, 2008 Bottle Stockholm Beer Festival ... Deep black ... lots of deep roast malt nose ... sweet slightly meaty ... quite fruity ... rich roast malts ... little bitter bite ... little spice ... little spirit burn .
tk2 Bottle at home .... Mouth feel is a bit too fizzy for what i expect for a Stout ... Rich roast malt nose ... full flavour rich sweet but a bit over spirity 4.0 ->3.5 This is a good exaple of a beer that needed a bigger sample to truly get its measure. While wonderfully rich the Alcohol shows through too much to be a world class beer. and for my money id rather drink their milk stout.
