3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark oily black in color, light khaki head.
Nice roasty chocolate malt character in the nose, very well masked alcohol, a tiny bit of dark fruit, carmal, and vanilla.
Taste is full of chocolate, a bit of chili, some mote vanilla. I get some mote fruit, defiantly a nice coffee bitterness,
Mouth feel has a pretty high carbonation. A bit creamy, there is a bit more chilli in the finish. Pretty thin body.
Overall not bad, I love using this stout for cooking but rarely buy it to drink. Not a bad beer at all though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Finely brewed stout. The palate was fairly complex with interesting flavours that I have never witnessed in a beer before. I coudln’t even tell what most of them were. Nose was coffee and nuts. Flavour was of caramel, chocolate, coffee and some sort of spice that I can’t quite put my finger on. Not my favourite to drink. The flavour really overwhelms me at times, but I would drink this again.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Highly skeptical of beer from a third world shit hole, I was pleasantly surprised. Pours black/brown with big milk chocolate head. Aroma sweet but slightly sour, in a good way. Some plum flavors with some roasted flavors a hint of bitter chocolate and some toffee. Very nice body, full and creamy. nice amount of carbonation and it goes down nice and smooth, just like a good stout should. Very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not a bad stout, a bit surprising, since it comes from a non-typical location of such a beer. A bit thin, and uncomplicated in taste, but still a good effort.

This looks absolutely beautiful. Pitch black body, with a foamy toffee coloured head, which cleared up to leave lacing of the same colour. Nice espresso and malt aroma The flavour packs a punch of coffee, chocolate, and perhaps licorice. The finish is long and warming. A great beer.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Was greatly disappointed by this beer. Not a very good stout in my opinion, and I like stouts. Not even close to a Guinness, or a Murphy’s.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle found at Auchan Kirchberg. Deep black colour, lasting head.
First taste is fruit like sweetnees, followed by coffee notes and a typical stout finish lasting nicely.
A good surprise.

From bottle. Part of February Dayton Beer Tasting event. Poured black with dark tan head. Aromas of coffee and chocolate followed by similar tastes. Much better than expected. Great value.
