3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown beer (not black) with greyish brown fizzy head that fades slowly. Primary smell is chalk, then more subtle smells of roasted malt, coffee, liquorice, hint of chocolate, and hops. Taste is bitter, lots of coffee, plums, some figs and a bit of liqourice. Mouthfeel is very mediocre, a bit watery for a stout. Nice spicy hops and pepper in aftertaste, although it could be stronger. Could be better, but certainly not bad.

Cask at grove, huddesfield. Black with foamy tan head. Aroma is smokey and ashy with some soy and fruit, also quite ’farmy’. Taste is very ashy bitter. Medium body and light carbonation. Good stuff.

dark brown color. Superb roasted malt character in the nose but lacks a bit of depth. The mouth show excellent roastiness, dry with hint of licorice. Medium body. Excellent roasty finish. Honestly it is tough to explain why the roasted malt character is just so much superior to other stouts but it is, though it lacks the complexity that I like, it is still really great.

A bit too doughy in the nose, but otherwise nicely balanced, simple, and enjoyable.

Soapy tan head, though creamy at the top. Aroma is roasted malts and a lump of charcoal. Taste is also roasted malts but mixed with strong coffee. Aftertaste is not as bitter as the flavour would lead you to expect.

Caña en cimmeria el 25-01-2015. color negro intenso con espuma beige. Aromas y sabores maltosos tostados con ligeros ahumados cacaos y especias, ligero ligero amargo final y toques algo quemados. No esta mal, cuerpo medio suave y fácil de beber con 6 vol. Una pequeña sorpresa stout inglesa.

Very very good balance to the bitter direction. It's a nice, sweet, and not-very-hoppy aroma. It's a perfect beer to enjoy by itself. I have a hard time to picture it with food, just too sweet and too bitter for a nice mix.

@ OT 15-1-17: riktig trevlig svart vätska med fina tjocka toner av rostat malt, kaffe och choklad. En rund och mjuk munnkänsla med lagom hetta.
