3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Aroma is full of roasty malt, dark chocolate, toffee and black bread, with faint coffee and a certain tangy note. Dark brown-black in color with a persistent, fine, dark tan head, this was bottle-conditioned but I left the majority of the sediment in the bottle. Flavor profile is full of bittersweet chocolate, dark malt roast, toasted grain and toffee, some faint licorice and molasses here, finishing semi-dry and seeing a touch of hop bitterness late, along with that discernible tangy note as before. Very smooth on the palate with a mildly effervescent feel and a medium body. Some nice complexity here, this is a good example of the style and my first Israeli beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330. Thanks, A! Pours jet black with a loose and sudsy grayish head. Very sweet nose, a little milky, lots of milk chocolate. Thick and sticky mid palate with moderate carb. Very sweet mid palate, especially for a dry stout, lots of unfermented sugars, chocolatey, a little bit of sweet fruitiness like snack cherries. Long sticky sweet finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Opaque hue with creamy brown head that settled. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, cocoa, toffee, molasses, soy, cola. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness throughout with a great astringent bitterness in the following and a slight metallic finish. Overall this is a good brew.
