Bottle, thanks Eddan.
Black with a small browniish head. Thin and vapid with some light roasted malt, chocolate and syrup. Nothing to write home about.

@ Eddan: absolut ingen doft. Smaken är ganska tunn med kanske några små arrak-toner men då är jag snäll. Detta är inget att hänga sig upp på.

Pours a deep black with a medium brown head. Aroma of dark roasted caramel malt, cacao with some mild dark fruit notes. Taste is of sweet dark roasted caramel malt, cacao and some espresso notes. Palate is a medium body, slight creamy mouth feel with good carbonation. Finish is a flavorful dark roasted caramel and chocolate malt some distant dark fruit and mild liquorice notes ending with a moderate bitter dry roasted malt and espresso flavor.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled July 16, 2013 (2.5 months old).
Appearance: Pitch black body with a tall and viscous brown head. The head has good retention and settles into a frothy full coating.
Aroma: The aroma has a coffee and cocoa presence, it leans dry, but is fragrant and enjoyable.
Taste: The flavor is a bit muddy, but there’s certainly a roasted coffee and chocolate presence with an earthiness about it. The finish is rather quick and semi-dry.
Palate: Creamy and soft, rather thick.
Overall: I really want to like this, I am impressed that there are people in Israel brewing stouts and other beer. There’s nothing ambitious about this, it’s a cut and dry stout, and a decent one at that. This is pricey, but it’s from Israel, it’s had to travel quite a way.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled on 16.7.2013. Nose of heavy coffee and rich dark chocolate, occasionally fruity bursts of plum, a smooth and sultry appetizer! Pours deep dark brown-black with a dark brown head. Taste very, very dry, some light burned notes under waves of lovely, gentle dark roast; there’s some chocolate and medium-heavy coffee, but the whole thing is utterly velveteen and huggable. Low bitterness, clean, soft full body with low carbonation. This is the best of their three I’ve had, by far.

330ml bottle pours black in color with a 2 finger light brown head that has decent retention and settles to reveal some decent lacing as well. Aroma is roasted grains and chocolate and hints of coffee. Taste is a roasted grain and coffee bitterness with a dark chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with some light carbonation. A nicely done dry stout with a good balance and surprisingly good.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2013 Bottle. Pours a deep brown almost black color with a thin tan head. Dark chocolate, cocoa and roasted malts aroma. Typical stout flavors of dark chocolate and malts with some smoky and wood notes, mild bitter aftertaste. Medium bodied, very drinkable. Liked this stout.
