Dark black. Dark tan head. Quite dry. Strong coffee at first but it goes away very quickly.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big rich earthy almost farmy chocolate scents. Thick black with with a slowly fading froth brown head. Taste is hop bitter, coffee bitter, and raw chocolate bitter all at the same time. The bitter just slowly fades away.

A very surprising brew! A real stout coming from Israel and it is Kosher approved. Strong, bitter flavor, as a stout should be. Rivals any stout coming from Ireland for sure. God bless the Rabbi who brew this one!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Opaque black with tan head, which fades to flat. Loveliest looking of the bunch. The aroma is Nescafe. Appealingly acidic, although syrupy. Soft, low carbonation. Aromas also include tree seeds and nuts. Some acidic coffee and chocolate persist in the flavors. Not great but drinkable.

Aroma is some light hints of the rich malts, fairly pale otherwise. Taste is a rich roasty maltiness that is balanced pretty well with some light hopiness that leaves a slight tanginess. The malt depth isnt quite as deep as i hoped. Body is black with a creamy beige head that retains well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ooh, Israeli beer! Havenít had too many of those. This one pours jet black with huge head, though the head really isnít that super thick and disappears rather quickly. There is a strong barley aroma offset by heavy carbonation which adds a citrus flavour to it, so itís not as deep or stable as it really could or should be. The flavour is strong milky barley, nice and meaty, somewhat sweet, but simple. Lacking complexity. A solid stout, but nothing is here that would propel this brew into the stratosphere.

Draft at the bridge. Pours black with a khaki head. A bit of chocolate on the nose. roasts are slightly bigger on the tongue but still feel subdued. Finishes clean. Itís decent but not good.

Bottle. Best of the malka beers, tastes more like a sweet stout which is humorous, lots of milk chocoalte in there.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to tulip
Lots of malt, coffee, and chocolate aromas. Itís black with a creamy 1/2 cm tan to brown head. Taste is all that the aroma hinted at but a bit watery and a kind of a wheaty after-taste.

The coffee really steps up in the taste. Itís solidly there, the main flavour. Nice slightly bitter chocolate notes as well with the roasted barley and malts, black bread and a tiny hint of vanilla that mixes with the coffee for a mocha-like taste.
Coffee flavour is not over powering but it is there. Some bakers chocolate mixed with the roasted barley and maltiness. It gives a mocha flavour. I enjoyed very much.
