12 oz. bottle, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma of oats, light roast, and a touch of cocoa. Flavour brings out oats, metallic notes, and light roast. Quite full-flavoured, if not a bit thin on the mouthfeel. Solid stuff.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2014 Re-rate 2/12: Bottle sample at a Stouts & Porters blind tasting at Sar HaMashkaot Ramat Gan. Black with a light brown head. Acidic vegetal and fruity aroma with a bit of roastiness. Acidic-sweetish fruity flavor with a bit of roastiness and a bit of chocolate. Light to medium-bodied. Infected. 4/4/4/3/8=2.3
Re-rate 12/8/10: Draught sample at the brewery in Yehiam. Roasty and coffee-ish. Aroma suggests something was a bit off with the fermentation (maybe the beer’s too young?). 5/4/7/3/12=3.1
Bottle. Black-colored with a huge, slowly-diminishing brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, some coffee, a bit of fruits and some acidic malt notes. Bittersweet roasty flavor with chocolate, coffee and some fruitiness. Finishes bitter with some herbal and smoky touches. Silky mouthfeel. Not bad. 6/4/7/4/13=3.4
