Courtesy of DSG, thanks Barak!!!
The beer in the glass is opaque black with a beautiful brown and creamy head. The smell is sour malty, bitter, with strong coffee-notes. The beer starts very malty, creamy, mild, with strong notes of roasted coffe. The center part is considerably milder and the sourness comes through a little better, coupled with a good yeast aroma. Goes in a roasted malty finish, slightly tart, with strong aromas of coffee and chocolate!

@ 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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33L bottle, small head that dissapears very quickly. uniform opaque black colour, aroma of charred wood, dark chocolate and whiffs of smoke, charred wood dominates the flavour with hints of dried fruits and dark bread, almost completely dry. feels quite fat and silky, long bitter aftertaste. Quite impressive.

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 thereís 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. Thereís nothing ambitious about this, itís a cut and dry stout, and a decent one at that. This is pricey, but itís from Israel, itís had to travel quite a way.
