My first beer from Israel I believe. Nice aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor has the chocolate and roasted malt balanced by some hops. Sweet with a creamy feel. A bit under rated I think. Shalom. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml brown bottle. Black pour, massive fluffy and sticky brown head. Nose has chocolate and caramel and mild coffee. Taste has big roast and heavy chocolate malts. Finishes with some lingering chocolate malts and light coffee notes. A good stout, not what i think of when i hear "dry stout".... but....worth trying.

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.
