Bottle, thnx to Tomer, cheers. Pours a black beer with a small brown head. Aroma of light coffee and molasses with caramel. Flavor is medium sweet with coffee touches. Some bitter aftertaste. Quite balanced, light carbonation and a soft mouthfeel with a dry finish. Decent beer.

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.

330ml bottle. Aroma is full of roasty malt, dark chocolate, toffee and black bread, with faint coffee and a certain tangy note. Dark brown-black in color with a persistent, fine, dark tan head, this was bottle-conditioned but I left the majority of the sediment in the bottle. Flavor profile is full of bittersweet chocolate, dark malt roast, toasted grain and toffee, some faint licorice and molasses here, finishing semi-dry and seeing a touch of hop bitterness late, along with that discernible tangy note as before. Very smooth on the palate with a mildly effervescent feel and a medium body. Some nice complexity here, this is a good example of the style and my first Israeli beer.

Bottle from Canal’s EHT. Pours out black with a small tan head and a solid amount of carbonation. Aroma is of deep roasty malts, lots of chocolate, light earthy coffee. Taste is dry cocoa powder, roasty/toasted malts, coffee grounds, chocolate and some light drying bitterness on the back. Solid

@ 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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[Thanks to tomer]. Bottle. Black colour with a foamy beige head with good duration. Aroma has notes of roasted notes, light cocoa, and coffee. Flavor is roasty, some licorice and coffee beans notes, slightly wood and ashes. The final is mild bittery with strong coffee and roasty presence on palate.
