500ml bottle (M&S Rocca al Mare, Tallinn)
Pretty black, small tight head. Very nice estery stout aroma, pleasant dry dark roast, touch of chocolate, even some zing that reminds me of ginger. Less exciting in the mouth, but still a pretty solid quaffable dry stout. Just a nice clean roast, burnt but not astringent. Hint of chocolate, but nowhere near the excitement of the aroma. Finish a bit burnt but brief.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer has a typical stout aroma. The beer is almost black at the naked eye, dark ruby red with a light behind it. The thick layer of foam is rough and has a dark almond color. The foam disapears quickly. A stout isn’t a ’foam-beer’. The smell is amazing. The sweet smell of the delicious roasted barley arises you. It is accompanied by coffe and dark chocolate tones. The aroma is near perfect. The taste has a bitter roast taste. The bitternes slightly out balances the sweetness. There is also a little citrusy sweet taste of hops, although this taste isn’t that strong. The finish is mostly that good roasted taste, which stays with you for quite some time. The palate is nice. The fine gas bubbles tingle the tongue, but aren’t to rough. Nice.

Pours deep mahogany with a tan head. Starts with some quite nice smooth chocolatey notes along with a little blackcurrant frutiness. The finish is dry and a touch metallic. Maybe a touch thin too. Otherwise pretty good.
