3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Maximus Stout 6)
Bottle 330ml at home, poured inot a snifter, ABV 6%
Very dark brown and very close to black in colour. The head is small, one finger inn height, a bit thin, tan in colour, with okay retention, leaving light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of chococate, roasted malts, light acid.
Taste has again light acidity in it, roasted malts, cold coffee, less chocolate thatn the aroma implied but still there, some fruity touches too, nice bitterness on the aftertaste.
Medium thin on the body, a bit high on the carbonation, quite dry palate.
Overall very good.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Poland)
Black, small head. Slightly minerally roast aroma. Chalk and iron in the taste - liver. Simple palate, not so heavy, but I do get a hint of alcohol later. Makes me wonder if the staff poured me an 8 rather than a 6.
