3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Stout z angielskimi chmielami, ale jak na zlosc nie przypomina mi nawet średnich Stoutow Brytyjskich. Wyglad to ciemne piwo z refleksem czerwieni, wiec nie jest czarne i geste, piana natomiast fajna ladan dobrze się tworzy ale opada szybko, na szczęście sa slady na pintowej szklance. Zapach piernikow z Torunia, w smaku trochę trufli, piernika i sporo, naprawdę słodkiej coca-colli. Na mój gust zdecydowanie za słodkawe i za mało wytrawności i palonosci. Sredniaczek

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bert’s Bierhuis in Utrecht. The beer is very dark brown colored and pours a cream colored and sticky foam, with nice carbonation.
The aroma has notes of cacao and chocolate. But also a freshness and fruitiness is noticable. And what’s left is some notes of wood and smoke.
The taste is smooth and medium bodied, with a nice freshness from the CO2. The smoke from the aroma is well noticable. In the background is nice fruitiness with reminds me of forest fruits.
The finish is long and dry, and has clear notes of chocolate and coffee and some light bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
From 0,33 bottle; pours clear, dark brown to black with a huge, frothy & slightly creamy, light brown head. Heavy malty aroma with roasted malts & coffee. Taste is slightly sweet and light bitter with roasted malts dominating the flavor. Finish is medium sweet and also increasing in bitterness leading to a long, medium bitter, yet sweet finish. Medium bodied with a slightly watery texture and soft carbonation. Could have been more creamy & full bodied for me, otherwise not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, dried fruit, bread, liquorice, chocolate and roasted malts.
Turbid/opaque ruby/black beer with a medium beige head.
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, dried fruit, liquorice and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread and roasted malts.
A tasty, rather complex and balanced stout. Could have been more intense to give him a more distinct character.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Well hello there good-lookin’, how you doin’? Pours a mysterious, very deep brown body with a large, creamy, light tan head that finally settles as a thin and everlasting layer that decorates the glass with curtains of foam. Malty, fruity, sweet and quite strong aroma of roasted malt, mild coffee and generic fruitiness, with a sprinkle of ash in the back. Strong flavour of roasted malt, coffee, a good amount of generic fruits and ashy hints. Light to moderate sweet taste with a moderate bitter and long-lasting finish. Close to full body, smooth texture, soft carbonation. A nice one, I really like the unusual mix of roasted malt and the pronounced yeasty fruitiness. It’s nowhere near a BIPA, the fruits don’t feel hoppy at all.
