3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the Rover. (5.2%) A dark, dark brown beer with a small, minimal actually, tan head. Burnt malt, coffee grit and chocolate in the aroma. Dryish. Burnt malt flavor with coffee and chocolate. Long coffee-bitter finish. Dry, full-bodied mouthfeel. The beer is maybe a bit one-dimentional, but especially for a 5.5% ABV beer, it’s really good. (080710)

Bottle@The Rover, Göteborg. Low dense tanned head. Very dark brown, a couple of shades from black. Initial aroma of burnt and smoky malts, leading to a scent of sweet dark chocolate. Dryish dark malts in the flavor together with a fine bitterness, roast, and a noticable fruitiness. Light to medium body. Malty, light bitterish end.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a black with a large tan head. Aroma is all things coffee. Some dark chocolate seep though but coffee takes over. Flavor is burnt coffee with some roasted nuts and chocolate. If this brewer was going for a "coffee-breakfast" stout they were spot on. A good stout for coffee lovers but those not a fan of the morning bean may be turned off by the strong coffee aspects.

Kahki head with a black body. Smells like unfermented wort with some almonds. There is also some coffee. The taste is roasted coffee with almond shells. There is some dark chocolate. Plenty of carbonation is a little distracting. A decent, well roasted stout.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. Pours black with no chance of seeing light through it and a 2 cm light tan head that is moderately lasting. Aroma of coffee and malt. Initial flavor is light, some coffee and sweet malts. After taste becomes kind of watered down, some coffee and a hint of dry hoppiness. Limited lacing, moderate carbonation, limited alcohol presence, and a very disappointing light body. I looked at this beer and had high hops after the pour, but it was more watery in texture than a stout should be. Would not drink again.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours black with a HUGE lasting ( i finished the beer two days ago but there is still a head) beige head. The aroma is roasted malts, slightly burnt coffee, and a touch of metal. The flavor is much of the same; roasted malt, burnt coffee, and the metal is more pronounced. Medium bodied. The finish does not sit well on my palate. One and done.

The pour is pretty much black. Roasted coffee aroma with a hint of malt. The taste is a coffee, malt, bit of hops, and some bitter on the end. A decent effort.
