4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Almost black and almost no head, just a tiny 1 mm dark brown head when i poured it hard. Aroma of berries, milk chocolate, really dark coffee, tobacco and caramel. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, bitter coffee. Just a little bit sweet, ends somewhat dry and bitter. Sticky and thick texture.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Blak pour with a semi dense brown colored head and lots of lacing. The nose has a lot of roasted malt and licorice but not much vanilla at all. What a shame. The mouthfeel is creamy with soft carbonation. The taste is again on the roasted side with lots of licorice and just a little sweetness and infortunately kind of one dimensional - everything is a little too roasted here.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (Pudel Bar, Tallinn)
Treacly aroma, a bit of marmite too. Black, small dark tan head. Rich full palate, smooth and sweet, pleasant carbonation. Deep roast, a little harshly burnt. Some alcohol warmth, definitely says at least 9%, but not 13% initially. Alas as it warms, the aroma picks up a fair kick of grain spirit. Not getting vanilla at all, and if there’s any coffee it just joins the generic burnt-protein stout thing. Alcohol again comes out in the taste later, and begins to make 13% quite believable. Pretty OK strong stout, but drinkability not so good as there’s no balance. Stretching it out as a sipper doesn’t help, as the alcohol just gets stronger and more obvious and intrusive.
