3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ Benzai. Pitch black oily with a small light brown head. Smells oatmeal, roasty, some chocolate, some coffee, fullgrain bread. Strong smell for its abv. Tastes oatmeal, cornflakes, slightly roasty in the aftertaste. Some chocolate but not very strong. With more abv this beer would be pretty amazing. With this abv its not at all perfect since its a bit thin, but still it’s quite a good beer if you ask me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from La Cave à Bulles, Paris, bb April 2014
Black color, with small head. Basic aroma of roasted malt, burnt coffee, and traces of bread. The mouthfeel is dry, the body weak; it has a straight forward flavor of roasted malts, with traces of milk and liquorice; correct bitterness.
As entry-level Stout, it has been correctly brewed; no thrills though.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Frothy brown head. Deep brown/black body. Aroma of flowers, hops and only a few malts - rather unusual for a stout. Lightlt bitter start-off with little indications that would point to a stout, rather a blond beer. Moderately bitter finish with a stickiness and malts that can be attributed to a stout. Lightly bodied, especially for a stout. Highly carbonated.
