4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had this one at Lord Mike’s Pub in Amsterdam a few times. This really took me back as the first stout that really made me say “wow” that’s good beer. Since then I’ve had it a few times on draft and from widget cans. It is a smooth great dry stout. Pours very dark brown almost black with a lasting creamy tan lacy, thick head. Smells of dark and roasted malt, coffee and chocolate with some smoky elements. Eventually bits of dark berry comes out as it warms. Medium watery body that goes down very well. Very smooth but a little watery. It has elements of dark malt like a Mild and rather thin for a stout. Sweet with a bitter roast bitter finish. The roast is light with chocolate and coffee. Super drinkable and smooth.

Bevuta parecchie volte, molto meglio alla spina che un lattina. Forse come gusto risulta poco eqilibrato

Bittersweet aftertaste from the beginning and sour afterwards

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Old rating from 2007. 4.3% ABV bottle version. Black with a big creamy beige head. Soft aromas of coffee, toasted malt and chocolate. A hint of sweetness on the palate but very well-balanced. Body is a tad thin and not very complex, but still solid for the style. Smooth and clean dry finish.
