Tap @Bishop Arms. Pitch black color, small tan head. Coffee, spicy, malty aroma. Coffee, milky, malty, buttery flavor. It’s like drinking coffee with milk. Buttery coffee aftertaste. Very nice beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap (Bishops Arms Vasagaten, Stockholm)
Spicy chilli aroma, maybe some beaniness too. Super coffee retronasals. Rich palate, covers every surface, but the carbonation is very crisp, maybe too crisp. Mostly a heavy roast, with extra coffee. No wow, but not too gimicky either (even though it has 2 clear gimicks), it is a lovely stout. Maybe it was served too cold, as it warmed it became smoother and milker. Very nice.

Tap @ BBF 12.
Pour pitch black, with a small tan head. Aroma is all about the charcoal, coffee/Kahlua, tar. The taste is rather F***ed up sweet, with a bitter aftertaste. Medium body, with a pretty flat carbonation.
- Once again, I love närke, but they sure make some f**ed up stuff ;)

Tons of roasty grains malts, coffee bean, cocoa pwder, dust, wood, carmelized sugar and espresso. Just tons of mocha and java notes in this one. Smooth as can be and drinkable. Very creamy and tasty meh, try dis.
