3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Poured medium-deep brown with a sticky cap of dark tan head. The aroma picked up a hefty and lovely dose of moderately-roasted coffee and dark chocolates, with complementary accents of vanilla and lactic sweets. The flavor was also centered around the coffee, with more of a burnt impression and some slightly sour beans (in a good way).. coffee bitterness and some molasses/tarry sweetness on the edges.. left more coffee along with a nice spicy note on the finish. Medium-bodied with a grainy feel from the coffee on the palate.. enough prickly carbonation to move it along.. really good brew, but I won’t buy it again at its price.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mörkbrun, nästan svart, öl med givmilt beigt skum. Dofter av mörk choklad, espresso, vanilj och syrligt godis. I smaken detsamma samt lakritstoner och rostad malt. Lätt kolsyrig munkänsla. God om än ingen fantastisk stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 5-04-2009 (2008 Version Rwanda Gatsinga - 6%ABV) This beer has a small tan head when poured with good retention, opaque dark brown body, and a fair amount of lacing. The Aroma is malty, chocolate, coffee, and roasty. The Taste is sweet, malty, coffee, roasty, and chocolate. The Palate is lightly tingly and this beer is light-medium bodied. All-in-all, this beer is quaffable, but lost a higher overall rating due to the lackluster flavor and the thinness of the body given the beer style.
