2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle. Black with a tan head. The aroma of soy sauce and burnt malts. The flavor starts sweet and plenty of dried dark fruit, candies and and milk chocolate. Then gets a little rough of wood chips and smoke. The aftertaste is dry and bitter, a bit like eating a box of chalks. Unfortunately, the thin body makes it bit watery. I’d like to have a more compact feeling that we normally find in an imperial stout.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is standard stout sensations, nothing really pops out but there is roasted malts, coffee and a smaller note of chocolate. The taste is solid and robust stout, very well contained and in the area where it is supposed to be. It is diplomatic and well mannered, almost excusing itself for invading your privacy. But... it fades away really quick, and I don’t get that much of after taste. And I guess here’s where the "Foreign Stout" classification sets in, it delivers more than a Porter, but it lacks the muscle and power from a modern Imperial Stout to hang around and keep you company. Still, it’s Swedish, robust, very well brewed and perfect as a weekday stout with its slightly lower abv.

Tap@mitm, 2010. Black. Dark roasty coffee, dry chocolate. Roasty, some salt licorice. Pretty ok. Not overpowering or sweety full. More like a robust porter than impy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2015 Black with thin head. Nice roast on this one, a lot of coffee and some slight chocolate. Taste is upfront a nice bitterness which evens out with the coffee and roastiness, very one trick pony forward, but still, nice, and an excellent stout for 7%.
