Flaske delt med Ovesen på tappekveld mars-15: nesten svart med et rødlig skjær, fint gardin/filmskum. Aromaog smak av røstet malt, kaffe og litt vanilje. Slank munnfølelse og tørr, kort ettersmak med lett bitterhet. En smule vandig. Ikke det helt store for meg.

Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 24.03.15. Black. Pale brown head and lacing. Aroma of roasted barley, sweet dark chocolate and coffee. Similar taste, also with vanilla. Fine aftertaste, with vanilla and dark chocolate. Perhaps a bit waterish and overcarbonated.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Auchan supermarket in Calais. Ruby-black with a craggy beige head and a very light but prickly fizz. Creamy chocolate Horlicks to the front with a bit of black coffee, a waft of smoke and a slight sour and metallic note. Maybe some blackberry too. Sweetish up front but drying in the finish. The flavours are a little subdued but yeah, this is not bad.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
75 cl. Decanted to a jug. Poured with a nice, loose, rocky head that holds well. As expected, almost black. Nice aroma, malty with some hops and slightly smoky. Balanced taste, slightly sweet start with medium bitterness. Average carbonation, this washes nicely over the tongue with a slightly spicy taste. A long finish that is dry, leading one to another sip. A lifelong fan of stouts and porters, this does not disappoint. This is how a stout should be: dry-ish with a bitter, dry finish. A fine example of a dark, dry stout.
