3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. 7.0%. Best before 04.15. Pours black with a dark tan head. Almost no lacing. Sweetish and roasted aroma, with a hint of barbecue. Hints of wood and salt as it warms. Flavour is roasted and a bit smoked. Light wood as it warms, as well as a remote cardboard overtone. Bitter roasted finish with a lingering tart note. A bit too much carbonation. Overall pretty good, well-balanced, but lacks some complexity. 21.05.14.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flaska. Svart md moccafärgat skum. Doftar soja, bitter choklad, stall, sur frukt. Rökigheten dominerar i smaken, men där hittas också kaffe, mörk choklad, rostad malt och en rejäl sälta. En njutbar stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
BOTTLE 25CL from rosenbergh. Thanks, Jan!
Look: pitch black with a big and dense espresso head.
Aroma: rich chocolate, coffee, a tad salty/savoury and juct a touch of smoked sausage.
Taste: roasted „acidity”, coffee, light chocolate sweetness, solid hop bitterness and ashes in the finish.
Great beer. With only 6,7 abv it is one foot into the imperial territory.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the Bishops Arms (Gustav Adolfs Torg) Malmo. Poured a deep mahogany with a frothy light tan head with plenty of broken lace. The aroma is creamy roasted malt with a slightly resin sourness which reduced with time. The flavour is medium sour light bitter with a dry malt resin light liqourice palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Not so bad but I think it would be a whole lot better if they sold more of this beer. It seemed a little stale. I was probably the only person that ordered this beer all night long.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 01/02/14, ABV 6.7%. Pours dark brown, almost black with a decent-sized, quickly dissipating, mocha-colored head. Aroma is quite a lot of cocoa and light dark fruit. Roast comes through more powerful later on. Taste is a lot of roasted coffee, medium cocoa. Cocoa on the finish. Roasted malts, even ashiness on the aftertaste. Surprisingly light, should be fuller. Good carbonation. Doesn’t really handle spicy Mexican food that well, though usually dunkels, porters and stouts do.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Opaque black colour with delicate small head. Strong dark chocolate, vanilla and coffee aromas. Really, really good aroma! Taste has lots of coffee, some sweet dark chocolate and some grassy hop flavors. Taste isn’t on par with the brilliant aroma. Medium-to-rich body and quite high carbonation. Pretty good stout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A 6.6% stout? Well, that certainly didn’t prepare me for such a rich black body and incredibly stable, very dark coffee tan head. Aroma of almonds, coffee, bit roasted. Smooth toasty and dark malts. (33cl bottle brought by Bertanne from Uppsala, thanks!)
