Krämig, med smak av tjära och rök, dessvärre förstör den tydliga beskan helhetsupplevelsen.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to SaintMatty. It pours near black with a small tan head. The nose is roasty, coffee, soy sauce, toasted sesame, chocolate and a touch of mint. The taste is earth, roasted malt, pleasant bitterness, coffee grinds, ash, light soy sauce and green pepper with a dry, roasty finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Decent foreign stout, but not overly drinkable.

Black beer, beautiful dark brown head. Aroma is roasted malts. Taste is surprisingly tasteless, just a soft creamy mouthfeel. I guess the taste the same as the aroma. Soft roasted finish that could be stronger. A bit of chocolate in there somewhere.

Aroma has roasted notes, some licorice and coffee. Flavour has somewhat salty licorice, soy sauce and some coffee. Good, but I expected more.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good taste and smell. A little metallic taste, maybe a bit thin in flavor. The aftertaste is left long. Good beer but would still not recomend this beer.
