3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
200ml, good measure, tap at The Rover. Devil-black body with a deep rusty shade. Brownish head, slowly fading, leaving nice lacework behind. Smell of smoked, salty sausages. Rich taste character of slightly smoked malts, liquorice and dark bitter malts offset by vanilla barrel. Well made and well balanced (Göteborg, 03.08.2010).

25 cl. botella @ Akkurat, Stkhlm. Black colour, nice light brown medium creamy head. Roasty malty and caramel aroma with liqourice, coffee and light smoke. Good filling mouthfeel. Pleasant well roasted maltiness and caramel in the flavour, sweet with some coffee and chocolate, liqourice, some smoke and bit lactic.

250 ml bottle. Very flavorful and creamy stout. Dark syrup, coffee and dark chocolate, with a nice little portion of sweet citrusy notes to meat the roasted.bitterness. Big and full flavors for it’s ABV. 250 ml is a perfect serving size for this beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Den doftar mycket stärk espressokaffe och smakar förträfflig. Fina brända toner, oljig (det tycker vi om) och över huvud taget en ganska kraftig fin stout.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pouring thick to very dark beige-brown head, stable over crude oil-black beer. Lightly smoked, lightly salty nose on top of sweetness - or umami if you prefer - soy sauce, bit liquorice, and an intense perfume, as from musk, but totally masked by the head. Very dry, smokey, ashy taste with bitter chocolate in the finish. Just a semblance of sweetness after some warming in the mouth - less perfumed than the nose, plain. Slick, thick, viscous; discreet warming. Not so very exciting in the end - but pretty expensive...

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a black beer, just a little very brown head. Smell is really smokey, hints of coffee and smoked meats. Taste is simmilar to the smell. Smokey, meaty with a hint of coffee but not too much.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a lovely, thick, dark color, with some head depending on the vigor of the pour (naturally). Rich chocolate flavors though not at the high end of the spectrum. Roasted, chewy flavors, with a solid palate throughout. Many thanks to Mirja and Christopher for a round of this beer, and it was a memorable night to share with such wonderful people. Best wishes. (bottle at Akkurat, Stockholm)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tar colored. Thick beige head that quickly dissolves and leaves some residue on the glas. The flavor is rich, with dark chocolate and bitter hoppy tones. The finish is more emphasized than most stouts and leaves you refreshed and thisrsty for more. The worst thing about this beer is the pathetic 25 cl bottle. Come on....
