3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught at Bishop’s Arm, Järntorget, Gothenburg, 1 Aug 2007) Pitch black colour with brief brown head. Roasted nose with tobacco, chocolate and black coffee. Roasted taste with notes of tobacco, liquorice and black bitter coffee. A bit like unsweetened, black, cold coffee. Dry, rather thin body. Very nice one, but some more backbone wouldn’t hurt.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Haket-Göteborg, shared with a bunch of RBs. Pitch black with a nice, creamy head. The aroma has massive chocolate notes and the flavour is hoppy, has a lot of chocolate, a light sweetness and a lot of coffee. The body is surprisingly full, and I’m a sucker for beers with a lot of flavour even if the ABV is low, so I gets extra points for this and it’s charm!! 2372

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2009 Bottle at a restaurant in Malmo, 19th May 09. Very near black, small tan head. Soft roasted malt aroma. Typical roasted, toasty flavour. Quite dry. Overall a decent dry stout - far better than when I originally tried it in Malmo a couple of years before (original rate was a 1.9 on draught at the Bishops Arms)

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2013 Bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki, Svenska Dagar 2006).
Smells almost lagery. Definitely a beer, but says "light". Which is odd, as it is black, and has a beautiful dark head. The first taste disappoints - it just has 1 strong very burnt flavour, but no depth. Subsequently comes over as more of an Irish stout. OK.(4:5:5:3:9=2.6)

Bottle (4%). Black colour with a greyish brown head. Roasted coffee aroma, rather sweet with notes of caramel, toffee & smoke. Roasted & yeasty flavour, a bit sourish, with a decent bitterness in the end. Light carbonation. It’s a bit too thin...
