2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ Glenfiddich Warehouse No 68, Stockholm. Black with light brown creamy head. Aroma is buttery, with roasted malt and cold coffee. Thin body with some bitterness, dissipating quickly into a watery finish. I always come back to this stout simply because I love the "extra" version, and I always gets disappointed, this is simply nowhere even near Sotholmen Extra.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
300ml, served rather chilled from tap before noon at Glenfiddich Warehouse in Gamla Stan. 4% abv. according to the information on the board. Nice, beige tophead. Near pitch black body. Subdued smell of roasted, semi-sweet malts. Roasted malt in flavour containing hints of coffee bitterness. Easy to drink and rather watered to the palate (Stockholm, 28.07.2010).

Black with a small creamy tan head.
Roasted aroma with malt and chocolate, also some coffee. Quite bitter roasted and hoppy taste with chocolate and coffee. Good but a bit weak. Sotholmen Extra Stout is much better.

Bottle. Thin stout. A little bit of roastiness, a little bit of coffee, a little bit of chocolate... too little of everything.
