Black one with a nice foamy and stable beige head. Looks pretty good.... Aroma of peat and burnt wood, roasted grains, some tobacco. Medium bodied stout with a nice oily burnt wood character with a sourish bit of hop and peat. Some caramel, earthy dark chocolate.

Tap. Poured black with a firm, beige foam. Roasted aroma with coffee, molasses, plum, hints of red grapes, somewhat earthy, woody. Light body, medium carbonation. Wasn’t outstanding, but it was good.

500 ml bottle. Rated @ 22.2.2010.
Pours a beautiful black colour with a foamy beige head. Syrup, chocolate and roasted malts on the nose. Similar flavour with some sweetness. Medium bodied and a very rich mouthfeel. A very decent low-ABV stout.

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).

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
